2481090 - In SuccessFactors it's Not Possible for Vendor/Admin to Place a File on the SFTP Server w/o Having Access to Everything


  • Is it possible for vendor to place a file in the SFTP folder server without accessing any other folder/file details?
  • Unable to assign required permissions for accessing a specific folder on the SFTP server.


SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite


  • Both are not possible per current SFTP design.
  • SFTP accounts do not follow User Access Management via Role Based Permissions or file/folder management, as this could enable the ability to restrict user/admin/vendor access to particular folder/files within the SFTP account.

NOTE: To have this functionality considered for future development, please create an Enhancement Request.
