Resolution:

To Transfer Large Files to Oracle B2C Service Technical Support

While you can attach comparatively small files to single incidents, there may be some situations where Technical Support might need you to provide a much larger file or files, i.e. tables from your database. After zipping up your file, please use the steps below to provide such files.

  1. Using a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) client, connect to ftp.rightnowtech.com. 

  2. Log in as "anonymous", and use your full email address as the password. 

  3. Change directories to the "incoming" directory. For example, for command line clients use: cd incoming
     
    Note: You are unable to view any existing files at this location. 

  4. Upload the file 
     
    For example, for command line clients enter: put file.txt 

  5. Exit from the FTP connection. 

  6. Update your incident and provide the file name to your Oracle B2C Service contact so that they can easily access the file.

To Access Files from Oracle B2C Service Technical Support

Technical Support may provide large files for you via FTP, which you can download via FTP. With regard to the file transfer, we will provide you a URL that you can access from a browser. From the URL, you will see the name(s) of the file(s) to download.
