Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Service Description

AWS Transfer Family is a fully managed service that enables the transfer of files over the the File Transfer Protocol (FTP), File Transfer Protocol over SSL (FTPS), or Secure Shell (SSH) File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) directly into and out of Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). AWS helps you seamlessly migrate your file transfer workflows to AWS Transfer Family by integrating with existing authentication systems, and providing DNS routing with Amazon Route 53 so nothing changes for your customers and partners, or their applications. With your data in Amazon S3, you can use it with AWS services for processing, analytics, machine learning, and archiving. Getting started with AWS Transfer Family is easy since there is no infrastructure to buy and set up.

Sending a Request Using Transfer

var transfer = new AWS.Transfer();
transfer.createServer(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the Transfer object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var transfer = new AWS.Transfer({apiVersion: '2018-11-05'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the transfer service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  transfer: '2018-11-05',
  // other service API versions
};

var transfer = new AWS.Transfer();

  ]
};
transfer.createServer(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • Certificate — (String)

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) certificate. Required when Protocols is set to FTPS.

      To request a new public certificate, see Request a public certificate in the AWS Certificate Manager User Guide.

      To import an existing certificate into ACM, see Importing certificates into ACM in the AWS Certificate Manager User Guide.

      To request a private certificate to use FTPS through private IP addresses, see Request a private certificate in the AWS Certificate Manager User Guide.

      Certificates with the following cryptographic algorithms and key sizes are supported:

      • 2048-bit RSA (RSA_2048)

      • 4096-bit RSA (RSA_4096)

      • Elliptic Prime Curve 256 bit (EC_prime256v1)

      • Elliptic Prime Curve 384 bit (EC_secp384r1)

      • Elliptic Prime Curve 521 bit (EC_secp521r1)

      Note: The certificate must be a valid SSL/TLS X.509 version 3 certificate with FQDN or IP address specified and information about the issuer.
    • EndpointDetails — (map)

      The virtual private cloud (VPC) endpoint settings that are configured for your file transfer protocol-enabled server. When you host your endpoint within your VPC, you can make it accessible only to resources within your VPC, or you can attach Elastic IPs and make it accessible to clients over the internet. Your VPC's default security groups are automatically assigned to your endpoint.

      • AddressAllocationIds — (Array<String>)

        A list of address allocation IDs that are required to attach an Elastic IP address to your file transfer protocol-enabled server's endpoint. This is only valid in the UpdateServer API.

        Note: This property can only be use when EndpointType is set to VPC.
      • SubnetIds — (Array<String>)

        A list of subnet IDs that are required to host your file transfer protocol-enabled server endpoint in your VPC.

        Note: This property can only be used when EndpointType is set to VPC.
      • VpcEndpointId — (String)

        The ID of the VPC endpoint.

        Note: This property can only be used when EndpointType is set to VPC_ENDPOINT.
      • VpcId — (String)

        The VPC ID of the VPC in which a file transfer protocol-enabled server's endpoint will be hosted.

        Note: This property can only be used when EndpointType is set to VPC.
    • EndpointType — (String)

      The type of VPC endpoint that you want your file transfer protocol-enabled server to connect to. You can choose to connect to the public internet or a VPC endpoint. With a VPC endpoint, you can restrict access to your server and resources only within your VPC.

      Note: It is recommended that you use VPC as the EndpointType. With this endpoint type, you have the option to directly associate up to three Elastic IPv4 addresses (BYO IP included) with your server's endpoint and use VPC security groups to restrict traffic by the client's public IP address. This is not possible with EndpointType set to VPC_ENDPOINT.
      Possible values include:
      • "PUBLIC"
      • "VPC"
      • "VPC_ENDPOINT"
    • HostKey — (String)

      The RSA private key as generated by the ssh-keygen -N "" -m PEM -f my-new-server-key command.

      If you aren't planning to migrate existing users from an existing SFTP-enabled server to a new server, don't update the host key. Accidentally changing a server's host key can be disruptive.

      For more information, see Change the host key for your SFTP-enabled server in the AWS Transfer Family User Guide.

    • IdentityProviderDetails — (map)

      Required when IdentityProviderType is set to API_GATEWAY. Accepts an array containing all of the information required to call a customer-supplied authentication API, including the API Gateway URL. Not required when IdentityProviderType is set to SERVICE_MANAGED.

      • Url — (String)

        Provides the location of the service endpoint used to authenticate users.

      • InvocationRole — (String)

        Provides the type of InvocationRole used to authenticate the user account.

    • IdentityProviderType — (String)

      Specifies the mode of authentication for a file transfer protocol-enabled server. The default value is SERVICE_MANAGED, which allows you to store and access user credentials within the AWS Transfer Family service. Use the API_GATEWAY value to integrate with an identity provider of your choosing. The API_GATEWAY setting requires you to provide an API Gateway endpoint URL to call for authentication using the IdentityProviderDetails parameter.

      Possible values include:
      • "SERVICE_MANAGED"
      • "API_GATEWAY"
    • LoggingRole — (String)

      Allows the service to write your users' activity to your Amazon CloudWatch logs for monitoring and auditing purposes.

    • Protocols — (Array<String>)

      Specifies the file transfer protocol or protocols over which your file transfer protocol client can connect to your server's endpoint. The available protocols are:

      • SFTP (Secure Shell (SSH) File Transfer Protocol): File transfer over SSH

      • FTPS (File Transfer Protocol Secure): File transfer with TLS encryption

      • FTP (File Transfer Protocol): Unencrypted file transfer

      Note: If you select FTPS, you must choose a certificate stored in AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) which will be used to identify your server when clients connect to it over FTPS. If Protocol includes either FTP or FTPS, then the EndpointType must be VPC and the IdentityProviderType must be API_GATEWAY. If Protocol includes FTP, then AddressAllocationIds cannot be associated. If Protocol is set only to SFTP, the EndpointType can be set to PUBLIC and the IdentityProviderType can be set to SERVICE_MANAGED.
    • Tags — (Array<map>)

      Key-value pairs that can be used to group and search for file transfer protocol-enabled servers.

      • Keyrequired — (String)

        The name assigned to the tag that you create.

      • Valuerequired — (String)

        Contains one or more values that you assigned to the key name you create.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • ServerId — (String)

        The service-assigned ID of the file transfer protocol-enabled server that is created.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createUser(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Creates a user and associates them with an existing file transfer protocol-enabled server. You can only create and associate users with servers that have the IdentityProviderType set to SERVICE_MANAGED. Using parameters for CreateUser, you can specify the user name, set the home directory, store the user's public key, and assign the user's AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role. You can also optionally add a scope-down policy, and assign metadata with tags that can be used to group and search for users.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the createUser operation

var params = {
  Role: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  ServerId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  UserName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  HomeDirectory: 'STRING_VALUE',
  HomeDirectoryMappings: [
    {
      Entry: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
      Target: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
    },
    /* more items */
  ],
  HomeDirectoryType: PATH | LOGICAL,
  Policy: 'STRING_VALUE',
  SshPublicKeyBody: 'STRING_VALUE',
  Tags: [
    {
      Key: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
      Value: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
    },
    /* more items */
  ]
};
transfer.createUser(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • HomeDirectory — (String)

      The landing directory (folder) for a user when they log in to the file transfer protocol-enabled server using the client.

      An example is your-Amazon-S3-bucket-name>/home/username .

    • HomeDirectoryType — (String)

      The type of landing directory (folder) you want your users' home directory to be when they log into the file transfer protocol-enabled server. If you set it to PATH, the user will see the absolute Amazon S3 bucket paths as is in their file transfer protocol clients. If you set it LOGICAL, you will need to provide mappings in the HomeDirectoryMappings for how you want to make Amazon S3 paths visible to your users.

      Possible values include:
      • "PATH"
      • "LOGICAL"
    • HomeDirectoryMappings — (Array<map>)

      Logical directory mappings that specify what Amazon S3 paths and keys should be visible to your user and how you want to make them visible. You will need to specify the "Entry" and "Target" pair, where Entry shows how the path is made visible and Target is the actual Amazon S3 path. If you only specify a target, it will be displayed as is. You will need to also make sure that your IAM role provides access to paths in Target. The following is an example.

      '[ "/bucket2/documentation", { "Entry": "your-personal-report.pdf", "Target": "/bucket3/customized-reports/${transfer:UserName}.pdf" } ]'

      In most cases, you can use this value instead of the scope-down policy to lock your user down to the designated home directory ("chroot"). To do this, you can set Entry to '/' and set Target to the HomeDirectory parameter value.

      Note: If the target of a logical directory entry does not exist in Amazon S3, the entry will be ignored. As a workaround, you can use the Amazon S3 api to create 0 byte objects as place holders for your directory. If using the CLI, use the s3api call instead of s3 so you can use the put-object operation. For example, you use the following: aws s3api put-object --bucket bucketname --key path/to/folder/. Make sure that the end of the key name ends in a '/' for it to be considered a folder.
      • Entryrequired — (String)

        Represents an entry and a target for HomeDirectoryMappings.

      • Targetrequired — (String)

        Represents the map target that is used in a HomeDirectorymapEntry.

    • Policy — (String)

      A scope-down policy for your user so you can use the same IAM role across multiple users. This policy scopes down user access to portions of their Amazon S3 bucket. Variables that you can use inside this policy include ${Transfer:UserName}, ${Transfer:HomeDirectory}, and ${Transfer:HomeBucket}.

      Note: For scope-down policies, AWS Transfer Family stores the policy as a JSON blob, instead of the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the policy. You save the policy as a JSON blob and pass it in the Policy argument. For an example of a scope-down policy, see Creating a scope-down policy. For more information, see AssumeRole in the AWS Security Token Service API Reference.
    • Role — (String)

      The IAM role that controls your users' access to your Amazon S3 bucket. The policies attached to this role will determine the level of access you want to provide your users when transferring files into and out of your Amazon S3 bucket or buckets. The IAM role should also contain a trust relationship that allows the file transfer protocol-enabled server to access your resources when servicing your users' transfer requests.

    • ServerId — (String)

      A system-assigned unique identifier for a file transfer protocol-enabled server instance. This is the specific server that you added your user to.

    • SshPublicKeyBody — (String)

      The public portion of the Secure Shell (SSH) key used to authenticate the user to the file transfer protocol-enabled server.

    • Tags — (Array<map>)

      Key-value pairs that can be used to group and search for users. Tags are metadata attached to users for any purpose.

      • Keyrequired — (String)

        The name assigned to the tag that you create.

      • Valuerequired — (String)

        Contains one or more values that you assigned to the key name you create.

    • UserName — (String)

      A unique string that identifies a user and is associated with a file transfer protocol-enabled server as specified by the ServerId. This user name must be a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 32 characters long. The following are valid characters: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, underscore, and hyphen. The user name can't start with a hyphen.

stopServer(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Changes the state of a file transfer protocol-enabled server from ONLINE to OFFLINE. An OFFLINE server cannot accept and process file transfer jobs. Information tied to your server, such as server and user properties, are not affected by stopping your server. Stopping the server will not reduce or impact your file transfer protocol endpoint billing.

The state of STOPPING indicates that the server is in an intermediate state, either not fully able to respond, or not fully offline. The values of STOP_FAILED can indicate an error condition.

No response is returned from this call.

      Note: The certificate must be a valid SSL/TLS X.509 version 3 certificate with FQDN or IP address specified and information about the issuer.
    • EndpointDetails — (map)

      The virtual private cloud (VPC) endpoint settings that are configured for your file transfer protocol-enabled server. With a VPC endpoint, you can restrict access to your server to resources only within your VPC. To control incoming internet traffic, you will need to associate one or more Elastic IP addresses with your server's endpoint.

      • AddressAllocationIds — (Array<String>)

        A list of address allocation IDs that are required to attach an Elastic IP address to your file transfer protocol-enabled server's endpoint. This is only valid in the UpdateServer API.

        Note: This property can only be use when EndpointType is set to VPC.
      • SubnetIds — (Array<String>)

        A list of subnet IDs that are required to host your file transfer protocol-enabled server endpoint in your VPC.

        Note: This property can only be used when EndpointType is set to VPC.
      • VpcEndpointId — (String)

        The ID of the VPC endpoint.

        Note: This property can only be used when EndpointType is set to VPC_ENDPOINT.
      • VpcId — (String)

        The VPC ID of the VPC in which a file transfer protocol-enabled server's endpoint will be hosted.

        Note: This property can only be used when EndpointType is set to VPC.
    • EndpointType — (String)

      The type of endpoint that you want your file transfer protocol-enabled server to connect to. You can choose to connect to the public internet or a VPC endpoint. With a VPC endpoint, you can restrict access to your server and resources only within your VPC.

      Note: It is recommended that you use VPC as the EndpointType. With this endpoint type, you have the option to directly associate up to three Elastic IPv4 addresses (BYO IP included) with your server's endpoint and use VPC security groups to restrict traffic by the client's public IP address. This is not possible with EndpointType set to VPC_ENDPOINT.
      Possible values include:
      • "PUBLIC"
      • "VPC"
      • "VPC_ENDPOINT"
    • HostKey — (String)

      The RSA private key as generated by ssh-keygen -N "" -m PEM -f my-new-server-key.

      If you aren't planning to migrate existing users from an existing file transfer protocol-enabled server to a new server, don't update the host key. Accidentally changing a server's host key can be disruptive.

      For more information, see Change the host key for your SFTP-enabled server in the AWS Transfer Family User Guide.

    • IdentityProviderDetails — (map)

      An array containing all of the information required to call a customer's authentication API method.

        Provides the location of the service endpoint used to authenticate users.

      • InvocationRole — (String)

        Provides the type of InvocationRole used to authenticate the user account.

    • LoggingRole — (String)

      Changes the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that allows Amazon S3 events to be logged in Amazon CloudWatch, turning logging on or off.

    • Protocols — (Array<String>)

      Specifies the file transfer protocol or protocols over which your file transfer protocol client can connect to your server's endpoint. The available protocols are:

      • Secure Shell (SSH) File Transfer Protocol (SFTP): File transfer over SSH

      • File Transfer Protocol Secure (FTPS): File transfer with TLS encryption

      • File Transfer Protocol (FTP): Unencrypted file transfer

      Note: If you select FTPS, you must choose a certificate stored in AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) which will be used to identify your server when clients connect to it over FTPS. If Protocol includes either FTP or FTPS, then the EndpointType must be VPC and the IdentityProviderType must be API_GATEWAY. If Protocol includes FTP, then AddressAllocationIds cannot be associated. If Protocol is set only to SFTP, the EndpointType can be set to PUBLIC and the IdentityProviderType can be set to SERVICE_MANAGED.
    • ServerId — (String)

      A system-assigned unique identifier for a file transfer protocol-enabled server instance that the user account is assigned to.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • ServerId — (String)

        A system-assigned unique identifier for a file transfer protocol-enabled server that the user account is assigned to.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

updateUser(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Assigns new properties to a user. Parameters you pass modify any or all of the following: the home directory, role, and policy for the UserName and ServerId you specify.

The response returns the ServerId and the UserName for the updated user.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the updateUser operation

var params = {
  ServerId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  UserName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  HomeDirectory: 'STRING_VALUE',
  HomeDirectoryMappings: [
    {
      Entry: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
      Target: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
    },
    /* more items */
  ],
  HomeDirectoryType: PATH | LOGICAL,
  Policy: 'STRING_VALUE',
  Role: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
transfer.updateUser(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • HomeDirectory — (String)

      Specifies the landing directory (folder) for a user when they log in to the file transfer protocol-enabled server using their file transfer protocol client.

      An example is your-Amazon-S3-bucket-name>/home/username.

    • HomeDirectoryType — (String)

      The type of landing directory (folder) you want your users' home directory to be when they log into the file transfer protocol-enabled server. If you set it to PATH, the user will see the absolute Amazon S3 bucket paths as is in their file transfer protocol clients. If you set it LOGICAL, you will need to provide mappings in the HomeDirectoryMappings for how you want to make Amazon S3 paths visible to your users.

      Possible values include:
      • "PATH"
      • "LOGICAL"
    • HomeDirectoryMappings — (Array<map>)

      Logical directory mappings that specify what Amazon S3 paths and keys should be visible to your user and how you want to make them visible. You will need to specify the "Entry" and "Target" pair, where Entry shows how the path is made visible and Target is the actual Amazon S3 path. If you only specify a target, it will be displayed as is. You will need to also make sure that your IAM role provides access to paths in Target. The following is an example.

      '[ "/bucket2/documentation", { "Entry": "your-personal-report.pdf", "Target": "/bucket3/customized-reports/${transfer:UserName}.pdf" } ]'

      In most cases, you can use this value instead of the scope-down policy to lock your user down to the designated home directory ("chroot"). To do this, you can set Entry to '/' and set Target to the HomeDirectory parameter value.

      Note: If the target of a logical directory entry does not exist in Amazon S3, the entry will be ignored. As a workaround, you can use the Amazon S3 api to create 0 byte objects as place holders for your directory. If using the CLI, use the s3api call instead of s3 so you can use the put-object operation. For example, you use the following: aws s3api put-object --bucket bucketname --key path/to/folder/. Make sure that the end of the key name ends in a / for it to be considered a folder.
      • Entryrequired — (String)

        Represents an entry and a target for HomeDirectoryMappings.

      • Targetrequired — (String)

        Represents the map target that is used in a HomeDirectorymapEntry.

    • Policy — (String)

      Allows you to supply a scope-down policy for your user so you can use the same IAM role across multiple users. The policy scopes down user access to portions of your Amazon S3 bucket. Variables you can use inside this policy include ${Transfer:UserName}, ${Transfer:HomeDirectory}, and ${Transfer:HomeBucket}.

      Note: For scope-down policies, AWS Transfer Family stores the policy as a JSON blob, instead of the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the policy. You save the policy as a JSON blob and pass it in the Policy argument. For an example of a scope-down policy, see Creating a scope-down policy. For more information, see AssumeRole in the AWS Security Token Service API Reference.
    • Role — (String)

      The IAM role that controls your users' access to your Amazon S3 bucket. The policies attached to this role will determine the level of access you want to provide your users when transferring files into and out of your Amazon S3 bucket or buckets. The IAM role should also contain a trust relationship that allows the file transfer protocol-enabled server to access your resources when servicing your users' transfer requests.

    • ServerId — (String)

      A system-assigned unique identifier for a file transfer protocol-enabled server instance that the user account is assigned to.

    • UserName — (String)

      A unique string that identifies a user and is associated with a file transfer protocol-enabled server as specified by the ServerId. This is the string that will be used by your user when they log in to your server. This user name is a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 32 characters long. The following are valid characters: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, underscore, and hyphen. The user name can't start with a hyphen.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.
