User session export via SFTP

Dear All,

Is it possible to export user session data to the endpoint using the SFTP protocol on port 22?

If you are referring to the User Session Export then no, as it is HTTP based.  The only other way to export user session data is selectively via the User Session API which is also HTTP based. 


There is no way to export the data via (s)ftp.

Well, not in one step at least. Since you can export, you can transfer the exported result with a simple script.

@Babar_Qayyum, what are you actually trying to accomplish? Maybe it is an option to pull the data on the endpoint itself using the API?

Hello @fstekelenburg 

The customer is asking to export the user session data using SFTP instead of HTTP. Therefore, I wanted to know the method or a workaround to fulfill this requirement.


Is there any way to fetch the session data directly from the Dynatrce node in the form of JSON using the third-party tool (BMC's Control-M software)?


Is it make sense to obtain user session data in the form of JSON and then using the third-party tool (BMC's Control-M software) to fetch this data?
