Connection to AWS-hosted SFTP server needs to bypass known Host Key checking

We are using Sterling to connect to a SFTP server hosted in AWS services, to push and pull files into our new Data Lake.

This is causing serious issues, as AWS servers are frequently rebuilt automatically, and when they are, a new SSH Host Key is created. This then causes all our transfers to fail, until we have (manually) downloaded the new host key, and updated all (100+) remote SSH profiles.

Is there a way to bypass the Known Host Key check - as this is pretty much redundant these days anyway??

    Seconded.  Host key checking is a thorn in our side when it comes to AWS and customers with improperly clustered environments.
