I can see SFTP on Blob stores are now available in General availability, but the documentation states a pre-requisite is that the Hierarchical Namespace is enabled. SFTP is in the Standard general-purpose v2 feature list, but when looking at how to implement, the information to enable Hierarchical Namespace links to Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2. Does this mean that Hierarchical Namespace is not available in Standard general-purpose v2 Blob storage accounts?

    @Mi Lin Man Welcome to Microsoft Q&A, Thank you for posting your here!!

    To enable SFTP, 'hierarchical namespace' must be enabled.
