Build SFTP with docker and use BTP Cpi to test the OP SFTP Service

Today I supported  a customer for CPI sftp call . I blog down the test process for your reference .

The prerequisite is :

Docker has been install on your laptop.

SAP Cloud connector has been installed and configured on you laptop

You have configured  BTP Cloud platform integration suite .

You have installed WinSCP to test SFTP service

You have installed postman to test deployed cpi iflow


The following is the steps :

Step 1, Build SFTP  with docker on laptop

pull sftp image with following command:

docker pull atmoz/sftp

run the image with the following command:

docker run –name mysftp20 -v C:\Users\userid\Documents\sftpupload:/home/foo/upload –privileged=true -p 2222:22 -d atmoz/sftp foo:pass:100


foo is the sftp username , pass is the sftp password . The local port 2222 is linked to container port 22 . The following local directory is bind to the docker container:


test the sftp with winSCP


Step 2: configure sap cloud connector to map the sftp service :


check in BTP Cockpit sub account:


Step 3: create user name and password in cpi for SFTP service



Step 4: test SFTP service with CPI

Step 5: create IFLOW to call sftp

Step 6: use postman to test the deployed iflow

use key from CPI runtime in BTP cockpit subaccount as oauth2.0 information

use postman to test cpi iflow


Step 7: check the result in sftp file

The end

      Hi, Avinash,

      Thanks !

      Customers or Partners need to know CPI SFTP adapter use case end to end. Docker is the simple way to create docker service on laptop . So docker is for testing purpose .

      The following is the document for docker install .

      Best Regards!
