Automation Workshop includes the Connect to SFTP Action that establishes a connection between a local machine and a remote Linux/Unix/Windows SFTP server for automated file transferring · See FTP automation highlights.
The SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) connection is then used to monitor for file or folder changes or to perform Cloud and FTP Actions that include options to upload, download, synchronize, list, move, rename, delete and create files and directories.
Features & highlights
- Securely connect to any regular SFTP server, and execute remote commands on the server.
