"How do I register for an SFTP account?"
If a user requires a SFTP account it must be indicated during registration for the account. The user will check the box to Enable SFTP access and will then be required to create a password, and then select states they will be submitting data for.
If you were unable to do so during registration and already have an existing account, see the following article: How to Create an SFTP Account After Registration
Data submitters who select to submit data to PMP Clearinghouse by SFTP must configure individual folders for the state PMP systems they will be submitting data to. The sub-folders should use a state abbreviation for naming (ex. KS, MS, NV, etc). The subfolder must be located in the home/dir directory which is where you land once authenticated. Data files not submitted to a state subfolder will be required to have a manual state PMP assignment made on the File Listings screen.
IMPORTANT: Please write down and remember the password that you enter. Once the SFTP account has been created you will receive an email with the User Id to use for SFTP, however it won't provide the password that you entered. Also, this password will not be stored within the application.
More information on SFTP account registration and file submission, including a complete walkthrough of all steps involved is available in Section 3. Creating Your Account and Section 4.1 Secure FTP, of the state PMP AWARxE Data Submission Guide.
