Hello experts,

I need to send an XML file from SAP to an FTP server and i know how to do that using the server name or adress, the password (given as letters and numbers) and of course the username. The problem here is that the client gave me a RSA key instead of a password.

And i have no idea what it is or how does it work ? i tried to google it but it seems that i can't fully understand it, i read something about certificate..etc

PS : the way i generete and send the XML file is purely by using ABAP.

Any thoughts of how this works ?

Thanks in advance

If RSA is involved I'm guessing it's SFTP rather than FTP. If so then it's not feasible with "ABAP only". If you Google "SFTP ABAP" it finds this blog.

I believe the certificate will need to be installed on the SAP server in any case, so ask the local Basis team to assist with this.
