Apply-Orbit-File Step without internet

I want to be able to use a locally downloaded orbit file for the step Apply-Orbit-File on Sentinel-1 data files.

Im working on a script that will run on distributed systems and will process multiple scripts in parallel. To be able to do this I want to use previously downloaded Orbit files and not make multiple API calls to the site. How to best approach tis problem

if the orbit file is present in this folder .\snap\auxdata\Orbits\Sentinel-1\POEORB\S1B\2016\10\ (example for october 2016), SNAP automatically takes it. So if your script manages to create year and months subfolders for the downloaded orbit files, it should work.


worked thanks
