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!
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...
Pleas add SFTP

I'd also like to see this happen. Personally I'd like it if there was a separate button next to FTP Access e.g. SFTP Users with the option to set the home directory for each user.
There would also need to be a limit on subscription level to how many SFTP users can be created to ensure reasonable usage.
Then developers would benefit a lot by being able to use sshfs.
There seems to be a related request as well https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/5030867-enable-chrooted-sftp-for-more-than-one-user-per-ac
Needs to be implemented ASAP.
The Feature should be essentially, especially in a version 12 from a product
This essential feature is needed asap, please add!
I second this request. Very much needed!
