User story

I want to be able to list files on an SFTP server and check if certain files are still on the server or have already been downloaded (like the FTP Server File Count Sensor).

Details of user story

Data must be downloaded from an SFTP server so that it can be imported into our specialist software. Since deadlines are bound to this data, it must be checked whether data still exists or has already been downloaded. The sensor must check whether data with a specific file name still exists on the SFTP drive and can be downloaded. Just like the FTP Server File Count Sensor.

Acceptance criteria

  • Login to the SFTP Server
  • Check if files exists
  • Feedback from sensor if files exists or not
