objects in
file ingestion
tasks, you configure properties specific to
FTP
.
Create an
Advanced FTP V2 connection
and use the connection as a source or as a target in
file ingestion
tasks.
When you create an
Advanced FTP V2 connection
, you specify the runtime environment that contains the Secure Agent. Create an
Advanced FTP V2 connection
to specify the location of
FTP
sources or targets that you want to include in a
file ingestion
task.
When you run a file ingestion task, the Secure Agent transfers files to or from an
FTP server
, based on the task and the
Advanced FTP V2 connection
configuration. The Secure Agent connects and reads files from and writes files to the
FTP server
through a TCP/IP network.
When you use an

file ingestion
task, you can schedule the task to receive notifications from a file listener.

Example

You work for an organization that stores audit trail logs in an on-premises
FTP server
. You need to move data from the on-premises
FTP
site to an affordable cloud-based environment. Create a
file ingestion
task to read all the audit trail logs from the
FTP server
and write them to an Amazon S3 target.
