How to change file permissions on Azure Web App

Hello, I'm having trouble changing the file permissions of my Azure Web App. When I try to use SFTP, I receive a 500 error, and using SSH has not been successful. Can someone provide guidance on how to change file permissions on an Azure Web App?

    Hello @Developer TeleCareIt Changing file permissions on Azure Web Apps directly through SFTP or SSH isn't supported, however, Azure Web Apps have a built-in management plane called Kudu. It provides a web interface for basic site management tasks, including changing file permissions. The URL for Kudu follows the format https://<your-app-name> Replace <your-app-name> with your actual web app name. You'll need your deployment credentials (username and password) to access Kudu. These can be retrieved from the Azure portal for your web app.

    • To Change File Permissions:
      • Once logged in to Kudu, navigate to the "Files" blade.
      • Locate the file or folder where you want to modify permissions.
      • Right-click on the file/folder and select "Permissions".
      • A dialog box will appear where you can adjust user/group permissions using checkboxes.

    Hope that helps.
