Before you can configure a session to use FTP, you must create an FTPconnection object in the Workflow Manager. The Integration Service uses theFTP connection attributes to connect to the FTP server.After you create an FTP connection in the Workflow Manager, you can configurea session to use FTP. To use a secure connection, select an FTP connectionobject configured for SFTP. Use any session with flat file or XML sources or targets. To configure the session, complete the following tasks for each sourceand target that requires an FTP connection:Select an FTP connection.Configure source file properties.Configure target file properties.To stage the source or target file on the Integration Service machine, edit theFTP connection in the session properties to configure the directory and file namefor the staged file.
Configuring SFTP in a Session
To run a session using an FTP connection for an SFTP server that requirespublic key authentication, the public key and private key files must be accessibleon nodes where the session will run.If the Integration Service is configured to run on primary and backup nodes,make the key files accessible on each node configured to run the IntegrationService process.If the Integration Service is configured to run on a grid, make the key filesaccessible on each node configured to run on the grid. If you cannot put the fileson each node in the grid, create a resource in the domain and assign it to eachnode where you put the files. When you create a session, configure it to use theresource.For example, create a custom resource called SFTP. When you create asession, you can require the session to use the SFTP resource. The LoadBalancer will only dispatch the session to nodes where the key files areaccessible.
Selecting an FTP Connection
To configure a session to use FTP, select the connection type and theconnection object. Select an FTP connection object for each source and targetthat will use the FTP connection. To use SFTP, select an FTP connection objectthat is configured for SFTP. You configure connection options in the Connectionssettings on the Mapping tab.To select an FTP connection for a source or target instance:
