SFTP Send Endpoint Settings

SFTP send endpoint settings configure where to send messages in the following contexts:

  • Send to partners

    Target endpoint in an outbound message flow to which translated B2B EDI messages are sent to partners either directly or via a 3rd party connection

  • Target at host

    Target endpoint in an inbound message flow to which translated application JSON and XML messages are sent to the backend systems

A host, partner, or 3rd party connection can own FTP send endpoints.
