Hello Forum,

I'm facing a situation where a customer requests us to deliver a file to their FTP server using explicit FTP over TLS. However, while exploring the available properties in the Pipeline output component, I couldn't find an option to specify this behavior. I also couldn't find a solution using XQuery. Am I overlooking something, or should I advise the customer to switch to the more secure SFTP protocol?

Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you.

See XML Pipeline Server’ s User guide chapter “FTP Operations”.

Here an example

declare namespace xps_ftp = "ddtekjava:com.ivitechnologies.pipeline.ext.net.FTP";

declare function xps_ftp:sendFile($element as element(), $uriLocalFile as xs:string, $targetPath as xs:string) as xs:boolean external;
declare function xps_ftp:sendString($element as element(), $data as xs:string, $targetPath as xs:string) as xs:boolean external;

declare variable $session := <root host='' port='21' path='/' user='ftp' password='ftp' ftps_protocol="TLS"/>;
declare variable $file_url := resolve-uri("myfile.xml", fn:static-base-uri());
declare variable $target_file := "myfile.xml";

xps_sftp:sendFile($session, $file_url, $target_file)

or you can send a string

xps_sftp:sendString($session, "some nice data", $target_file)

You will need the following jars in your Stylus Studio project’s classpath to test the query:
