Let’s build and execute the “sftpSendFileDef” example.          

  • Create a new definition called “sftpSendFileDef” 
  • Select the definition and click the “design” button
  • Drag a “sftpSendFile” step from the toolbox
  • Connect the dots between the start and “sftpSendFile” step
  • Click on the “sftpSendFile” step to configure its “Settings” properties. Select “SFTP” connection string from the dropdown list. Provide a local path of the source file to be uploaded. Provide a relative path to store the file to be saved on the server.  
  • Click on the “sftpSendFile” step to configure its “Advanced” properties. Provide a variable/global reference to store the relative file path.
  • The “Logging” setting configuration is necessary for documentation and also measure the workflow progress and the percent complete. This is acheived by configuring the step state and percent fields individually as shown in the images below. Configure the “Logging” using the following properties.
  • Save the process definition, create a new process instance and execute. Render the process instance. Click on the process step to view the properties. The step should send or upload the file to the SFTP server.
