3167515 - SFTP file moved or deleted after Inbound Integration Center job


After an Inbound Integration Center job reads the SFTP file, then you find the file disappears from the original folder.

The file has been either moved to another folder, or deleted on the SFTP.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Run an Inbound Integration Center Interface
  2. Check the file folder on the SFTP Server
  3. The file disappears after the job reads it


"Processing Folder" is configured with a folder path


"Processing Folder" is usually set to a different folder on SFTP. File will be moved from "File Folder" to "Processing Folder" after it is read or processed.

If you enter same path for "File Folder" and "Processing Folder", as per current behavior the file would be simply deleted and disappear from SFTP.
