To be able to honour or ignore Passive IP from Business Processes selectively for the 3rd party partners without impacting all other partners.

This request is an enhancement to the property "ps_ftpclient.honourPASV=<true or false>".

When we set this property, it affects all 3rd party partners.

Instead, if we can do this configuration from Business Process, then we will be able to use it selectively for the 3rd party partners, without affecting all other 3rd party partners.

How will this idea be used?

Customer has one third party partner who responds back with a different private IP address from what is used in FTPClientBeginSession service(Public IP).

Using the property (ps_ftpclient.honourPASV) which can be used to ignore the private IP responded back from server, and thus enforcing to use public IP used in the FTPClientBeginSession service is actually affecting other such 3rd party partners.

Hence customer is looking for the ability to update this property selctively for the 3rd party partners.

Please add this feature in the releavnt FTP Client services configuration parameters (FTPClientGET and FTPClientPUT), by which we will be able to configure Business Processes to use the feature selectively for the partners where required, without impacting others.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. Your input is valuable in shaping the roadmap for the product. While we agree that this idea would add value, it is not something we are able to assign priority to at this time. In general, when accepting an idea, we strive to deliver the enhancement within 18 months. We will continue to monitor this enhancement for interest, feel free to re-enter the idea in 12 months to see if priorities have shifted. If you have any additional questions or concerns please reach out.
