Configure File Settings

Use the Settings page to monitor File Server’s overall health and change its main settings.

  1. From the side pane of the Oracle Integration Home page, choose Settings, then File Server, then Settings.
    The Settings page is displayed.
  2. Under Status settings, monitor the server's status, and stop or restart as needed.
    Field Description

    File System Health

    View the total space and percent in use. Each File Server service instance provides 500GB of storage.

    • If the available space falls below 10%, a warning is displayed.

    • If no space is available, a red indicator is displayed and uploading stops, although operations that do not use additional space still function.

    SFTP Server Status

    View the SFTP server’s state: Running or Stopped.

    • Click Stop to stop the server at any time. File Server stops after all current file transfers are complete.

    • Once stopped, the button's name changes to Start. Click Start to restart the server.

  3. Under General settings, specify a timeout and note the IP and Port settings.
    Field Descripton

    Idle Timeout (sec)

    Set the number of seconds that an SFTP client can be idle before being disconnected by File Server. The default timeout value is 240 seconds (4 minutes) and the maximum value is 300 seconds (5 minutes).

    IP and Port Information

    Note the read only, public IP and port values of the SFTP server for this Oracle Integration instance, which were assigned during provisioning. Use these values in configuring the Oracle Integration FTP adapter and SFTP clients.

  4. Under Users Default Configuration for Home Folder, view the user home folder's base path and specify the folder's default permissions.
    Field Description

    Folder Path

    Displays the default home folder path for users. (Configure individual users on the Users page, as described in Configure Users.) You can't change the system's default home.

    • For users, the default home path is home/users/. If you leave a user configured to use the default home (choose User Default as Home Folder Type on the Users page), the full path to the user's home is /home/users/[username].

    • If a user's home folder is set to Group Inherited on the Users page and the user is a member of a group, then the user will inherit the group's home folder.

    Permissions

    Set default permissions for the user home folder. (Configure permissions for specific folders on the Folders page, as described in Configure Folders.) If you don’t assign specific permissions, these settings are used.

    • All: Assign all permissions to the user home folder.

    • Read: Allow files to be downloaded.

    • Write: Allow files to be uploaded.

    • Delete: Allow files to be deleted.

    • List: Allow folder contents to be listed.

    • Create Folders: Allow subfolders to be created.

    • Rename Folders: Allow subfolders to be renamed.

    • Delete Folders: Allow subfolders to be deleted.

    • Propagate to subfolders: Apply the selected permissions to all subfolders. You can block this setting using the Do not inherit setting when configuring subfolder permissions from the Folders page.

  5. Under Groups Default Configuration for Home Folder, view the home folder's base path and specify the folder's default permissions.
    Field Description

    Folder Path

    Displays the base path for group home folders. (Configure individual groups on the Users page, as described in Configure Users.) You can't change the system's default home.

    For groups, the default home path is home/groups/. If you leave a group configured to use the default home (choose Group Default as Home Folder Type on the Users page), the full path to the group's home is /home/users/[groupname].

    Permissions

    Set default permissions for the group home folder. (Configure permissions for specific folders on the Folders page, as described in Configure Folders.) If you don’t assign specific permissions, these settings are used.

    • Propagate to subfolders: Apply the selected permissions to all subfolders. You can block this setting using the Do not inherit setting when configuring subfolder permissions from the Folders page.

    • All: Assign all permissions to the user or group home folder.

    • Read: Allow files to be downloaded.

    • Write: Allow files to be uploaded.

  6. Under Security, select an authentication type and change security settings as needed.
    Field Description

    Authentication Type

    Specify whether authentication is by password, ssh key based, or either.

    Note:

    Key based authentication supports Open SSH format only. Want to learn more? See Generate SSH Keys in PEM Format to Connect to a Public or On-Premises sFTP Server in Using the FTP Adapter with Oracle Integration.
