Hi I appreciate the help with this, i am fairly new to SDC. Essentially i need a pipeline, that: executes a query with parameters, possibly a Stored Procedure, generates a file (could be excel or csv), and then that file would need to be transfer through SFTP to a server.

Thanks a lot, Tatiana

At present there is no SFTP destination, so you would use the JDBC Query Consumer origin to execute the query, the Local FS destination to write the results in CSV (delimited) format to the local filesystem, and the Shell Executor to run the sftp command when the file is closed. See the documentation on dataflow triggers for some similar use cases.

There's also an existing ticket for SFTP/FTP destination if you'd like to watch and vote --
