Is there a way to trigger a script once a file has been uploaded to an sftp directory, on an Ubuntu based server?
I was looking to see if there was a notion of ah ssh-trigger or ssh-hook, but I haven't been able to find anything that is ssh specific. The closest I have found is simply to watch the sftp folder via:
inotifywait -m /path -e create -e moved_to | while read dir action file; do echo "The file '$file' appeared in directory '$dir' via '$action'" # do something with the file done
While I could use this approach, it would be nice to see something that is more specific to sftp.
