Best way to transfer files to Appian from a External system

We wanted to send documents to Appian from a External system with metadata of the document.

Which is the best practice

  1. Using SFTP?(Putting a DOC and its Metadata file  at SFTP location)
  2. Using S3 bucket (AWS)(Uploading the file from the external system and sending uploaded fileid+metadata as API input to Appian to download the same)

  • I believe either or should be fine, We have used a mixture of both, where we transfer files out of Appian using SFTP, then bring documents back to Appian not necessarily using (AWS), our files are stored locally, but using the same approach where we send the uploaded fileid + metadata as API input.
