Enable chrooted sftp for more than one user per account
If I use FTP, I can make as many users as I want. For various reasons, using FTP is not optimal at my workplace. I'd like to be able to let each ftp user I create log in with chrooted sftp.
I'm able to modify /etc/passwd and /var/www/vhosts/example.org/etc/passwd to make it work, but doing that manually kind of defeats the point of using a tool like Plesk...
Specifically, I give the ftp user the same home directory, and shell as the initial sftp user has in each passwd file.
This is a valid request, so we’ll look into it. There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features.
The original request contains a manual solution, so, we consider to automate it. Please, add a comment if your case will not be solved with that solution.
Thanks in advance!

A realy important feature.
A realy important feature.
+1 for this request. This missing feature combined with only being able to provide SSH to the system user for a domain, is one of the biggest weaknesses of Plesk. It is extremely limiting for DevOps and CI tools, not to mention that SFTP is vastly preferred over FTP w TLS/SSL.
I nearly breaked my bones trying to implement an additional sftp user. It did not came to my mind that this is just not there in plesk. Now, I read there is a request since years. I would appriciate this function coming to live very much.
open since almost 7 years now?

cPanel doesn't provide this either. Additional users are virtual FTP users. This is needed.
I agree, that's a basic function and a must have in Plesk!
i need this - this is basic funcionality and very very necessary, why is not impmented yet?

... one more
It's absolutely crazy this ftp feature becomes more than necessary and useful
Sean Bartlett commented
For what reason have you not yet implemented sftp. The Middle Ages are long behind us!
Implement sftp quickly for all existing ftp users!
Every feature I need looks like already are waiting on UserVoice portal.
I have bad luck these days, I guess.

Why you do not fix this why it is so important issue why no do this?
Tap tap tap...this thing on?
Yeah, it's a really sad state. They raised license costs and basic security features like this don't get implemented for years. I am migrating all my servers away from plesk as their focus seems to be milking the cow with (additonally paid) extensions.

COME ON! It's been almost SEVEN YEARS since this thread started 😡
Time to make this request come true!

Yes, ESSENTIAL !! Why have no feedback on this feature ???? I have to migrate our customers to other solutions such that FTP is no longer suitable for our time. Thank you everyone for putting a new comment, even if it has already been done. We really need to flood this topic with messages. Thank you all.
I think this topic does not neet votes - it is essential!
This feature is NECESSARY, period.
