You can look at Scott Klement's website for using Expect and sFTP which
relates to pExpect.

BTW we are using RSA keys and not userid/passw for authentication.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Re: Checking for sftp errors

We have done extensive error checking of sFTP routines.

Our routines run in PASE (QP2BATCH) and are driven by a Python pgm using
pExpect.

This gives us granular control of all aspects of the sFTP session.

We also utilize standard error for BASH errors.

These routines are run from a CL wrapper so we get feedback as to any
errors.

I think the only real way is to query the (error) output of the sftp command ...

Did you consider to forward the sftp (QSH command) errors to an IFS-file? Just add "2> /ifs/path/errors.txt" to the command in PASE.
Or you can forward the QSH output to a file. Use Envvar QIBM_QSH_CMD_OUTPUT ([1][4]https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.4?topic=qshell-running-commands-from-cl<https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.4?topic=qshell-running-commands-from-cl>)
Or you write a PASE shell script that handles your sftp and all the errors... ([2][5]https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.4?topic=qshell-pdf-file<https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.4?topic=qshell-pdf-file>)

Subject: Checking for sftp errors

Hi everyone
Before I forget, we are on V7r3
I have created a CLLE program using sftp to transfer files from an external system, into the iSeries This works on our development system This has now been transferred/promoted into our production system, but it is reporting that there are errors Looking at the log - the only thing that I can see is that (at this moment) there are no files to transfer. For the next month or so - that is possible The program creates a script (using mget), and upon execution of that script checks for error in the following way
/* perform sftp */
QSH CMD(&COMMAND)
MONMSG MSGID(QSH0000) EXEC(DO)

I realize that using QSH0000 is ALL encompassing, so my question is - does anyone have a "better" way of capturing sftp errors
