2183131 - How to Schedule or Send a document to SFTP destination in SAP BI 4.x


  • Schedule or Send to SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) destination is supported with SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.1, Support Package 06, and all later versions
  • SFTP is not supported in SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1, BI Platform 4.0, or 4.1 prior to SP06
  • The SFTP Location destination requires entry of the "fingerprint" value.
  • Using the "fingerprint" value for the SFTP server, as retrieved by a PuTTY or WinSCP client does not work.  Schedules fails with the following error message:
        connection error.[]: [CrystalEnterprise.Sftp]
  • How do I determine the correct value for the "fingerprint" value?
  • How do I validate the "fingerprint" value?
