How to configure SFTP keys for Multi Tenant (MT) content export

Content export (CE) for Multi Tenant (MT) pods requires the user to configure an SFTP RSA key to access the CE files on the SFTP server. The SFTP is essentially an SSH key but with 4096 bits.

To configure an SFTP RSA key, the user must have a Unix/Linux type environment available and also ensure that OpenSSH is installed.

Configure and generate RSA SFTP keys:

  1. Enter ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 to begin generating the RSA SFTP key.
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
  1. Provide the location for saving the key. This example uses the default path.
Enter file in which to save the key (/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa):
  1. You will be asked to enter a passphrase a passphrase. This is optional and you can proceed without entering a passphrase.
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
Enter same passphrase again:
  1. The location of the private key and public key are displayed.
Your identification has been saved in /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa
Your public key has been saved in /home/user/.ssh/
  1. Paste the SFTP Public key (the file that ends in .pub) into the SFTP tab of the Admin Portal.
  2. Select Save New Key to complete the process.
