We’ve added inbound and outbound Orderful-hosted SFTP Communication Channels to the Communication Channels page.
For now, only Orderful-hosted SFTP can be created. That means Orderful is creating, hosting and managing the SFTP server.
Currently Orderful-hosted SFTP Communication Channels have the following restrictions:
- Only X12 data can be sent and received
- Username and password is the only available authentication method
- Only the SFTP protocol is supported.
After you create an SFTP communication channel, the SFTP server configuration details, credentials, upload and download requirements are automatically generated and available through Orderful.
For instructions on how to set-up an inbound Orderful-hosted SFTP Communication Channel see here: https://docs.orderful.com/docs/set-up-org-follower#inbound-ftp-and-sftp
For instructions on how to set-up an outbound Orderful-hosted SFTP Communication Channel see here: https://docs.orderful.com/docs/set-up-org-follower#outbound-ftpsftp
If you want to create a self-hosted FTP/SFTP Communication Channel, you’ll still need to contact our support team.
