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 component to attempt a multistep authentication process. The component 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 component will continue to send authentication data until the server acknowledges authentication success. If the server rejects an authentication step, the component throws an exception.
- Password: The component will use the values of User and Password to authenticate the user.
- PublicKey: The component 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.
