Functions and use cases

Access files from an SFTP or FTP server

As a developer of an integration workflow, I want to access files that reside on an SFTP or FTP server. The data will be processed further in the further course of the workflow. For example, this could be order data in EDIFACT format, which is to be converted to JSON and then passed on to the internal order incoming system.

Finding a file in the SFTP

After a file is found in the SFTP, the following happens: It moves the file to the directory (hidden).platform_processed. He pulls this out and uploads the file to the attachment store (steward). After the upload is complete, the READ URL of the file is used to generate a message. The next connector can simply read from the URL (in the attachment) to get the memory-efficient way to read/parse data. Please note that if multiple files are found, the SFTP connector generates one message per file.
