SFTP Download File



Use the SFTP Download File action to download a single file from the SFTP server.




Remote File


Enter the name of the file on the remote server that you want to transfer.  Make sure the full path is included (specified from the user's home directory) as the SFTP protocol doesn't have the concept of a "current directory" like FTP does. This action only supports transferring a single file.  To transfer multiple files use SFTP Download Files.


Local File or Directory


Specify either a local filename (including path) or a local directory.  If specifying the local filename, then the file will be transferred and renamed to this new name.


Download Mode


Select what should be done if a file already exists on the local machine with the same name.  Select either: Overwrite, Skip, Append, or Resume.
