GoAnywhere


GoAnywhere MFT

Version 5.5.0

Agents

GoAnywhere Agents provide real-time remote workflow and file transfer capabilities that are controlled from a central GoAnywhere MFT server. Agents can be deployed to virtually any operating system including Windows, Linux, IBM i and other platforms. Agents can run on systems inside an organization’s network to move files throughout the data center. Additionally, you can deploy Agents to remote sites like branch offices, cloud environments like Amazon AWS, Azure, and other remote locations. When an Agent starts up, it will connect to GoAnywhere MFT which will then take over management of that Agent.

Agents can run multi-step workflows on the systems where they are installed. These workflows can copy files, archive files, translate data, add data to a database, execute native commands, or other file system tasks. Workflows on Agents can be scheduled to run on a recurring basis.

Agents can also monitor for new, modified, and deleted files on its file system. When a file is found, Agents can process the file locally or call a Project workflow on GoAnywhere MFT.

GoAnywhere MFT acts as the central point of control to manage all Agents which are connected to it. Admin users in GoAnywhere MFT will configure the work that should be performed on its Agents. Administrators can also view events that occurred, such as file transfers or completed jobs on those Agents.

Agents can be grouped together to simplify setup and configuration. This allows administrators to define tasks that should run on all Agents in a group. For example, an organization that has hundreds of retail stores can easily send out new files to each store in the group. Or, a group of Linux servers can be defined to execute the same SSH commands on all Agent systems at once.

Agent Features

Listed below is a summary of features in GoAnywhere Agents:

  • Secures file transfers between Agents and the central GoAnywhere MFT environment.
  • Authenticates Agents connections using X.509 certificates.
  • Monitors for new, modified, and deleted files on Agent systems.
  • Compresses and decompresses files on the Agent systems using Zip, Tar, and Gzip standards.
  • Translates data to/from databases, CSV, Fixed Width, XML, and JSON.
  • Executes native commands on Agents.
  • Controls which folders are accessible on Agents.

Administrator users in GoAnywhere MFT can work with Agents using the following features:

  • Create Agent Templates with registration rules to easily deploy Agents on a large scale.
  • Configure Agents or Agent Groups from the Agent Console on GoAnywhere MFT.
  • Design Project Workflows to be executed on Agents.
  • View completed Jobs, active Jobs, or Queued Jobs on for Agents.
  • Create custom Agent installers from the Software Library.
  • Automatically deploy Agent upgrades directly from GoAnywhere MFT.

C&DS Migration Utility

Version: 10.17.104

The following Updates are included in this version:

  • When Showcase 9 DBQ's are migrated that use JD Edwards Date Fields, an Alt Name is assigned/imported. This caused Viewpoint to interpret it as a derived field, and the JDE column headings are not displayed.
  • If a variable name contains an accented character (i.e. É, é, È, è, Ê, ê, Ë ) the letter will be converted without the accent.
  • Reports migrated whose database connection uses the Viewpoint driver either for Advanced Database Security or JDE, did not migrate well. Formatting attributes from the original report were missed.
  • JD Edwards Decimal fields are migrated with extra formatting that's not needed. This makes ViewPoint think that they are a derived field and the JDE column heading is not displayed correctly.
  • Improved migration of .rpt reports when PES file contains mixed data sources which prevents reports from being created without detail fields.
