We have created an automated process where a file is sent from a Windows machine to the GoAnywhere MFT and upon its arrival, a trigger starts a process which sends the file to the z/OS environment where our job scheduling software is configured to submit a batch job when the file arrives in z/OS. In this sequence it is the presence of the file either in the MFT environment or the z/OS environment which is the actuator.
We would like to replicated this workflow, but in the reverse where we send a file from z/OS to the MFT and upon it's arrival in the MFT, be sent on to a folder in a directory which resides on a SFTP server. How could this best be accomplished.

This process can be easily accomplished by triggering a GoAnywhere Director Project. The GAD Project could, in turn, connect to the z/OS, retrieve the file and place it onto the sFTP Server.

One of our Support Staff could help you with setting this up!
