App Service folder access in Azure with ftp

SilvaPaulaD 56 Reputation points

I have an app Service in Azure that contains folders and files.

Via FileZilla, I can reach the file structure. I have a 3rd party vendor that needs to upload files to a specific folder.

I can create an FTP with access to all content on the app service. But is it possible to limit the user's access to only one folder or a specific drive that my app service can reach? Ideally, a subfolder under wwwroot\content.

    @SilvaPaulaD Thanks for your patience on this.

    I have checked with App Service Engineering team and sharing the below.

    This isn’t possible with the App Service provided FTP endpoint.  The App Service platform supports FTP primarily as a mechanism for deploying website content onto App Service. As a result, it isn’t built as a generalized FTP-as-a-service offering with concepts like per-folder ACL’ing.

    Feel free to reach back to me if you have any further questions on this.
