Before you can configure a session to use FTP, you must create an FTP connection object in the Workflow Manager. The Integration Service uses the FTP connection attributes to connect to the FTP server.
After you create an FTP connection in the Workflow Manager, you can configure a session to use FTP. To use a secure connection, select an FTP connection object configured for SFTP. Use any session with flat file or XML sources or targets.
To configure the session, complete the following tasks for each source and 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 the FTP connection in the session properties to configure the directory and file name for the staged file.
