comment How to implement application that will connect to server allowing the server to request data
With approach 2 there shouldn't be a need for a tunnel as I'm picturing connecting rabbitmq directly over the internet, not via any other tunnel.

comment How to implement application that will connect to server allowing the server to request data
Approach 1: Since reports can be generated ad-hoc, polling the sftp server every second doesn't seem like a scalable solution. Approach 2: As I mentioned in my question, this is about the only solution I've come across, I'm looking for alternatives. Approach 3: That is more or less what we are currently doing that I'm trying to get away from.

@JamesYoungman Reports are both ad-hoc and scheduled. We need an always available connection.

@BenCottrell I've worked with RabbitMQ in the past so I do have a bit of experience. One concern is the security of having RabbitMQ internet accessible. I'm interested in alternatives as this is literally about the only solution I've come across online.

@thorstenmüller With an SSH tunnel, there would still need to be some kind of process to ensure that it stays open. One concern would be scalability. We currently access around 50 different SQL Server instances and that will continue to grow as we gain popularity.

comment API Authentication, One time token VS Dynamic tokens
Maybe I'm missing something... but why not use OAuth as the authentication mechanism? It is standard and there are going to be libraries for your clients to use in about every language.
