Eightwire enables you to write and read data with organisations who are using SFTP or FTP Servers without any change to their existing infrastructure and without them needing to have their own Eightwire Account.
The connector allows Delimited Text or Excel format - and SFTP or FTP protocols.
To connect an FTP or SFTP server, the following details are required in the Datastore:
Type — Choose FTP Delimited Text or FTP Excel Spreadsheet
Agent — Select an Agent (this Agent acts to call the FTP Server)
Protocol — Choose SFTP or FTP
Credentials — Supply the Server Name, Port, Username, Password, Private Key File Path, Passphrase, and Path
Option — Choose Source (Eightwire pulls from the FTP folder) or Destination (Eightwire pushes to the FTP folder)
Save the Datastore and ensure the Test Connection is successful.
Whether sending or receiving data, the Eightwire Agent initiates the transfer, the process cannot be initiated by the other party.
Data processed using this connector is transformed by Eightwire as usual - it can be loaded or extracted from any Datastore type.
