Either a required configuration field is missing, or it has an invalid value.


The error message tells us that the field with a missing or invalid value is 'File Name Prefix'. So we go to the 'Destination Settings' tab and verify that the field has a value, but it's outlined in red:

The reason is that Integration Center does not accept special characters (except for '_') in this field. This is stated in the following page of the Integration Center handbook: Integration Center: SFTP Settings.


Make sure all the required fields are filled with valid values.
