User interfaces

Transfer CFT describes the following user interfaces in this section:

  • CFTUTIL command line interface: provides a means to manually enter lines of commands to manage processes
  • Central Governance: is an optional Axway user interface that provides a set of governance services, pending your license key
  • As of Transfer CFT 3.3.1, the Transfer CFT graphical user interface is a web browser user interface. You can use this interface to track and manage transfers, and consult the Transfer CFT log.
  • The former Transfer CFT UI, Copilot UI, provides frames, menus and icons you can use to manage the processes

See also the Command guide and syntax, which is a summary of all commands with their syntax and default values.
