    Hi,

    I would like to get/post a file from sftp server, so is there any object available from blue prism? or any best method.

    Thanks Pavani

    Hi Pavani, I don't know if this is the best way but this blog post I wrote should give you some ideas to explore, https://rpasuccess.com/blog/2019/8/5/how-to-use-windows-built-in-ftp-with-blue-prism/

    In the post I highlight how you can use these built-in VBO's to configure a command line ftp call.
    • Utility - File Management VBO - this is an excellent workhorse of utilities, providing actions to handle all sorts of local file and directory management.
    • Utility - Environment VBO - provides utilities actions for interacting with the environment - read screen resolution, determine OS type, etc.
    But there are also a couple of Digital Exchange Assets available on the DX store that might be of interest. https://digitalexchange.blueprism.com/dx/search?keyword=FTP
    Let us know what you come up with.
    Thanks,
    Ed

    I'd make a simple VBO with SSH.NET library. MIT licensed.
    Upload seems to be about 10 lines of code.
    You would have to install something on the worker either way.
