“GoAnywhere MFT Experience” 

What do you like best about GoAnywhere MFT?

“Troubleshooting an issue is very easy in GoAnywhere MFT when compared to other applications because of the detailed logs available inside the application. It clearly explains when a particular user logged in, what action types that user performed, and other required information. I have been configuring AS2 and SFTP connections mostly, and the option of testing the Resource even before saving is helping a lot. Even the troubleshooting part is easy if the client says they are unable to connect to us. We can check the logs and see what is going wrong for the incoming requests. Also, the cloud connectors are easy to configure and are really helpful. Have used SharePoint connector, and it made life easy for posting the files from local path to Sharepoint path.”

What do you dislike about GoAnywhere MFT?

“For inbound connections requests, even though most of the time the error message explains the issue, there are times when it gives an error related to Java terminology and that is sometimes a bit hard to understand. It would be helpful if easily understood terminology is used everywhere. Also, for the common errors that could occur in connectivity, it would be helpful if there is a knowledge base article available on the GoAnywhere website or portal. Also, I couldn’t see the logs of changes made by admin user are shown anywhere inside the application. I couldn’t see what folders were deleted by a particular admin user in the Audit Logs section.”

What problems is GoAnywhere MFT solving, and how is that benefiting you?

“Troubleshooting the connectivity issues is easy here. Audit logs can be checked to see where it is going wrong. Also, finding out if a file was successfully sent or received can be easily identified now by using logs or completed jobs. Doing typical tasks like HTTPS post or get is also easy now because of the different resource options available.”

What problems is GoAnywhere MFT solving, and how is that benefiting you?

“GoAnywhere MFT is our enterprise solution for managed file transfers, and we use it for everything, including internal staff secure folders, both SFTP and web=based secure portals for internal and external customers, vendors, and employees. It allows us to use one product and connect to any and all storage resources that we need to have access to, and it allows us to move data and files from one resource type to another totally different resource seamlessly.”

“GoAnywhere surpasses expectations”

What do you like best about GoAnywhere MFT?

Their documentation alone is worth the price of admission 🙂 I haven’t seen documentation this good in a LONG time.”
