Data delivery via FTP

This article is regarding how you can have the extracted data delivered via FTP.

On your project screen, go to Data Delivery > FTP and enter your FTP credentials.

  • The Host is your server’s URL with which Grepsr will establish a connection to upload your data.

  • Username and Password are the login credentials with write privileges, i.e. permission to create new files in the server.

  • The default Port for an FTP server is 21, and 22 for SFTP servers, unless configured otherwise.

  • The Path is the folder structure in your FTP server where your files will be uploaded.
    If you leave this field blank, the files will be uploaded to the default folder structure   “GrepsrData/Project_Name/Report_Name”.

  • If you want your files to be updated with data from the latest crawl run, check the Replace old files option, which removes the timestamp from the filenames, and data from each subsequent crawl run will replace the old file(s).

  • Under Delivery Option, select the file formats you’d like your data to be exported as.
    The available formats are:

    • XLSX

    • CSV

    • XML

    • JSON

    • YAML

    • UTF 08 for CSV

  • Click Save when you’re done.

  • Your data will now be exported and delivered directly to your FTP server as soon as a crawl run is complete and the file is exported.
