The Cloud Object Monitor Event is used when you want to download files from Amazon S3 or Azure blob storage.
Files arriving at EFT can be automatically copied/moved to cloud storage.
Timer rules can download files from cloud storage at set intervals
Download always uses TLSv1.2 protocol
With the Cloud object monitor Event, EFT administrators can:
Connect natively to Amazon S3 and Azure blobs without scripting, manual browsing, or complexity in setting up connections
Integrate natively with cloud storage through EFT without the need for outside integration
The Cloud Object Monitor Event does not support cloud-to-cloud (S3 to S3, Azure to S3, or S3 to Azure) direct file transfers. Currently, it can only download from the cloud to EFT, and then upload from EFT to the cloud. Timer Event Rules are also capable of downloading files from the cloud:
