How to Access your SFTP Site Manually

Overview

When you are establishing an HRIS integration with Quantum Workplace using the flat file transfer method, your Customer Success Manager will create an SFTP site for your team to use. Your IT team will then automate the transfer of your employee file to the SFTP site. SFTP file transfer provides a secure and reliable solution for file transfer. The benefit of using SFTP over FTP or toher file transfer protocols is the data encryption and protection mechanisms built into the SFTP SSH2 protocol. 

Quantum Workplace does not have a web interface for accessing SFTP, which means you do not access the SFTP site through a web browser. To manually add a file to the SFTP site, you will need to use an SFTP/FTP Client Application installed on your computer. Two popular Client applications are Cyberduck and Filezilla, both of which are free to use. Once you download and install one of these, you will be able to input the server, username, and password information to access the SFT file storage.
