SFTP Get Default Directory
The SFTP Get Default Directory activity retrieves the name of the current remote directory. The default remote directory is operating system-dependent and determined by the remote SFTP server. On UNIX systems, the default remote directory is usually the home directory of the user account that is used to establish an SFTP connection. The current remote directory may be different from the default directory. When SFTP Change Default Directory activity is used to change the default directory in the same session, it returns the currently set remote directory path.
The General tab has the following fields.
|Field||Literal Value/Module Property||Description|
|Name||No||The name to be displayed as the label for the activity in the process.|
The path to the shared configuration resource containing the user information such as Host, Port, and User Name.
For configuration details, refer to SFTP Connection.
|Quit (post-command)||No||When this check box is selected, it specifies that the SFTP Connection should be closed after completing this command.
If this check box is not selected, the SFTP Connection remains open so that all SFTP activities specifying the same SFTP Connection, (that is, the same host, port, and username) share the existing SFTP session until the connection is closed.
The following is the input for the activity.
|Host||string||The name or IP of the SFTP server. This overrides the value specified in the SFTP Connection shared resource.|
|Port||integer||The port number for incoming SFTP requests on the SFTP server. This overrides the value specified in the SFTP Connection shared resource.|
|Username||string||The username for logging into the SFTP server. This overrides the value specified in the SFTP Connection shared resource.|
|Password||password||The password for logging into the SFTP server. This overrides the value specified in the SFTP Connection shared resource.|
|Timeout||integer|| The amount of time to wait for the SFTP server to respond. This timeout is used when the SFTP server places the SFTP connection used by this activity into a waiting state.
This overrides the value specified in the SFTP Connection shared resource.
The output for the activity is the following.
