Cancel outbound FTE transfer

We have a message flow which contains a FTEOutput node to create an outbound transfer based on multiple input messages. In case of an expiring transfer (i.e., not all input messages arrived in a pre-defined period) the outbound transfer needs to be cancelled. Otherwise the temporary file will remain in the broker agents Transfers folder.
Unfortunately this is also true if one of the input messages is invalid. In this case no output file shall be written to the destination. However, right now the transfer cannot be cancelled.

If, in one of the two cases, later on another transfer is started to the same destination file the new content will be appended to the already existing data resulting in invalid files sent to the destination!

We need a possibility to remove the temporary file of the FTEOutput node by sending a cancellation message to the FTEOutput node.
It would be enough if we could send a message to the Finish File terminal of the FTEOutput node containing a cancellation flag in the LocalEnvironment.

    RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been in the status of Under Consideration. We agree that this enhancement suggestion would bring value to the product. Whilst noting the long period this RFE has been open and only 2 votes gathered, we will continue to monitor for signs of popularity. Status of this RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
