Quickbase Sync SFTP Connections - Ending Support for SHA-1

Quickbase is focused on continually helping our customers improve their security by using the safest security protocols and aligning with industry best practices for data security and integrity. For that reason, Quickbase Sync (for connected tables) will be updating the SFTP connector to only allow connections to SFTP servers that use SHA-2. See the list of supported algorithms below.
To give you time to transition, the current version of the SFTP connector (Version 1) will continue to be available for existing connections until the Quickbase May 2024 release. Beginning with the Quickbase November 2023 release, connection owners can switch existing connections to the new version (Version 2). Quickbase may automatically switch some connections to Version 2 based on the server version and algorithm currently being used by the connection’s SFTP server. New connections created after the November 2023 release will use Version 2.
What do you need to do?
If you are the owner of an SFTP connection in Quickbase, confirm with the administrator of your SFTP server that it is not using SHA-1. If it is, ask that they upgrade to SHA-2. After the November 2023 release, follow these steps to update your SFTP connection to use Version 2 of the SFTP connector:

  1. Select the user dropdown on the Global bar, then choose My Preferences.
  2. In the My Connections section, select the SFTP connection you want to update.
  3. Change the Client Version from 1 to 2 and re-enter the SFTP password.
  4. Click the Save button to save your changes.

Go to one of the connected tables that uses the connection and manually refresh the table to confirm that the refresh works.
