Linking SSH/SFTP users to containers


Linking SSH/SFTP users to containers

Last updated February 10th, 2016

When creating or updating a SSH user you will be required to choose one or more containers that you wish to grant the user access to. This allows you to easily use the same SSH user across multiple containers without having to create multiple users.

Users that are created as part of the container creation process will automatically have access to the new container being created.

It is important to note that assigning multiple containers to a user will affect the number of commands that are available to the user. For more information on this, please see our article on SSH User Privileges.

Modifying the linked containers for a SSH user

Modifying the linked containers for a SSH user can be easily achieved by following the steps below:

  1. Ensure that any active SSH sessions for the user you wish to modify have been terminated.

  2. Navigate to the 'Containers' module and click the 'SSH & SFTP' button in the upper navigation bar:

    SSH Users

  3. Select the user in the list that you wish to modify:

    Remove SSH User

  4. Click inside the 'Containers' field to add additional containers or use the crosses alongside existing containers to remove them:

    Edit Containers

  5. When you're done selecting containers, click the "Save Changes" button to begin updating the user. When the progress indicator disappears from alongside the user, the user is ready to be used again:
