Dear Community,

I would like to use the UiPath’s FTP activities package (current verion:2.2.0) but could not find this package on the UiPath marketplace and have some questions:

  1. Where did UiPath publish the official FTP package? (And why not on UiPath marketplace?)

  2. Based on the package description (https://docs.uipath.com/activities/docs/about-the-ftp-activities-pack), the package is open source and is on GitHub → how does UiPath ensures that the package is safe, secure and functions like how it’s supposed to?

Thank you very much and best regards

ensure following and that the machine can download packages from a feed

Let us know also the selected target framework from your UiPath Project


Thank you very much for your quick response. I did not see the package because the option from myget was not enabled (only allowed from our local host) - found it manually on Myget

As we are planning to use it in different projects, which use FTP for file transfer in and outside of the organisation, we need to be in line with the security requirements. Thus, I was wondering how UiPath is ensuring the security aspect and the fuctionality aspect of the package when it’s open source?

Thank you!

Hi @Anh_Tran,

I don’t see the link between a package being opensource with it being “secure” or not.
Having said that, if you are concerned with security I would quickly upgrade to version 2.3.0 which has been recently released. Version 2.2.0 had a terrible flaw which always shocked me: you could only pass the password as a simple string (instead of a securestring), forcing you to do all sorts of bad trickery to make it work…
