So I'm creating a reporting definition to run in an automation. I would like the report to be .pgp encrypted and dropped onto the SFTP. The reporting definition in Marketing Cloud allows a drop onto the SFTP, but I don't see anywhere where you can encrypt a report. Is there some automation studio function that performs encryption on reports on the SFTP, or is it possible to encrypt on the send from Marketing Cloud?

Use a File Transfer Activity in Automation Studio:

Create a file transfer activity to move, unzip, encrypt, or decrypt a file in Marketing Cloud Automation Studio.

  1. Click Create Activity.
  2. Select File Transfer.
  3. Provide a name, external key, and description.
  4. Complete the fields on the Properties page.
  5. Select Manage File or Move a File From Safehouse.

  • But does the file automatically go to the safehouse as well as the SFTP when you export it to SFTP? Commented Feb 27, 2020 at 16:12
