Server-to-Server File Transfer without touchdown

File Transfer Schema

Configuration Example

A profile definition for Server-to-Server File Transfer, from SFTP to FTP:

 [ftp_server_2_server_with_polling]
 ssh_auth_method=password
 
 source_user            = kb
 source_password        = *****
 source_ssh_auth_method = password
 source_host            = wilma.sos
 source_protocol        = sftp
 source_port            = 22
 
 target_user            = test
 target_password        = *****
 target_host            = 8of9.sos
 target_protocol        = ftp
 target_port            = 21
 
 file_spec              = ^.*\.txt$
 operation              = copy

  poll_interval         = 60
  poll_minfiles         = 1
  poll_timeout          = 0
 
 log_filename=${TEMP}/sosftphistory.log

In this example all files with the file name extension .txt should be transferred from the server wilma via SFTP to the server 8of9 by FTP. YADE will do the polling on the source server for specific files.

To start this with the command line client one must type:

 jade.sh -settings=name_of_settings_file -profile=ftp_server_2_server_with_polling

To make the profile reusable and more readable it is possible to organize profiles by fragments like this:

 [wilma_as_source]
 ssh_auth_method=password
 
 source_user            = kb
 source_password        = *****
 source_ssh_auth_method = password
 source_host            = wilma.sos
 source_protocol        = sftp
 source_port            = 22

 [8of9_as_target]
 target_user     = test
 target_password = *****
 target_host     = 8of9.sos
 target_protocol = ftp
 target_port     = 21

 [globals]
 log_filename    = ${TEMP}/sosftphistory.log

 [globals_polling]
  poll_interval  = 60
  poll_minfiles  = 1
  poll_timeout   = 0

The profile fragments for wilma as source and 8of9 as target are defined once. They could be used as many times as needed. There is a globals profile as well.

Now we will specify the profile using fragments:

 [ftp_server_2_server_with_polling]
 include        = globals , globals_polling
 source_include = wilma_as_source
 target_include = 8of9_as_target
 operation      = move
 file_spec      = ^.*\.txt$
   
 [ftp_more]
 include        = wilma_as_source,8of9_as_target
 operation      = move
 file_spec      = ^.*\.(txt|pdf|dat)$
 source_folder  = /outbound/daily
 target_folder  = /inbound/transfer

The include parameter will include the named profile snippets in the order they are defined. The globals profile is included automatically, no need to specifiy it in an include parameter.
The profiles have to be defined in the same settings file.
