SSH/SFTP accounts management

Management of SSH/SFTP accounts that are needed to access the server via SSH (terminal) or SFTP (graphical interface) is a part of the MyCloud functionality. Here you can create a personal account for each of your developers - we don't recommend creating meta-users (such as “developers” or “supportteam”) through this functionality.

Create a new SSH/SFTP account

  1. Open the required Project in the MyCloud Dashboard and click the SSH/SFTP users button (1⃣) ssh/sftp users manage
  2. Type in the Username (:two): and select the Period (3⃣) of the access (after this period access will be removed automatically) and click Create (4⃣) ssh/sftp users create
  3. In several minutes you will receive a personal email with access credentials. This email will be sent to the E-Mail address linked to the MyCloud admin account.


The username must contain only lowercase letters and numbers.

Active SSH/SFTP accounts management

You can manage the created SSH/SFTP accounts via the SSH/SFTP users menu. The active SSH/SFTP users are listed in the Action logs (1⃣) list. You can reset the password for a certain user by clicking Reset (2⃣) (the new password will be sent to an E-Mail linked to the MyCloud admin account) or Remove the certain user by clicking Remove (3⃣).
