SAP SFTP ADDON not able to handle password expiry messages of SFTP server


Hi All,

Need your inputs on an issue that we have.

We are on PI7.11 SP08. We are using SAP SFTP ADDON. One of the channels connects to a SFTP server using userid/password authentication mode . Password of the user on the SFTP server has to be renewed every 60 days(SFTP server team is not willing to keep password expiry as Never) and password expiry message (user id password will expire in another xx days)is thrown before 20 days of expiry of the password. The channel works well for 40 days and then when the SFTP server throws a message that the password is going to expire, the channel throws an error with the expiry message .It works ok (for 40 days)after password on SFTP server is reset .

My question is

1. Is there any way to handle expiry pop up messages thrown by SFTP server?

2. Do we need to make any settings in PI ?

Please suggest a way to overcome this issue.
