Inventory Sync: FTP URL Format

Inventory Sync supports downloading files from the following types of servers:

  • Plain-text FTP
  • FTP with implicit SSL/TLS
  • FTP with explicit SSL/TLS
  • SFTP

The type of connection is determined by the very start of the URL:

# Plain-text FTP

# FTP with implicit SSL (FTPS)


# FTP with explicit SSL (FTPS)





If you need to define a non-standard port for the FTP server you can add it after the hostname of the URL. For example, to connect over port 2121:


If you have a file name that changes every day you can use a wildcard in the filename. For example:*.csv

The above URL will download the most recent file in the "feed/" directory that matches the pattern "Inventory*.csv".
