File Connection in Replicate with secure FTP

I have been attempting to set up file-type endpoint connections for target and source that will use secure FTP protocol.  Attunity Support told me that this could be coded in the "File preprocessing command" text box for sources.  For targets, there are three parameters that can be entered for "Post-process":

Post-process files:
- Command name
- Working directory
Parameters
 

That this be "post-process" leads me to question whether it could work, since credentials would need to be supplied up-front, I would think.

I successfully use the credentials and host information within Filezilla, but I want to automate this...

In any case, does Replicate have SFTP capabilities built-in?  Are there any examples of how to do this?  The Help file has none.

Hello Rene,

 

Qlik has RMFT or R1 that might be of interest to you:

https://www.qlik.com/us/products/qlik-repliweb

https://www.qlik.com/us/products/qlik-managed-file-transfer

 

If you are on linux you can create a script with ​inotifywait -m to monitor a directory and execute an sftp transfer command.

 

Hope that helps

 

Thank you,

Hi Ted,

Thanks for your response.  Can you compare and contrast for me Replicate, vis-à-vis Repliweb, vis-à-vis Managed File Transfer?

Hi Ted,

Thanks, I'll look into that.
