sFTP poller allows for *text*

The see SFTP Client List Service does not support a search pattern of *text*. All other pollers within SI supports this standard method of polling. ( CLA adapter, mailbox routing rules, etc )

If the sFTP poller attempts to poll for *text*, no results are found.

Only one * (wildcard) is allowed in the remote filename allowed. For example, the following are valid:

The following is not valid:
When entered, the client adapter will not fail, but it will not return any results either.

    A very large media client was using legacy unix scripts to move files across servers using FTP and we suggested them to go with B2B 6.0 and the client agreed looking at the features of B2B Integrator. Once the implementation started, the client wanted to move all FTP partners to SFTP protocol, since it was more secure. But the limitation caused by multiple wild characters not working for SFTP Client List , is making them rethink of their decision to purchase B2B. We are not able to explain to Business as to why the simple standard listing using multiple wildcards works for FTP client adapter but not for the secure SFTP client adapter.

    This basic listing has to be made available as we are not able to highlight the exhaustive features of B2B Integrator and to use B2B Integrator across further projects ,when the business is just focused on a small issue.

    Ideally the LIST should support use of multiple glob(7) characters to define the required result list. It would also be useful to be able to specify the -t flag to sort the results by modification time.
