Setting up SSH keys

When setting up SFTP data imports and exports, SSH keys can be used for authentication purposes in lieu of a password. SSH keys are also an option when uploading custom object records into Oracle Eloqua. After you create a custom object, you can then select SSH key authentication as an option for manually uploading records or scheduled SFTP auto-synchs.

You can generate a key in Oracle Eloqua, download it, and then upload that key to your external server. Alternatively, you can upload an externally created key into Oracle Eloqua.
