    Hello!

    Such functionality is not implemented in Plesk.

    SFTP works over SSH and subscription users are able to access all files of subscription.

    New features may be suggested here

    Sorry, to ask this simple question. I executed the command with john_doe and got no output. Is the name john_doe only a placeholder for a real name (customer) or is john_doe himself a real account? I mean, does john_doe already exist by perhaps Plesk or Ubuntu 18 or do I have a greater problem with permissions?

    Another important question is, which type of access is usually used by hosters? The first one (/bin/sh) or what do you suggest?

    Hello @Markus,

    john_doe is a placeholder, you should use the name of a subscription system user instead, it may be checked here:

    It depends on preferences, from my experience, the most common are:

    Forbidden, /bin/bash and /bin/bash (chrooted)
