The FTP connector is in beta. See the Sources overview for more information on using beta-labelled connectors.
Adobe Experience Platform provides native connectivity for cloud providers like AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Azure, allowing you to bring your data from these systems.
Cloud storage sources can bring your own data into Platform without the need to download, format, or upload. Ingested data can be formatted as XDM JSON, XDM Parquet, or delimited. Every step of the process is integrated into the Sources workflow. Platform allows you to bring in data from an FTP or an SFTP server through batches.
When creating a dataflow with the FTP source connector, it is strongly recommended to set for a one-time ingestion schedule due to lingering issues with incremental updates encountered within FTP servers.
A list of IP addresses must be added to an allow list prior to working with source connectors. Failing to add your region-specific IP addresses to your allow list may lead to errors or non-performance when using sources. See the IP address allow list page for more information.
The following is a list of constraints you must account for when naming your cloud storage file or directory.
