SFTP Config Scenario has Codepage issue with umlaut characters


We are on PI version 7.1

I have many SFTP Config Scenarios which simply pick up a file in one location and deliver it to another. All of these work fine but now I have an issue with one particular scenario where there is a codepage problem. What is happening is that characters with umlauts (äöü... etc) are delivered as garbage.

SFTP delivers files in binary mode and so in PI we don’t convert or change anything therefore this should work. I don’t understand why this particular scenario doesn’t work?

I have seen a number of posts on codepage issues, (including this very useful link, and many of these suggest using AF_Modules/MessageTransformBean, followed by the conversion Bean AF_Modules/TextCodepageConversionBean. The problem is that in my SFTP adapter these Modules are not available, I am assuming because we are only on version 7.1.?

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. 😊
