Open secure FTP connection(Power Automate Desktop Action)

Japanese version.

This action connects and logs you in for SFTP operations.

It differs from "Open FTP connection" in that it encrypts the transmission and reception, and many FTP servers cannot connect without this action.

How to use

Drag "Open secure FTP connection" under "FTP".

Set parameters.

Then put in place each action of the FTP operation and finally terminate it with the "Close connection" action.

Specifies the port number. The port number is specified by the server, but the default value of 22 is used in most cases.
