The authentication method to be used to log on to an SFTP server.
Possible ValuesNone, MultiFactor, Password, PublicKey
- None: No authentication will be performed. The current User value is ignored, and the connection will be logged in as anonymous.
- MultiFactor: This allows the driver to attempt a multistep authentication process. The driver will send authentication data to the server based on the list of methods allowed for the current user and the authentication property values supplied. The driver will continue to send authentication data until the server acknowledges authentication success. If the server rejects an authentication step, the driver throws an exception.
- Password: The driver will use the values of User and Password to authenticate the user.
- PublicKey: The driver will use the values of User and SSHClientCert to authenticate the user. SSHClientCert must have a private key available for this authentication method to succeed.
