Applications

This section introduces Axway SecureTransport applications and describes how to use the Applications menu features of the SecureTransport Administration Tool.

Application overview

In SecureTransport, applications are sets of workflow you can create to perform file processing, including the following:

  • Transform data
  • Schedule file transfers
  • Route files
  • Monitor shared folder monitoring across user accounts
  • Trigger sequential sets of actions

An application is defined as an instance of a set of workflow called an application type. Once you have defined an application, you create a connection between an application and one or more accounts. Such a connection is defined through a subscription.

SecureTransport ships with the following built-in application types:

  • Account Maintenance – Automatically deletes, disables, or purges accounts based on their inactivity or age. You can configure account maintenance schedule and emails notifications, as well as email alerts for password and certificate expiration.
  • See Create an Account Maintenance application.
  • Advanced Routing –Provides options to create complex automated flows for file transformations, routing and transfers between different participants, partner systems, and applications.
  • See Advanced Routing.
  • Archive Maintenance – Automatically deletes archived files based on a schedule you define.
  • See Create an Archive Maintenance application.
  • Audit Log Maintenance – Automatically deletes Audit log records that are older than a specified number of days or months (6 months by default). You can schedule how often to run this application and configure it to optionally export these records prior to deletion.
