Is it possible to restrict the access of an SFTP account to a certain folder/directory?

1 Answer 1


That is not possible. The way to restrict / split Marketing Cloud FTP access is by setting up up to three separate FTP accounts per BU in Setup.

  • This will still not differentiate between folders. Different FTP users still have access to the same structure. Oct 28, 2020 at 14:22
  • Sure, that is what I meant with "That is not possible". But help me understand now, maybe I'm on the wrong track. The different accounts, will they see the same folder content? Oct 28, 2020 at 17:01
  • That’s correct @JonasLamberty - there is no separation of folders and data. So they all see the same content in e.g. import and export folders. Oct 28, 2020 at 17:06
  • interesting. then i wonder what the point of having three accounts is, is it only for SSH? Oct 28, 2020 at 17:10
  • You can revoke access for a single user, without replacing credentials in all integrated systems. Might be good when providing temporary access Oct 28, 2020 at 21:59
