Issue/Introduction

A new requirement from SFTP server requires to enforce both types of authentication "password" and "public key" while logging to the SFTP server.

Dollar Universe Manager for FTP supports only either of these 2 methods of authentication, but not both at the same time.

Cause

By design: Double authentication (private+public key) and additional password in SFTP Uprocs is not supported yet by Dollar Universe Manager for File Transfer.

An idea has been opened in the community to add this feature in the product, if you are interested on this Enhancement, please vote for it:

Environment

Release : 6.x

Component : Dollar Universe

Area: FTP Uprocs

Resolution

Workaround:

Use a third-party ftp client supporting the double authentication in batch mode to perform the sftp transfer such as psftp and launch it via a standard (non ftp) Uproc

Example of a command with psftp:

psftp -P sftp_port -batch -bc -b "sftpscript.txt" -i "key.ppk" -pw password  [email protected]

 

The same can be accomplished with a Powershell script or other sftp third-party tools.
