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!
Please add this feature!

This feature is so important, please do this asap!
In times where HTTPS develops towards the standard protocol for websites I can't understand why FTPS/SFTP is not also the default for safe file-transfer to hostings.

This has caused us lots of problems for a while with some horrible work arounds in place involving subdomains and then scripts syncing files around.
An update to give this freedom would be really welcomed!
An odd restriction that needs to be resolved Causes real practical issues.
this is a very important feature. so please add it!
Please add this ...
Please implement this. How is this even not in Plesk yet?
Implementation of this feature would be extremely helpful!
Not having this really sucks!
Come on Plesk! listen to the features that people are crying out for.... This is a must have in this day and age! This request has been open for nearly two years and still not implemented
Please implement it...
Please implement this! The workaround is working, however, users added this way can see all the domains on the server... They cannot access them, but still see them. And this is a risk.
This really needs to be implemented asap as we have clients starting to (correctly) not let us use the FTP protocol as it's insecure.
Ill up vote this update... we are losing security by allowing FTP connections.... so as to have multiple accounts per domain
YES, do it and then do something for the chrooted situation...
