Configuring the Communication Channels with the SFTP AdapterLocate this document in the navigation structure

Prerequisites

  • You have installed the secure connectivity add-on and imported content from the ES Repository. For more information, see the Installation Guide.

  • You have logged on to the Integration Directory in the SAP NetWeaver Process Integration environment.

  • You have created business component and communication channels.

  • You have generated and stored your private keys in the NetWeaver Administrator keystore.

  • You have received and stored a partner's public keys in the NetWeaver Administrator keystore.

Context

You configure communication channels with the Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) adapter to enable exchange of file content in binary format between the SFTP server and the recipient system through the Integration Server or the messaging system.

The SFTP adapter is an add-on that runs on the SAP NetWeaver Process Integration adapter framework. It is a client application that connects to the SFTP server for exchanging sensitive business data between trading partners through a secured channel over the network. The SFTP adapter encrypts the business data with Secure Shell (SSH) protocol before transmission. At the destination, the SFTP adapter decrypts and restores the original message based on the SSH protocol.

Procedure

  1. Configure the sender channel with the SFTP adapter to retrieve file content from the SFTP server to the Integration Server or Messaging System.

    For more information, see Configuring the SFTP Sender Channel.

  2. Configure the receiver channel with the SFTP adapter to send file content from the Integration Server or Messaging System to the recipient.

    For more information, see Configuring the SFTP Receiver Channel.

  3. Define the operating system commands for message processing that are to be executed by the SFTP adapter.
