    Transmit Payment File manually
    Transmit Payment File manually


    Due to some misconfiguration, the payment file was not automatically transmitted to the SFTP drive we set up.

    This is our normal set up, but some setup was missing. Currently the payment files have a status of 'Formatted'.

    Is there a way to manually trigger the transmission?

    There is a privilege 'IBY_TRANSMIT_PAYMENT_FILE_PRIV' that is assigned by default to the role 'Accounts Payable Payment Supervisor'. My user has this. But there is no way to manually find the 'Transmit Payment File' in the scheduled processes.

    Neither is there any option in the pages available to push this through to transmission.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes you are correct, it is only automated during the Payment Process Request Cycle otherwise the "User Manually transmits it".

      Yes you can manually create the payment file by navigating to Payables > Payments > Create Electronic Payment Files.  There is also an option for check and positive pay files.  You can then select your Payment Process Profile from the dropdown.

      I have provided screen prints below,

        I'm not sure where my comment went. I swear I had commented on your post.

        The problem is not to create the payment file. It is already created & formatted. It's just not transmitted.

        I'm looking into how to only TRANSMIT the file (which is already created), to the shared drive we had set up.

      Well the file is outside of Cloud Payables so Cloud cannot initiate for you so you would have to use your own SFTP server, contact your sysadmin about sending files out to the bank  or contact the bank.

        Hi. I am not sure you understand. The file is generated by cloud, in cloud. It is just not sent ('transmitted') to my sftp server.
    • Becky Alvarez

      Yes I did.  You should be able to go to the Generate Log file and at the bottom, you should see the log file and you should be able to click on the file name and click on Republish. It should give you the option, at that point to choose a format and then you should be able to open it and/or save it.

        Hi Becky,

        I can download the payment file and put it manually on the SFTP just fine.

        My question is, can I select a process to 'Transmit Payment File' of this specific payment process request. I guess not, since this process is not selectable through 'Scheduled Processes' (it is automatically triggered by the Payment Process Request cycle though).
