SFTP File Automation Options
As part of our continual push to make Dsco more secure, please note that beginning in 2018, Dsco will no longer support the use of FTP connections. Go here for more information on that change.
An SFTP account is included with every Dsco account. Several folders exist in every account to allow for easy upload and download of files associated with automated jobs. The following folders are available with their associated uses:
This is where you place files that need to be imported into Dsco if you have selected "Dsco SFTP" within the job guide.
This is where the Dsco platform will place files that are currently being processed. Once the files are processed, they will be moved to the "/in/archive" folder.
This is where the Dsco platform will move files once we process a file found in the "/in folder." The Dsco platform provides you access to the files in "/in/archive" folder for two months.
This is where the Dsco platform places files exported from the Dsco platform, if you have selected the "Dsco SFTP" option within the job guide.
This is where the Dsco platform moves files once you download a file found in the "/out" folder. Our platform provides you access to the files in "/out/archive" for two months.
Used for temporarily storing files. No automation is used with this folder.
Dsco also supports the use of external SFTP servers for all incoming and outgoing operations. Furthermore, if a job is configured as an import, Dsco supports HTTP and HTTPS locations.
