After the files have been created in the local directory, the FTPJobProvider connects to the FTP server and transfers the files to the server. After a signal, a connection is set up to the FTP Server and the data is transferred. The directories Request and Response are expected to be found on the FTP Server. The names of these directories are fixed and cannot be changed. The software components (Job provider/Job destination) deposit or collect the files from here. The FTP user requires the necessary access rights to create, rename and delete files.

Table 90: FTPJobProvider parameters



Backup of transferred files (BackupFiles)

If this option is enabled, all files (with or without errors) are moved to a Backup subdirectory. In the default case (not set) only files with errors are saved.

Check file index (CheckInputIndex)

If this option is set, the file name index is checked to see if has increased in size. Files with the same or a lower index are not processed. This option is not set by default.

Max. number of process trees in a transfer file (MaxListCount)

Maximum number of process steps that can be grouped together as a file. This allows limiting of the file size.

Use encryption (UseEncryption)

Specifies whether the data is to be written to the files in encrypted form.

NOTE: The setting for encryption must be identically configured in the job provider and the related job destination.

Notification methods (EventTypes)

The job provider supports three different methods for providing notification about new data. The notification methods can be combined when separated by commas.



Table 91: Supported notification methods
Method Description


Newly stored data is queried at defined intervals.


The provider queries the parent Job server via HTTP and processes the stored data once the server replies.


Newly stored data is queried after a file system event.

Remote host for HTTP notification (HostName)

If using the HTTP notification method, enter the name of the remote host here to which the queries are transferred.

HTTP notification port (Port)

If using the HTTP notification method, enter the port for transfer here.

File lookup timer interval (ms) (TimerInterval)

If using the TIMER notification method, enter the interval in milliseconds here.

Input directory (InputDirectory)

The module reads and processes the process files (*.fjg) in this directory.

NOTE: Ensure that the job provider and related job destination use the same directory. Input directory and output directory are then reversed accordingly.

Output directory (OutputDirectory)

Directory to which the processed files are written.

Subdirectories (SubDirectories)

You can enter a list of directory names separated by a pipe character (|) here. All the directories are then monitored and processed correspondingly. The following directory structure is expected:

SubDirectories = "ServerA|ServerB"








where Request and Response are the directories specified in the Input directory (InputDirectory) and Output directory (OutputDirectory) parameters.

NOTE: You can only use the Timer notification method. The HTTP and FSEvent notification methods are not available.

Automatic identification of subdirectories (AutoSubDirectories)

If this option is enabled, the module automatically processes all the files in the subdirectories. Processing is not recursive.

FTP Server (FTPServer)

Name or IP address of the FTP server.

FTP port (FTPPort)

Port for FTP transfer The default port is port 21.

FTP user account (FTPUser)

User account for FTP login.

FTP password (FTPPassword)

  • Password for the user account for FTP login.

    The HTTPJobProvider receives process steps from a parent Job server. The data transfer is carried out by HTTP.

    Table 92: HTTPJobProvider parameters



    Receiver port (ParentPort)

    HTTP port of the parent Job server.

    Receiver server (ParentServer)

    DNS name or IP address of the parent Job server.


    Number of retries performed by the module if the data transfer fails.


    This defines how long the module will wait after a failed process step transfer before retrying.

    Timeout format:


    Remote domain (RemoteDomain)

    User account domain on the remote HTTP server.

    Remote user account (RemoteUser)

    User account for logging onto the HTTP server.


    Password for the user account for logging onto the HTTP server.

    The AppServerJobProvider retrieves the process steps from the application server and sends them to a job destination.

    Table 93: AppServerJobProvider parameters



    Authentication data (AuthenticationString)

    Select the authentication module. Depending on the authentication module, other data may be required, for example, user and password. For detailed information about the One Identity Manager authentication modules, see the One Identity Manager Authorization and Authentication Guide.

    Max. number of pending requests (RequestQueueLimit)

    The process requests are internally cached. This parameter defines the maximum number of cache entries. The default value is 1000.

    Max. number of pending results (ResultQueueLimit)

    The process results are internally cached. This parameter defines the maximum number of cache entries. The default value is 10000.

    Connection parameter (ConnectString)

    Web address (URL) of the application server.

    Job destination module

    In this module, you specify the job destination. This handles the process steps and returns an result to the Job provider. The following module types may be selected:

    NOTE: You can configure any number of job destinations in one configuration file. The associated configuration sections are determined by name. Therefore the Job destinations that are added can be renamed.
