Integration Cloud tools and options for File Handling

File Based Adapters : FTP, File, SOAP and REST adapters

File based Activities : Stage File, Mapper Functions

File Based Adapters

Integration Cloud provides these adapters that primarily help implement file-based integration flows

  • FTP Adapter
