MFT Connection

MFT (Managed File Transfer) on Connect iPaaS uses SFTP Basic authorization (Username and Password) and RSA Key authorization (Username and RSA Key). By connecting to your SFTP file system, RoboMQ will utilize the account you provide to establish the SFTP connection. RoboMQ needs the following permissions on your SFTP account to provide a seamless integration experience:

Object Permission
Directory Read & Write Permission
File Read & Write Permission

We at RoboMQ pay utmost attention to keep your account secure. See our Security and Privacy Policy to learn more about how RoboMQ handles your account access.
