When to use this connector
Use this connector to create Flows that work with files in FTPS.
Create a Connection
Step 1. In the
Connections window, click
+, and select
Step 2. Select
Step 3. Enter Connection parameters.
URL: the hostname and optional port of the FTPS server.
The URL must start with
Directory: the actual directory with files. This parameter is optional.
Files: the actual file name or a wildcard file name, for example,
Implicit FTPS: implicit FTPS assumes
SSLmode right from the start and listens on TCP port 990.
Passive Mode: must be selected if Etlworks Integrator is running behind a firewall (always select this when using Etlworks Integrator in a cloud).
Keystore File: a name of the keystore file which contains
SSLcertificate. This parameter is optional.
Keystore Password: an optional keystore password.
Keystore passwordis used together with keystore file.
Authentication Protocol: FTPS authentication protocol.
TLSis a default protocol.
Client Authentication Mode: enable to set client authentication mode. This option is enabled by default.
Need Client Authentication: enable to enforce client authentication mode. This option is disabled by default.
Enable Session Creation: enable the creation of the SSL session. This option is enabled by default.
Execute PBSZ and PROT commands After Login:
PROTcommands are used to enforce the SSL encrypted communication with the FTP server. This option is enabled by default.
Add Suffix When Creating Files in Transformation: you can select one of the predefined suffixes for the files created using this Connection. For example, if you select
uuidas a suffix and the original filename is
dest.csv, Etlworks Integrator will create files with the name
dest_uuid.csv, where uuid is a globally unique identifier such as
This parameter works only when the file is created using source-to-destination-transformation. Read how to add a suffix to the files created when copying, moving, renaming, and zipping files.
Enable Wildcard File Name: if there are multiple source files in a folder, you can specify an algorithm that will be used to select the next source file to process. For example, if
Filesis set to
oldestis selected, Etlworks Integrator will always select the oldest file in the folder which matches the wildcard
Override Wildcard File Name set for Connection: if
Wildcard File Namesare allowed,
Override Wildcard File Name set for Connectionis enabled, and the file name entered in the
FROMfield of the transformation is a wildcard file name, the system will override the file name entered at the Connection level. Otherwise, the default behavior is to use the wildcard file name entered when the Connection was configured.
When FTPS Connection is used as a source (
FROM) in the source-to-destination transformation, it is possible to configure the automatic decryption of the encrypted source files using the PGP algorithm and private key uploaded to the secure key storage.
If the private key is available, all source files processed by the transformation will be automatically decrypted using the PGP algorithm and given key. Note that the private key requires a password.
