Restrict an SFTP logins to a specfic folder
Need to have the ability to setup restrict an SFTP logins to a specific folder inside a website. For example, domain.com/orders/xmlfiles/. And if there is a way to restict that login to a specfic IP address that would be awesome.
I second @Maurizio on this. Since it's already possible to create multiple Application credentials there should be restrcition rules based on folders. Otherwise what would be the reason to create new application credentials if they all have the same access level?
Actually I can not give access to a developer that needs to fix one specific file within the application, without giving him also access to the whole application files (some files do even include the database credentials).
This is really important, we have a customer who uploads xml files daily to our ftp server. Now this software can access al files on the ftp server. Make all website files open to this software.
This is definitely something we need. We have a client who does automatic uploads of XML data using an auto yard software and the credentials need to point to a specific folder for these fiels to be uploaded properly.
We also need this option...
Yes this is utmost important.. It must be as basic function..
I am surprised that this isn't a major request. For a lot of the web development work I have done (online mapping applications) we provide access to content folders for users and not root access. This is currently something I need for 12 cloudways applications I am working on...
We need this too (not fussed about the IP restriction)
Use case: your application processes XML files provided by the client. The client can automate these files being generated and uploaded in their systems, but you want to give them FTP details that don't expose the rest of the application (and other applications).

Erik, think that this will be a too specific case but let's see what other people say. We have never had this request before.
