These are the general settings for the SFTP adapter. In most cases these settings are the only ones needed.
This is the root address of the SFTP server you want to connect to. It can be a DNS name or an IP address. Do not prefix this with "sftp://", the adapter does that automatically.
The user name used to access this SFTP.
The password used to access this SFTP.
The port number used to access this SFTP. Default is 22.
The relative path from the root of the SFTP server to the folder you want to fetch files from.
This is the file mask that filenames found in the folder on the SFTP server will be matched against (e.g. "*.*", "Order*.xml", etc.).
Some SFTP servers only allow access to the folder the user is currently at. In such a case you can use this field to indicate the folder instead of the normal Folder field above. This field allows you to execute commands before fetching files. At present, only the "cd" (change directory) command is supported.
Some SFTP servers remember the last folder the user navigated to, and puts the user in that folder upon login. If that is the case, this field can be used to navigate back out again before logging off, so polling always starts from the root. It works the same as the Before Get field, so it takes a "cd" command.
Delete files after download
This field indicates whether files fetched from the server should be deleted from the server after being successfully saved to Link. Default value is True. If this is set to False, the same files will be imported into Link over and over again, since there is no record of which files have already been fetched. There are very few scenarios where it makes sense not to delete the files once they have been fetched (e.g. a product catalog that is only fetched once a week, and the same file needs to be fetched by multiple receivers).
[DataOwner name] - SFTP In - Proxy Settings
If the SFTP server in question is behind a proxy, these settings can be used to navigate to it.
The address of the proxy server.
The port number used to access the proxy server.
The user name used to access the proxy server.
The password used to access the proxy server.
The type of proxy server. The SFTP framework used supports the following types: Http, Socks4, Socks5.
[DataOwner name] - SFTP In - Private Key Settings
If the SFTP server in question uses certificate security, these settings can be used to register the private key used for the communication.
Use Private Key
Tells the adapter whether or not to use private key security.
With this field you can upload your private key file.
Private Key Passphrase
In this field you can set the passphrase used to access the private key.
