Setup Guide - FTP

Follow our setup guide to connect FTP data to DataChannel.


To connect FTP to DataChannel, you need:

  • An active FTP account with permissions to access data from accounts you’d like to sync. This account needs to be a admin account with delete privileges.

Setup instructions

  1. Select a data destination for your FTP Data. If you have not yet added a data warehouse, go to data warehouse tab and add a warehouse.

    Data Warehouse once selected cannot be changed.
  2. Authorise DataChannel to connect to your FTP account using the FTP credentials, typically by using admin access. Save your credentials by using Name, Host IP, Username and Password. Click on Save once you have entered the details, as shown below. You only need to authorise DataChannel to connect to your account once.
