    Hi Indira,

    If you have Security SSL along with Command Order as per the FTPS then you can use FTPS.

    If you have SSL and more Proxy host and user ad PW security then you cn use HTTPS.

    If you have both options then try to ue FTPS for more reliability.

    • Write error handling mechanism in Script and generate log file for every execution, so that it enables you to track info when SFTP system down or connetovity issues.

      If you have two otions to use SOAP-HTTP /FTPS but looking for right one then use SOAP-HTTP. But both adapters error handling same.

    With respect to security perspective both are doing the same work. But in terms of clarity, generic nature and less maintanence, I would certainly vote soap over https design more than ftps.
