How to Send Data to Daasity using the Daasity SFTP Server

This article explains how to set up Transmit software (recommended by Daasity) that will enable you to send files to Daasity via SFTP.

Setting up the SFTP will take 2 steps:

These instructions assume the user has already been set up in the Daasity SFTP server.  This means:

  • the merchant user has completed the instructions to generate an SSH key, simple docs on setting up SSH and DB connection here
  • the merchant user has submitted the public key, of the SSH key pair to Daasity
  • Daasity DevOps team has created the SFTP user with the supplied SSH public key
  • Daasity team has sent the SFTP user credential and SFTP folder to the merchant user
    • Note the convention for the folder is the merchant account id. e.g. daasity-sftp/1f1ff7dc-dd0c-42a6-82ea-d166e4565753
