Upload CSV or JSON files using SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) to a destination. To provide the information SnapLogic® AutoSync needs to connect to SFTP, supply new credentials in the wizard or select saved credentials that were created in the IIP or the wizard. The create credentials page explains how to create credentials in the AutoSync wizard.

Supported Account types

The IIP provides multiple Account types for most endpoints and not all types are compatible with AutoSync. The following IIP Account types are compatible with AutoSync:

  • Basic Auth (Binary)
  • SSH Auth (Binary)
  • Two-Factor Auth (Binary)

Known limitations

  • For the SFTP endpoint, Binary Two-factor Auth Accounts created in the IIP can fail with a "File not found" error.

Connection configuration

SFTP properties include the following:

  • Account Properties
    • Credential label: A unique, meaningful name such as SFTP-Sales-Admin. If a configuration with the same name exists, AutoSync displays an Asset conflict error message.
    • Username: A username for an account with the correct permissions for AutoSync to load and synchronize data.
    • Password: The password for the account. Multiple retries with an invalid password can cause your account to be locked.
    • Share: (Optional) Select a user group to share this configuration with. Environment admins (formerly Org admins) create user groups to share credentials. If you are a member of a user group, you can select it from the dropdown. You can also select the global shared folder, which shares the credentials with everyone in your Org.
  • Validate and Save: After saving and validating, AutoSync adds the configuration to the list of saved credentials.
  • File type: Select your file type, either CSV or JSON.
  • Directory Path: Enter the directory path of your file.
  • Select tables to synchronize: After configuring a destination, choose tables to synchronize. AutoSync populates the list from your SFTP account.
