Zynk Workflow Documentation

All of the tasks in the Amazon Vendor Central Connector require a connection to Amazon’s upload or download SFTP location. You will need to create a connection with the type ‘Amazon Vendor Central Download’ or ‘Amazon Vendor Central Upload’, depending on which task you are using. See Connection Manager for instructions on creating a new connection. You will see a screen like the one below regardless of which of the two connection types was selected, requesting your SFTP details:

Amazon Vendor Central Connection

Enter the SFTP details Amazon provided during the Basic Setup process as described below, then click ‘Finish’ to create the connection. Note that Amazon will provide you with a set of 4 SFTP accounts, for uploading and downloading both test and live data. You can enter the details for each one by repeating this process.



The SFTP username provided by Amazon.

Private Key File

You will also have generated a public/private key pair using a tool (such as puttygen). Save the private key which corresponds to the public key you provided to Amazon, and enter the file path here.


If you have password protected the private key file, enter the password here.


The SFTP directory to upload/download files from. You will have chosen this as part of the EDI Self Service setup process. This is set to Amazon’s default directory when you first create the connection.
