About Transfer CFT Copilot UI

There are multiple user interfaces that you can use to mange Transfer CFT. The Transfer CFT graphical user interface, Copilot, is described in this sub-book. The UI itself features a server, which is called the Copilot server; you may find references to both names, UI and Copilot, in this documentation.


The Transfer CFT  user interface, or UI, remotely administers and monitors Transfer CFT activities and objects. The GUI commands include, but are not limited to, configuration, monitoring, and administering Transfer CFT. You can use the UI to:

  • Administer Transfer CFT
  • Configure parameters for application events and record the event data in a database
  • Retrieve event data from an internal datafile and display the data
  • Read event data from an internal datafile and respond

Monitoring commands

The Transfer CFT monitoring commands help users respond to application events in the interface. These commands include managing Transfer CFT log and catalog filters.

The GUI provides an extensive set of predefined filters for refining catalog and log displays. You can also create custom filters, archive, and print catalog and log contents.

Restricting Copilot user interface rights

You can manage the following user rights on the Copilot server.

  • Administration
  • Initial configuration
  • Ongoing configuration
  • Monitoring
  • Batch functions
  • PKI configuration
  • Filter creation
  • Transfer creation
  • Transfer management

To deactivate any of these rights:

  1. Access the Transfer CFT install directory.
  2. Locate the wwwroot directory.
  3. In the index.html file, edit the file to fit your system requirements.

If you have deactivated rights for a node in the user interface, the node is not displayed. If you have deactivated rights for a procedure, such as creating a transfer, an error message is displayed if you attempt to use that feature.

Administration tasks

Use the Administration menu to manage user access to the Transfer CFT monitoring and File management.

Configuration parameters

The GUI configuration parameters are located in the UCONF interface. You can customize Transfer CFT parameters such as the Transfer CFT listening port, port, scripts, and so on using the UCONF interface. Refer to the UCONF topic for additional information on setting Transfer CFT parameters.
