File Filtering

When getting or putting files via FTP, the files selected can be included and excluded using various filter criteria:

  • Wildcards (i.e. "trans*.txt" or "*.xls")
  • Regular expressions
  • Date and time range
  • Size range
  • Variables passed to the Project

FTP Logs

Audit trails (logs) are generated for all FTP transmissions in GoAnywhere MFT to meet auditing and compliance requirements. The level of log detail can be controlled by an administrator on a per-Project basis. This detail can be configured to include all FTP commands issued, FTP messages and file names transferred. Logs can be viewed from within the browser-based administrator, and can be filtered by date range, user name, file name and other criteria. Log messages can additionally be sent to a Syslog server using UDP or TCP connections.
