Why is it that we don't get a status code 0 on Gets commands? It seems like we used to. Here's a log from some testing where the file was transfered successfully but no "0"

Status code 1 is end of file. So it is ok.

So I can assume with a status code 1 that the transmission was successful?

Well, you shouldn't assume anything from the SFTP status codes, unless you learn SFTP protocol.

So from an automation stand point, what piece of information can I have my application search for to determine that the file was transfered successfully? The "put" transfers all return a status code: 0 when it is successful, why doesn't the "get"?

Okay maybe I'm just not getting something here..and I apologize for I guess being an idiot.

Here's the XML from a run.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<session xmlns="https://winscp.net/schema/session/1.0" name="UC4" start="2011-01-21T15:41:02.959Z">
<download>
<filename value="/get_testing1.txt" />
<destination value="C:\Users\me\Desktop\get_testing1.txt" />
<result success="true" />
</download>
</session>


To me this looks good.... <result success="true" />


However, when I then change the logging to txt and use the same session and get the same file (after I've deleted the file on my local machine) the txt log shows a status code of 1.

So why am I still getting a status code of 1 when the XML shows a success?

I've also run this 2 more times using the debug level 1 & 2 of logging and I don't see an error in either one, but then again I might just not know what I'm looking for.

I'm sorry, but I'm not going to teach you SFTP protocol specification. If you are curious read it yourself Smile As a user, you do not need to bother about the SFTP status codes.

Also I do not understand your point about the error. Why do you expect to see any errors in the logs?

I guess I expect to see an error because of this statement...

Checking Results
WinSCP returns exit code 1, when any command is interrupted due to an error or any prompt is answered Abort (even automatically in batch mode). Otherwise it returns the exit code 0. To further analyze results of scripted operations, you will find XML logging useful.


To me that says that an exit code of 1 will be shown in the log when there's an error or when you've select "abort" on a prompt. Otherwise on a fully successful transmission, the exit code will be 0.

Essentially all I'm looking for is a way to tell my automated process that this tranmission was successful. Like..
Status code: 0
Transfer Successful

Even the integrated FTP in Windows says "Transfer complete" in its logs.

I do appreciate any help you can provide on this.

That's correct. But application exit code cannot be logged into its log file. Simply because the log file is already closed by the time application exits. And exit code is not SFTP status code.
