  • Setting up FTP Monitoring

We will have a detailed look at configuring FTP monitoring in BizTalk360. The scenarios for FTP (File Transfer Protocol) monitoring are:

  • FTP with password authentication
  • FTP with anonymous authentication (without username/password)
  • FTP with SSL (Secure Socket Layer protection) enabled
  • With explicit SSL
  • With implicit SSL
  • With a proxy server running. Our application can use default proxy settings which is given in “Settings -> Gateway/Proxy settings” or can the user can manually type in the details

FTP with password authentication

  • Log in to the BizTalk360 application
  • Click the 'Monitoring' tab in the navigation bar
  • Click the expand button in the 'Manage Mapping' section
  • Select the Alarm name (Manage Alarms) from the drop-down, which you would like to associate the FTP location for monitoring
  • Click 'File Locations' (File, FTP, SFTP) tab . You can see three tabs each containing port details of their respective adapters, which are File, FTP, and SFTP.
  • Click 'FTP' to monitor FTP locations

  • The port(s) (Send port or Receive port) created in the BizTalk admin console it will be displayed in a grid 
  • Click the particular row of the FTP location to open the FTP Details blade to enter the password for the FTP location
  • All file extensions (eg., CHPAPO*.txt, *.txt,  * . *, *outbound322*, PPI*, Tes*.*) and macros pattern are supported in FTP monitoring by making the file mask field editable
  • If the username and password columns are blank, it will be considered as anonymous authentication. The user can adjust the Connection Timeout settings between 5 to 300 seconds in BizTalk360
  • Toggle on the 'Use SSL' option for choosing between Explicit or Implicit SSL

  • In the Firewall Configurations section, Choose the 'Mode' (Active or Passive) and Type (Socks_4 and Socks_5)
  • The user can fill in gateway proxy details or just leave it blank. If the user wants to use the default proxy configuration given in 'Settings -> Gateway/Proxy settings', the user can click the 'Use Gateway Proxy' option
  • In the FTP monitoring configurations section, the user can add conditions like trigger warning or error based on the file count in the target server
  • Click the 'Save' button to complete the process
  • If the username and password are valid the server will respond with the number of files with the file mask
  • If the credentials are wrong, then the server will respond with an error code and details. This will be displayed in the name column with a small orange icon, and when you hover over it, it will show the error occurred during the connection
The Count and the Directory Size will be displayed in the Alarm - File Location grid, only after the successful configuration of the FTP location. The values of the Count and Directory Size columns depend on the File Mask
The FTP location will be moved to orphaned if the configuration is not successful
Both BizTalk FTP and nSoftware FTP adapters can be monitored using BizTalk360
