How to pick file one by one using BizTalk 2016 out of box SFTP adapter RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    Is there any way to pick files from a source ftp location one by one using SFTP adapter. I want to know if there is any setting in SFTP adapter properties other than creating a singleton orchestration.

  • You could use ordered delivery on your send port in a message only sceneario, but this will not prevent the receive location to multiple files

    The nsoftware SFTP adapter supports picking one file at the time

    Maybe you could try the connection limit (set it to 1) on the native BTS SFTP adapter

  • I'm reasonable confident (by observation, not reflecting) that the SFTP Adapter is already singleton, just fast.

    However, if you're looking to create an ordered process, first be aware that SFTP has no concept of order so there is no guarantee messages will arrive deterministically.

    Next, a singleton Adapter is only one small part of an ordered process so anything you do afterward, including any Orchestrations, will have to implement a Singleton Pattern as well.
