SFTP HEC AL11 files to third party Server

950 Views Last edit Nov 29, 2018 at 09:31 AM 2 rev

I have a requirement in which i am trying to develop a code in ABAP to SFTP files from application directory based on linux server to a third party server. I am convinced that FM: SXPG_COMMAND_EXECUTE would help me do it. Now for this i have the target server ip, port, target user, target folder and obviously the application directory folder from which the files would be picked.This will suffice the input to the function module get the source and target folders.

The files that are to be SFTP-ed are of a format that wont be possible to open in sap, also they are each of 1GB. And the source folder would contain around 30 such files.

The questions i would like to ask experts would be as follows:

  1. What other configurations that i might require to connect to the target system.
  2. Will the above mentioned function module send the files without needing to open them.
  3. Will it impact SAP application in anyway.

Any help regarding this would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
