Transfer sites

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. Supported protocol servers include Amazon S3, AS2, Connect:Direct, Folder Monitor, FTP(S), Generic-HTTP(S), HTTP(S), PeSIT, SharePoint, SMB, SSH (SFTP), and System to Human. 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 the login and sending or receiving files. The transfer protocol you select dictates what information 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.
