SFTP File Automation Options

As part of our continual push to make Dsco more secure, please note that as of March 31, 2017, 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:

  • /in

This is where you place files that need to be imported into Dsco if you have selected "Dsco FTP" within the job guide.

  • /in/processing

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.

  • /in/archive

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.

  • /out

This is where the Dsco platform places files exported from the Dsco platform, if you have selected the "Dsco FTP" option within the job guide.

  • /out/archive

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.

  • /misc

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.
