Hello Folks,

What are the steps required for setting up an FTP Server in campaign? Also i want to export an file to the given directory. Can it be done using a workflow like File Transfer activity or do we need to write a JavaScript functionality?

Hi SriBhargav,

First you need to create an external account with the server details with FTP type. If it is success then, you can use File transfer activity in the workflow and you can export or import the files from the FTP server.

Hope it helps you .

Thanks,

Hi Sri Bhargav,

Yes. Server is a host name. Account is username, Password is password of FTP Server and Port is 21 default for FTP.

In the workflow, while using the File Transfer activity, you need to select this FTP server and provide the path.

Hi Raviteja,

Thanks for your input!

In the External Account, there are 4 properties: Server (Is it a host name), Account (Username), Password (Password of FTP Server) and Port (What will be the port number here)

Could you please provide more info on this?
