Hello Clement, Peter,

to enter a password, you can use the procedure


from the library qfs.qft (included in all test-suites by default). That is, you may try something like this:

 +Sequence: File transfer
     client: cmd
   +Execute shell command: scp user@host:/my/file /dest/path [$(client)]
   +Call procedure: qfs.client.sendInput
       input: password
       addNewline: true
   +Wait for process to terminate [$(client)]
       Timeout: 30000

Best regards,

in similar cases I add the following option to the ssh command:
-o BatchMode=yes

Prerequisite: the test user/host must be configured in the target's .ssh
directory (known hosts, authorized keys) so that the login does not
require a password. If this does not work the ssh command with the above
option returns with an error message instead of waiting for password

Hello all,

In my project I need to retrieve various files from the server to
analyze them with QFT. I am working on how I can get them from the
server. I didn't succeed with scp since the module is not recognized in
the Jython script embarked in QFT. I tried then the following script:
import os

The command is well interpreted but the password is required to finalize
the connection and I don't know how I can pass it.

Any ideas?
