SFTP Get and Delete Operation

How does the SFTP Get and Delete operation work when there are multiple files to be deleted? I have an SFTP Get and Delete operation working fine in test environment with file filter and remote directory parameters set on the connector. The Get and Delete happens fine in a test sftp server where it deletes the files(Document property)  from the Remote directory ( Process property)  configured on the connection parameters. In production , the operation always deletes the first file in SFTP directory and does not delete the rest. It throws an error  - Unexpected error executing process: com.boomi.connector.ConnectorException: Error executing sftp command: Specified file path is invalid



Added a logger before the connector to verify the values of the properties in sftp connector params. values are valid and are the ones i want to get deleted. To eventually resolve this , had to add a Flow control right before the connector to process the documents individually.


I would assume Get and Delete works the same way irrespective of the number of documents, but would this be a config on the SFTP server side , since it is working in a lower environment on a different server. The only difference between the two sftp servers being that the one which throw an error uses an SSH based authentication
