The FTP connector for Jitterbit Harmony Cloud Studio provides an interface for entering user-provided input such as a host and port to create an FTP connection. That connection provides the foundation to configure associated FTP connector activities that interact with the connection. Together, a specific FTP connection and its activities are referred to as a FTP endpoint.
This connector is used to first configure an FTP connection, establishing access to an FTP server, and then used to configure one or more FTP activities associated with that connection as a source or target within an operation or script:
Read: Reads data from an FTP endpoint and is intended to be used as a source in an operation or called in a script.
Write: Writes data to an FTP endpoint and is intended to be used as a target in an operation or called in a script.
Accessing the Connector
The FTP connector is accessed from the Connectivity tab of the design component palette by using the Show dropdown to filter on Connectors.
Once a connection is configured, activities associated with the endpoint are available by using the Show dropdown to filter on Endpoints and then clicking the FTP connection block:
Connecting to SFTP with SSH Keys
SSH client keys are used to authenticate Jitterbit Harmony with external resources such as SFTP servers.
For detailed information on using SSH client keys specifically for SFTP connections, and how to convert keys to an appropriate format for Harmony Private Agents, see Connecting to SFTP with SSH Keys.
