Base64 conversion for File Stored at FTP location

Hello Community,

I need to read the file form SFTP location and process available files to upload into application. I am not supposed to download the files to local. These files need to be converted to base64 for which i have used “Base64 Encode From File” activity, it is looking for the files from local system rather than SFTP location as an input path for the activity.

Is there any way, we can change the input file path to SFTP location ?
