    Automic 12.1, RAFTP v4.

    I tried filing a support ticket, but it was rejected.

    I have a workflow I've built that sends files to an external vendor. The vendor needs these files encrypted using a PGP key they provided before I transfer the files.

    How do I implement this?

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the replies. I'll clarify what I'm asking:

    I'm on a Unix box . I have a PGP key to encrypt files. How do I get UC4 to actually use the key and encrypt?

    Dear Christopher,

    you can encrypt and decrypt with a tool like gpg on unix. Put the key in a key store of the user you use for logging on in the job.

    For automic it's just an operating system command you execute. So, just search for the encrypting tool you want to use, get in running on a shell and put that statement in an unix job.

    Take care, Nicole

    Hi everyone,

    I ended up using the native GPG tool to import and trust the given pub key, and in UC4 I created a JobS - Unix, with the appropriate gpg encryption command passed in as a shell parameter.

    Thanks all!
