  • Is it possible to restrict the access of a specific user to selected SFTP folders?
  • How can I restrict access to SFTP folders for specific users?

  • At this time it is not possible to prevent users from accessing specific SFTP folders.
  • Users can access the SFTP Account by Username/Password or through SSH access (Public/Private keys); however, once the user is authenticted into the SFTP Account, there is no further restriction possible based on individual folders.
