How To

SFTP for Linux

Use these instructions if you want to upload or download inventory files to ChannelAdvisor using Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) with a password challenge via Linux.

 

Setting up SFTP in ChannelAdvisor


SFTP access is set on the Edit User page. The user will be able to access any Profile to which they have access within their Client. Visit the  Edit User page ( My Account > Manage Users ).

Create a new user or update an existing user with SFTP login information as follows:

  • SFTP Username: Must be at least 8 characters in length, and contain only alphabetic characters or numeric digits.
  • SFTP Password: Must be at least 8 characters in length, contain at least one capitalized alphabetic and one non-alphabetic character.

 

Connecting to the SFTP server with bash


Once you have configured SFTP as shown above, you can use the SFTP bash command to transmit files.

First, open a bash window as shown below, and initiate an SFTP connection:

If this is the first time you are connecting to the SFTP server from your computer, you will be prompted to accept our server's key. Answer "yes" to the prompt.

Next, you will be prompted to enter your password.  Once you enter your password successfully, you can list the directory contents (command "ls"). You will see a list of Profile IDs to which the user has been provisioned access.

Within the Profile directories, you will find subdirectories organized by feature. For more information about working with Inventory files, see topic Getting Started with Inventory .
