Use this action to save a file to a secure FTP folder.
Saving a file to an SFTP folder is a common method for creating an automated integration between Catalytic and another application. For example, Catalytic can create and save an XML or JSON file from a Web API action to an SFTP site where another application can download or use the data.
This action requires a preconfigured SFTP integration. For more information on integrating Catalytic with other systems, please refer to the Integrations section of our help documentation.
There are many types of SFTPs, both web-based & on-prem and some will require a dedicated IP. If needed and if IT allows, we can authenticate with a username and strong password.
- Select your team’s SFTP integration from the list.
- Specify the file to upload, Use a field reference to a file uploaded in a prior task or instance.
- The folder path for the folder to save the file in.
- When entering a folder name, enter a / before it. For example, if the full folder path is ftp://example.exampleftp.com/folder, enter: /folder
- The name of the field that will contain a url to the uploaded file.
This action will generate the URL to the newly uploaded file in the field defined in Output field name.
- The url of the uploaded file. The field name will be the output field name defined during configuration.
If something’s not working as expected, or you’re looking for suggestions, check through the options below.
In some cases, SFTP triggers and actions will fail depending on the encryption algorithms your SFTP server supports. Your SFTP server and Catalytic must support the same encryption algorithms.
For a list of supported algorithms, see Supported SFTP Encryption Algorithms
