  • 1.  Pipeline to Place a CSV file on a FTP Path?

    Posted 10-05-2022 10:26
    With the help of the Quickbase Junkie, I believe I know how to create a CSV file using a Pipeline.  Is there a Pipeline Channel to place that file on an FTP file path?

    Hi Mark;
    I don't think there is a channel for that. If there was, you would know it before us :)
    You may use ftp api in webhook or JSON handler(fetch JSON). 

    There is a service and they have examples to show you how o use it.
    But I am not sure it is safe or goof to use.
    Link to site: https://www.ftp-api.com/

    The other thing you may want to try is uploading file to Google drive. After file is uploaded you can trigger Google App Script to upload file to FTP. There are some script examples online or you can use Zapier:

    Razi,
    Thx for your ideas.
    Support says there is no native Channel step for placing a file on an FTP Path.
