The SFTP Synapse enables data synchronization between your server hosted CSV files and Syncari entities. This Synapse can be only used as a source in your pipelines.

IP Allow List

Syncari's servers are set to this IP Address:


SFTP Configuration

On your server you need to create a syncari folder that will include other subfolders - one for each entity you want to connect to syncari (contacts, accounts, leads, etc.). 


The SFTP schema will be defined by the folders and the header names of csv files stored in each folder. Add a csv file to each subfolder where the first row includes column names that represents the field names the entity.


We also recommend these connection settings be configured on your SFTP server.

ClientAliveInterval 60
TCPKeepAlive yes
