Connect & Ingest data from / into an SFTP connection

Sling CLI Setup

The following credentials keys are accepted:
  • host (required) -> The hostname / ip of the machine
  • user (required) -> The username to access the machine
  • port (optional. Default is 22)
  • password (optional) -> The password to access the machine

Here is an example of setting a connection named MY_SFTP. We must provide the type=sftp property:
$ sling conns set MY_SFTP type=sftp host=<host> user=<user> password=<password> port=<port> private_key=<private_key>
# Or use url
$ sling conns set MY_SFTP url=sftp://myuser:[email protected]:22 private_key=<private_key>

Environment Variable

export MY_SFTP='{type=sftp, url="sftp://myuser:[email protected]:22", private_key=<private_key>'
