Transfer site

A transfer site is a location such as a local folder or protocol server used when sending or receiving files during a server-initiated transfer. Transfer sites are specified and managed on a per-account basis.

When defining a transfer site as part of an account, you need to provide the information required for connecting to the site, authenticating (when applicable) the login and sending and/or receiving files. The selected transfer protocol dictates what information is required to define the transfer site.

In general, a site is used for AS2 transfers and server-initiated transfers. In the case of a server-initiated transfer, a file is either uploaded to the site when a subscription processes an uploaded file or downloaded from the site using a schedule in a subscription.

An account can have zero or more transfer sites. An account can subscribe to zero or more applications, and an application can be triggered when a file is transferred using a site.
