SecureFX can I update the timestamp?

Using secureFX to copy an old file from one server to another can I have secureFX update the file with the current date and time when I place the file?

Example: program.sh is created in dev it will have the timestamp for when it was last updated.

When I copy the file to Prod I want the deployment date for the timestamp.

When I copy the files now the creation timestamp is preserved.

Hello shadley,

What version of SecureFX are you using? (Help / About SecureFX...)

What protocol are you using for the uploads?

Hello shadley,

That's a fairly old version of SecureFX (circa 2005).

The SFTP version that is negotiated between client and server might be a consideration with respect to what is even possible.

Could you send the SecureFX log of the connection as an attachment to an email to support@vandyke.com and reference "Attn Brenda - Forum Thread #11425" in the subject line?

Please make sure to redact any sensitive data.

Hello shadley,

Sorry, I was referring to the SFTP version that is negotiated, not SecureFX version.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database for the ability to have files uploaded using SFTP to be timestamped by the server, and not keep the client-side timestamp. Should a future release of SecureFX include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct e-mail notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #11425" in the subject line.
