SFTP (password-based auth) uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your SFTP (password-based auth) account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to SFTP (password-based auth) APIs in both code and no-code steps.

Below, enter the hostname of the SFTP server you'd like to connect to, your username, and the password you'd like to use to connect.

This app only supports password-based authentication, not authentication via private key. If you need to use a private key to connect to a host, please use the SFTP (key-based auth) app, instead.
