SFTP Download Integration Features
- Configuration is very similar to regular deployment actions. The only difference is that this time the
Source pathis on the remote server, and the
Destination pathis in the pipeline's filesystem
- Buddy supports passwords, SSH keys, and Buddy's SSH keys as a means of authentication. Passphrases are supported, too
- If several actions are connecting to the same server, use environment Variables to manage user & password credentials instead of providing fixed values in the inputs
- Once correct login details are provided, it is possible to browse the remote server and select the Source path from Buddy’s UI instead of typing it manually
- Available options: Overwrite, Recursive
- The action can be configured in YAML mode. See SFTP Download YAML parameters
- Buddy's SFTP Download API is supported
