You can run a workflow on the vRealize Orchestrator Client to copy files from an SSH host to the vRealize Orchestrator server.

The SSH plug-in uses the Java JCraft library, which implements SFTP. The SCP get command workflow transfers files by using SFTP.


Verify that the user account you are logged in with has the necessary permissions to run SSH workflows.

Note: vRealize Orchestrator must have explicit write permissions to write in folders.


  1. Log in to the vRealize Orchestrator Client.
  2. Navigate to Library > Workflows and enter the ssh tag in the workflow search box.
  3. Locate the SCP get command workflow and click Run.
  4. On the Host tab, enter the source host information.
    1. Enter an SSH host name or IP address.
    2. Enter the SSH user name and password.
  5. On the File tab, enter the file information.
    1. Enter the path to the file to get from the remote SSH host.
    2. Enter the path to the directory on the vRealize Orchestrator server into which to copy the file.
  6. Click Run.
