Enabling FTPS for function apps and web apps

JKFrancis 31 Reputation points

We have a situation with a SaaS application where in Azure Advisor it is asking us to enable FTPS for both Web Apps and Function Apps. Our concern is that if I specifically change this to be FTPS then will it break something? The company is not willing to help us unless we pay for it even though this is a simple question for them to answer that either something will break or nothing will break. But, they want to charge us to provide that answer.

There is no info on their website about this. So, how can we address this. If we enable it and it breaks then we will have to open a case with them and wait for them to get back.

So, any suggestions?

    @JKFrancis ,

    Thanks for reaching out to Q&A.

    The FTP/S endpoint for your app is already active. This is the default setting and no configuration is necessary to enable FTP/S deployment. You can either disable FTP or force Fts/S only setting.


    I am assuming you have disabled this setting earlier and you would like to enable now. FTP/S in App service/Functions is only used for deployment and file access purposes. Also there is a different server used for FTP access so that it doesnt fiddle with the incoming http traffic of the App service/Function app. Enabling FTP/S shouldnt break any functionlity.


    I hope this helps!
