AWS Transfer Family now enables conditional workflows by publishing SFTP, FTPS, and FTP file transfer events to Amazon EventBridge in near real-time. You can use these event notifications to easily build and automate file transfer and file-processing workflows. Based on your need for flexibility and low code automation, Transfer Family support for EventBridge as well as existing managed workflows allows you to automate your Managed File Transfer (MFT) workloads.

AWS Transfer Family supports fully managed SFTP, FTPS, and FTP server endpoints to enable secure access to customers’ files stored in Amazon S3 and EFS. Amazon EventBridge is a serverless event bus that makes it easy to build event-driven applications by routing events between AWS services, third-parties and your own applications. With server events in Amazon EventBridge, you can now define granular triggers based on user identity or location for processing files and execute automated actions when a user downloads a file such as updating a tracking table or archiving the file. You can leverage EventBridge’s advanced filtering and routing capabilities to easily send file transfer events to over 25 targets including AWS Lambda, AWS Step Functions, and Amazon SNS. In addition to SFTP, FTPS, and FTP server endpoints, all AWS Transfer Family resources including SFTP connectors and AS2 profiles publish event notifications, enabling you to build event-driven MFT architectures in AWS. 

AWS Transfer Family support for publishing events in Amazon EventBridge is available in all AWS Regions where AWS Transfer Family is available. To learn more, visit the documentation.
