Server Port - default SFTP port
Root Folder - the SFTP directory
Username - the user that has exclusive access to the SFTP root folder or directory
SSH Public Key Id - Host reference id for the client’s public key. Note this is an Envizi reference Id to support troubleshooting SFTP issues. It is not the client’s SSH Public Key.
Updated By - name of the user that updated the connection details

Adding a User
Envizi requires the SSH public key to be provided in OpenSSH format (i.e., starting with “ssh-rsa”). If your key is in the SSH2 format (i.e., starting with “---- BEGIN SSH2 PUBLIC KEY ----”) it will need to be converted to the OpenSSH format before entering the key below.
Use your preferred key generator to generate SSH public/private key pair of type ‘RSA’ and ‘2048’ bits. Save your Private Key file which you will use to authenticate connections to the SFTP server. You may optionally choose to add a key passphrase for extra security.
Copy your SSH Public Key from Step 1 above in the OpenSSH format. In Envizi, right-click on the connection and choose Add User from action menu which opens the Add User form with an autogenerated username. Paste in your SSH Public Key in the OpenSSH format and click Save.
You can now use your preferred file manager to connect to the SFTP directory for file transfer using
the connection details from Envizi
Server Endpoint (and Port)
your private key file (and key passphrase if set).
Removing a user
On the Manage Connections page, select connection where the user will be removed.
Right-click and choose Delete User from the action menu.
A confirmation message will appear, confirming if the user wants to continue.
The user will be removed from the existing connection on the Manage Connections page.
