Automate Filezilla

Hello friends,
@rkelchuri, @Ninett_Panfir, @Rammohan91, @balupad14, @Florent_Salendres, @vvaidya, @Palaniyappan, @ClaytonM, @vvaidya

Since FTP UIPath features are not working, I am using Filezilla for file transfer from local to the ftp server.
Can anyone provide an indication on how to select files from the local and to transfer on the remote server?
Can you please share a sample workflow on how to do that?

thank you so much for your precious help,
Cami :slight_smile:

Hello @CamiCat,
Assuming that you are able logged into your FTP site using FileZilla, you can use the following steps to upload a local file to the remote site.

I have not implemented this in production, so you may still have to test this and tweak the selectors for stability. This is worked in my test environment.

  • Use TypeInto Activity to set the “Local site” path to navigate to the local folder.
  • Use Send HotKey “enter”.
  • Use Assign activities to build your custom selector. You should replace the filename in your selector with the filename that you want to upload like <ctrl name='" + MySelector + "' role='list item' />.
  • Use DoubleClick activity to upload the file to the remote site.

Hi @CamiCat,
The workflow here gets the FTP credentials, local path and URL from the orchestrator. It will login to the FTP site using FileZilla command line arguments and set the local path. It then checks for file with txt extension in local path and will upload them one by one in a loop.

Give this a try and let me know if this resolved your issue or you need more help.
