'Append' or 'Use temporary file' not working in SFTP receiver channel

Hi Experts

I am using SFTP receiver channel to write file to sftp service/server offered by an vendor. In processing tab of channel I can select 'Direct', 'Append' or 'Use temporary file' in write modus field. The direct mode works as I am able to write a new file to sftp target. But Append and Use temp file do not work. The logs at sftp server show the following message 'SSH: Open file in Append mode is not supported'.

Is it limitation of SFTP protocol that does not allow append?

Is there any other way to use append or temp file mode with SFTP? We need this as we have very large files.

Regards

Sunny

    Hi Sunit!

    SFTP adapter in receiver mode supports appending data to existing file.

    I guess your SFTP user account doesn't have sufficient rights or SFTP server software doesn't support this functionality.

    Hello Sunit,

    Hi Sunit!

    Yes, it's a screenshot of SFTP server application I use, that shows separate access settings for different file operations.
