Here are the steps you can follow:

Step 1: Enable SFTP/FTP origin to produce events by checking Produce Events checkbox.

Step 2: Add Stream Selector processor to handle finished-file events using condition expression ${record:eventType() == "finished-file"}

Step 3: Add Shell executor and on Environment tab set the current file name and path in environment variable, for example, file_to_archive using expression ${record:value('/filepath')}.

Step 4: On Script tab add shell script to archive the file. For example:

exit 0

Note that $file_to_archive in the script matches variable name set in Step 3.

Hope this helps!

Is it appropriate to write ftp commands in shell executor for the Windows File Server?

I am working in a development cloud environment, trying to remove the file from SFTP. As could result obvious I am getting the message stderr: mv: failed to access ‘/efs/home/b553851/streamset/destination’: Permission denied, because it is in the sftp and I cannot send the password to authenticate.
