SHIFT permits users who have upload permission on their account to upload files to any Project or Folder via third party SFTP Apps. SHIFT will only allow Secure File Transfer (SFTP) and will not permit any un-secure FTP integrations.
By integrating with an SFTP, SHIFT will create independent SFTP credentials that are unique and specific to any Project or Folder in your workspace. Additionally, SHIFT will allow multiple users to create SFTP credentials and to be able to upload through their own account.
To begin implementing an SFTP integration in your account, please click the Actions Item (Three Dots) on either an existing Project or Folder in your SHIFT account. Then select Advanced > Create SFTP Credentials. We’ll generate a username and password for you to upload only to that location.
Once you click "Create SFTP Credentials" for whichever Project or Folder you have selected, a Host destination, username, and password will be provided to you. These credentials will only be available for you to upload to that Project or Folder location.
You will need to save these 3 values to authenticate in your third-party SFTP client. Select the "copy" icon on the right of each field to save these.
Once you create these credentials, you will be able to manage them in your Profile > Integrations.
Here you will be able to see all the SFTP integrations you have set up in your SHIFT account along with their usernames and passwords.
You will also be able to delete any existing SFTP integrations by clicking the "Trash Can" icon.
SHIFT SFTP supports uploading both files and folders, just like the browser uploader. If you upload a folder tree containing many folders/assets into your SFTP client, the folder tree will recreate itself with the appropriate assets in your account.
