Issue:

Trying to move multiple specific files using an SFTP WOB. According to the manual we should be able to specify multiple filenames in LOCALFILENAME and REMOTEFILENAME and separating them with a semi colon. We have tried a few different combinations of file names (always specified equally in both statements) and keep getting the following error message back from the agent: 
"Invalid AFM. Precisely single local and remote names must be supplied" 
There is no spool file created when we attempt it and it fails with a code 0. The job is coming from ESP and it will simulate with no errors.

Cause:

This function is not supported for SFTP job types.

Resolution:

The semi-colon semantic could be used in the FTP job type;  However in the SFTP it is not supported. It is possible to use wildcards for SFTP jobs.
