Input File from SFTP

Hi,

How could I setup an input file to pull from an sftp directory?

Thanks,

Hi @johnnykoung 

 

I recommend you to check this article:

PS: It's supposed to work the same way for SFTP.

 

Cheers,

I tried this out, and it works, but I was wondering if there was a way that I could directly read the file from the SFTP, rather than download the file and then read it.

I think due to authentication this is not possible.

Got it, thank you!
