The camel-jsch component supports the SCP protocol using the Client API of the Jsch project. Jsch is already used in camel by the FTP component for the sftp: protocol.

Name Description Example Default Value
username Specifies the username to use to log in to the remote file system. null
password Specifies the password to use to log in to the remote file system. null

chmod Allows you to set chmod on the stored file. For example chmod=664. null
