SFTP connectors will now publish file transfer event notifications in Amazon EventBridge. With this enhancement, you can orchestrate your file transfer and file-processing workflows in Amazon Web Services Cloud using Amazon EventBridge, or any workflow orchestration service of your choice that integrates with these events.

SFTP connectors provide fully managed functionality to copy files between remote SFTP servers and Amazon S3. Amazon EventBridge is a serverless event bus that makes it easy to build event-driven applications by routing events between Amazon Web Services, third-parties and customer’s own applications. With SFTP connectors events in Amazon EventBridge, you can easily respond to successful or failed file transfer operations, invoke downstream processing of your transferred files, and integrate files with your applications and data lakes. For example, when files are retrieved from remote SFTP servers, you can use the event to initiate an extract, transform and load (ETL) job using Amazon Glue or customized file-processing using Amazon Step Functions. Similarly, when files are sent to remote SFTP servers, you can receive automated notifications for errors using Amazon SNS. In addition to SFTP connectors, all Amazon Transfer Family resources including server endpoints for SFTP, AS2, FTPS and FTP publish event notifications, enabling you to build event-driven Managed File Transfer (MFT) architectures in Amazon Web Services Cloud.

Amazon Transfer Family support for publishing events in Amazon EventBridge is available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To learn more, visit the documentation.
