Hi All

I'm trying to set up an SFTP Connection but not with hard coded information.

We are receiving files from multiple 3rd parties.  Some use our own SFTP Site I can access via a network share but some use their own SFTP sites.  I don't want to set up several Connections Objects if at all possible because we have no control over the 3rd party.  We get told the connection details and the password could change.

In order to make the automated system as user friendly as possible we store all the credentials in a DB that I can read from Automic.  However in Automic it appears that the Connect Object cannot be specified with variable (&Host# for example) 

Is there a way I can create a connection object in script & then throw it away when finished with?
