Transfer list

This section describes how to customize and manage a transfer list.

Overview

Transfer lists provide a way to view all transfers in a list format. Each day as you perform transfers, the transfer list records this activity, along with data that is associated with each transfer.

By default the transfer list is purged each day, though this value is customizable. Additionally, you can define retention periods, delete files once the list exceeds a certain size, purge the transfer list at certain times of the day, and so on.

Fields

The user interface indicates default values.

Indicates whether to force the transfer list file to synchronize when Transfer CFT processes write to this list.

Entry Retention
