Connect to SFTP with SSH key

Currently App Connect supports SFTP with 'Username+Password' only. There are practical scenarios where we need to access SFTP sites with SSH key. Currently App Connect doesn't support this feature.

    Thank you for raising this enhancement request, and apologies for the length of time this idea has been under review. Unfortunately on this occasion we do not intend to take this idea forward. Note that we have an SFTP capability on ACE software which provides the capability use a Toolkit message flow node to send files via SFTP and authenticate either using "username + password" or an "SSH Identity File + passphrase". If this isn't quite what you're after then feel free to raise an enhancement for ACE software.
