FTP / SFTP / FTPS Path

Use this path to retrieve the file from an FTP server (FTP, SFTP or FTPS). The parameters required to configure this path are the URL and credentials of the server.

By default, the data sources use Binary transfer mode. To change it to ASCCI transfer mode, add ;type=A to the URL.

Examples:

  1. URL to obtain the file “employee.csv” from an FTP server:

    ftp://ftp.example.com/pub/employee.csv
    
  2. URL to an SFTP server:

    sftp://example.com/home/joe/employee.csv
    
  3. URL to an FTP server with ASCII transfer mode enabled:

    ftp://example.com/pub/employee.csv;type=A
    
  4. URL to an FTP server with ASCII transfer mode enabled retrieving all the files located at pub folder:

    ftp://example.com/pub/;type=A
