    The error "pty allocation request failed on channel 0" usually occurs when trying to establish an SSH connection with a server that doesn't support interactive sessions. Since you're using SFTP with Azure Blob Storage, you should use an SFTP client to transfer files instead of the SSH command.

    1. Install an SFTP client if you haven't already.
    2. Use the following command to connect to your Azure Blob Storage account:
    sftp -i <private_key> <username>@<sftp_endpoint>
    1. Once connected, you can use SFTP commands like put, get, ls, and cd to transfer files and navigate your Azure Blob Storage account.

    When you add a user you have the option to use password, keypair, or both. Instructions for setting this up can be found in the Configure permissions section here.
