MOVEit

 

MOVEit is a managed file transfer software product produced by Progress Software. MOVEit encrypts files and uses file transfer protocols such as FTP(S) or SFTP to transfer data, as well as provides automation services, analytics, and failover options. 

  • MOVEit Automation provides a simple but powerful user interface for defining business workflows that anyone on your IT team can use. With MOVEit Automation, you can automate tasks like pushing and pulling files to/from any FTP server based on events or schedule, manipulating/transforming file content, managing files for transfer, storage or deletion.
  • MOVEit Transfer supports the exchange of files and data between servers, systems and applications within and between organizations, as well as between groups and individuals using a common shared folder with simple browser access for users. MOVEit Transfer supports the ease of access and secure file transfer that meets or exceeds an organization’s security and compliance requirements.

Data Source

MOVEit Automation provides a set of RESTful APIs (application programming interfaces) to allow users to access resources on a MOVEit Automation server. These APIs can be used to integrate MOVEit Automation with other applications, automate creation of MOVEit Automation resources (such as hosts or tasks), or create custom user interfaces.

  1. Create a MOVEit Automation user that has access to REST API under MOVEit Add-On > configuration > account.
  2. Create New MOVEit Automation inputs mapped on the source types listed below.

Source Types

  • moveit:automation:assets. Updated lists of host and keys
  • moveit:automation:reports. Export reports for tasks runs, file activity, or audit logs

Data Source

MOVEit Transfer REST API enables you to develop, integrate, and deploy applications that need secure data and managed file transfer as part of their workflow. Feeding or saving files with data governed by data security standards such as HIPAA, PCI, GDPR, and more are some obvious examples where this would be necessary.

  1. Create a MOVEit Transfer user that has access to REST API under MOVEit Add-On >configuration > account.
  2. Create new MOVEit Transfer inputs mapped on the source types listed below.

Source Types

  • moveit:transfer:config. Get moveit configuration 
  • moveit:transfer:filestorage. Get list of files and their status including total file size, file count transferred over time
  • moveit:transfer:logs. Get list of logs current user can view 
  • moveit:transfer:reports. Get all reports current user can view
  • moveit:transfer:userinfo. Get list of users and their details
  • moveit:transfer:xfersstatus. Get the transfer status including the uploads and downloads
