With SSH modules in Make, you can execute commands on a remote server.

Make will connect to your SSH server from its IP addresses. Ensure you whitelist these IPs to allow connections to your remote server.

Establish the connection with SSH in Make

To establish the connection in Make:

  1. Log in to your Make account, add a SSH module to your scenario, and click Create a connection.

  2. Optional: In the Connection name field, enter a name for the connection.

  3. In the Host field, enter the host address of the server you want to connect.

  4. In the Post field, enter the SFTP server port. It must be a number between 1 and 65535. The default value is 22.

  5. In the Auth type dropdown list, select the authorization method you want to use for connecting to the SFTP server.

    • In the User name field, enter the user name that you use to enter the server.

    • Only for the User name and password auth type: In the Password field, enter the password that you use to enter the server.

    • Only for the User name and key auth type: In the Private key field, upload the private key to use the client-side authorization.


      Upload your certificate (P12, PFX, or PEM file) to use TLS using your self-signed certificate. If you use the client-side certificate authorization, you can enter your CA certificate here. Refer to our Help Center for more information.

  6. Optional: Set up an algorithm.
