SFTP Server Enablement
This feature will enable to the Enterprise+ clients to use SFTP Server hosted by Enterprise+. Until this release, the SFTP was only possible using external servers. To learn how to set up your SFTP integration, please see this article.
Now, the server will be hosted by Genius SIS (Enterprise+) and the users will be managed by the clients.
Contact your Genius representative to learn how to implement this feature in your instance.
The feature will be able to be activated just by the Genius SIS Staff, therefore, a new user type was created with the specific role (GENIUS_STAFF) will have access to a new page to have more autonomy over the features in Enterprise+.
- The ADMIN role will not be able to see this page.
The page is the Feature Flag under the Administration Tab, Staff Admin section.
To enable/disabled you just need to change the feature “SFTPHostServer” to Yes/No.
Yes: The feature will be enabled, and users with access to the SFTP Server under the administration tab will be possible to create users to access the SFTP Folder.
No: The feature will be disabled. If you are turning off the feature after created users to connect to the SFTP Folder, all users created will be deleted removing their access.
