FTP Advanced Action—Setting Properties

The FTP Advanced action is used to create custom FTP actions, that aren't included in the standard FTP actions. It could be used, for example, to move folders or files on an FTP server or to retrieve file listings.

You set properties by selecting a command and then entering any custom parameters required. When retrieving or sending data, you can populate a variable with the data. The Create Variable action must be used first to create the variable.
