Event states

An event state specifies the current state of a file transfer. You choose the information SecureTransport sends to Sentinel by selecting the event states to report. For details, see Configure SecureTransport to send events to Axway Sentinel.

SecureTransport uses three pre-defined Sentinel Tracked Objects to report events:

  • XFBTransfer – to report states that occur during file transfers.
  • XFB ST Info – to report general additional info.
  • ST_VAS (Value-Added Services) – to report states that occur during process other than file transfers.
  • Heartbeat – to indicate to Sentinel that SecureTransport is running and connected.

Every event in the same group about one file transfer is identified using the same cycle ID. Sentinel uses the cycle ID to associate the event information in its display.

The following table describes the available event states:

Event state Description
ACKED† SecureTransport has sent an acknowledgment for a transfer.
AVAILABLE (ST_VAS) SecureTransport application has completed successfully.
AVAILABLE (XFBTransfer)*† SecureTransport has published a file in a target folder using Publish To Account step.
CANCELED*† An application, agent, or user has canceled a file transfer.
DECRYPTED SecureTransport has performed a successful PGP decryption.
DECRYPTING SecureTransport is starting to decrypt a file.
DELETED A client, post-processing action (PPA), or post client download action has deleted a file.
ENCRYPTED SecureTransport has performed a successful PGP encryption.
ENCRYPTING SecureTransport is starting to encrypt a file.
ENDED_TO_ACK† SecureTransport has received an acknowledgment for a transfer.
ERROR An error has occurred during file deletion, renaming, transformation, or routing.
FAILED*† An error has occurred during a file transfer, Advanced Routing execution, or while an agent was running.
FORWARDED A routing application (such as Standard Router) has completed successfully.
FORWARDING SecureTransport is starting a routing application (such as Standard Router).
INTERRUPTED† A remote PeSIT server paused a transfer it initiated.
POST_PROC/ICAP_DENIED Access to the file is denied.
POST_PROC/ICAP_SCANNED The scanning of the file has successfully finished.
POST_PROC/ICAP_SCANNING The scanning of the file has started.
POST_PROC/ROUTED† An Advanced Routing application has successfully completed.
POST_PROC/ROUTING† SecureTransport is starting an Advanced Routing application.
PRESERVED The original file was not deleted after an decryption or encryption.
RECEIVED*† SecureTransport has successfully received a file by server-initiated pull or client-initiated push.
RECEIVING† SecureTransport is starting to receive a file by server-initiated pull or client-initiated push.
RENAMED A client action, or a post-transmission action (PTA), or post-processing action has renamed a file.
ROUTED† As the intermediate partner in a routed PeSIT transfer, SecureTransport has sent a file to the routing destination.
SENDING† SecureTransport is starting to send a file by server-initiated push or client-initiated pull.
SENT*† SecureTransport has successfully sent a file by server-initiated push or client-initiated pull.
SUBMITTED† SecureTransport has sent a wild card pattern for a server-initiated pull.
TO_EXECUTE† SecureTransport is ready to start a server-initiated transfer.

* Event state that is always monitored by Sentinel.

† Event state reported using the XFBTransfer Tracked Object and selected by default to be sent to Sentinel. The other event states are reported using ST_VAS.

The following event states are in-process states: DECRYPTING, ENCRYPTING, FORWARDING, POST_PROC/ICAP_SCANNING, POST_PROC/ROUTING, RECEIVING, SENDING, and TO_EXECUTE. All other event states are processed states that report the successful or unsuccessful completion of processing.

Note Added data transformations and other SecureTransport customizations can add additional event states to be sent to Sentinel.
