SSH-SFTP connector is taking very long time to create/download the file

Hi All,


I need a help in SSH-SFTP connectors.

I have created a flow that gets the files from Azure blob storage and upload in SFTP using SSH-SFTP connector. The file size is less than a KB however it is taking huge time (more than an hour) and then I had to cancel the execution of workflow.


Below is the workflow designer –




Below is execution details:




Same situation arise when the files are to be retrieved from SFTP and save to Azure blob. The SSH-SFTP Action “List files in folder” is executed within a second however getting the file content and saving to Blob is not fruitful (each file is not more than 10KB).



Can anyone please advise possible resolution to get this work properly? I used another framework such as WinSCP or FileZilla and there it works smoothly.


Any pointers will be much appreciated.

Hello @bharatmalviya 

I am facing a slow operation for sftp-ssh. I have the same problem on two different sftp servers. The sftp servers are fast but the Flow is taking too long to get the files...


Have you got any response for this, or were you able to solve the issue?


Thank you,

@OzgurKarabenli The issue was fixed without any rectification. However, I've used another approach and didn't use Power automate for the purpose.
