    You could launch command prompt from Blueprism process. Install WinSCP on the robot VDI and pass a script to perform operations from your SFTP location.

    The following link has more details about how to script SFTP operations.

    Thanks, Ganeshraj..i am using the python script which is easier than this process, so I am asking the BP whether they have any integration or not? Thanks

    Hi Pavani,

    I'm not aware of an existing SFTP integration. At least there aren't any on the DX. I have kicked around the idea of building one on top of WinSCP. Just haven't had the time.

    Way ahead of you on that. I'm attaching a file - rename the extension from .txt to .bprelease.

    This is built off of WinSCP and Renci SSHNet. The VBO expects the following files to reside within c:\bp (A general-use directory we have on our bots, you can change this as-needed):

    Looking back on this, I'm recalling that this was abandoned mid-development. Everything should work fine, save for the rsa 2048 stages. Those have most of the groundwork done, and just need the host key to be integrated.

    It looks like to get the host key to work, you'll need to add the following to the sessionOptions section of the code stages
    .SshHostKeyFingerprint = "ssh-rsa "+hostKey

    I was developing a VBO solution for file transfer using winscp.dll and SFTP protocol and I am looking at this solution you shared. Excellent  @Ami Barrett Good Job!!
