Removing deprecated scp command

July 17, 2016   |  Vas Vasiliadis

Late last year we deprecated the scp command in the Globus command line interface (CLI), and provided features in the transfer command for parity. In the nine months since it was deprecated, most users have moved to using the transfer command and there is little use of the scp command.

We plan to remove the deprecated scp command on August 31, 2016. and users will need to use the transfer command when transferring files via the CLI. You can find syntax and documentation for the transfer command at

Please contact if you have any questions or need assistance with migrating to the transfer command.
