Does Saviynt has SFTP server location to connect from other application and read csv files to process on their end? As we all know that Saviynt report api endpoints returns data into JSON object but not in csv file. 

Other app has feature to create connection SFTP location and read files to process them into their application.

Could you pls suggest us if saviynt has SFTP location? so that we can extract file from report and place it in csv file. Also, let me know what are the specific credentials other app config use to connect Saviynt SFTP location.

You can use saviynt REST API and convert JSON response in csv and push to target application

They have only options to read data from Saviynt that through API call and read file from any SFTP location by configuring connection at their end.  So we went with report API option and provided API auth and acess for them to receive file.

They don't have SFTP location to push it from our SFTP connector, otherwise we would have convert file into csv and placed in to their SFTP location through our SFTP connector. 

Is report API allow them to convert to csv from json when they execute report API call?  Sorry i didn't get your idea. Could you pls explain bit more details.

We don't have issue until converting to csv using Java code, but where to push from Saviynt? They don't have any API to call with csv as input to push from Java code or they don't have SFTP location to push from SFTP connector.

In this case you need sftp server of application supporting input file or response from saviynt

right, we olny have option to spin up SFTP server at client (our end) and provide server location and credentials to target app team. We have option to use inbuilt sftp feature on blob storage as SFTP location, so that saviynt and target app connect to that using SSH key cred's for push and pull operations.
