Hi all, 

 

i need to connect my AEP sandbox to an external service with an SFTP connection. 

Where should i generate the public and private keys for the security? is there an AEP functionality to handle this credentials?

@nico9 You can use tools like OpenSSH Client to generate the SFTP public and private keys. Once it's done, you can use to create a SFTP connection using SSH public key. Here is the AEP documentation by which you can generate the keys:

Once the keys are generated, refer to the below documenation to create a SFTP source connection with AEP.

Thank you Avinash so there is no option to generate the key directly into AEP system, right?

@nico9 There is no option to generate the keys in AEP. You would have to use tools like OpenSSH client to generate the keys outside of AEP.
