Registering an SFTP Data Source

Before synchronizing data from an external SFTP server, you need to register the data source to configure the connection information of the SFTP.

This section shows the steps to register an SFTP data source in EnOS.


  1. In the EnOS Management Console, click Data Source Registration from the left navigation menu.

  2. Click Add Data Source and provide information for the following.

    • Data Source Type: Select SFTP.

    • Data Source Name: Enter a name for the data source. The maximum length is 50 characters and can be a combination of the following characters.
