    Hi @tale

    In DSS you can use files on an SFTP connection without code. The steps would be:
    1) Create an SFTP connection using username/password or using the SSH key must be of the dss user (~/.ssh/id_rsa ) which needs to be allowed on the remote server

    2) Create managed folder pointing to the path you want to the SFTP connection

    3) Create "Files in Folder" pointing to the SFTP managed folder flow the(b + Dataset - Internal - Files in Folder)

    4) Configure the under Advanced options the regex or glob you want to use.

    Then you can use this dataset upstream in the recipe, if you need to move to filesystem managed or SQL dataset simply use a Sync recipe.

    If you must use code you can have a look at online examples using paramiko: :
