SSH / SFTP users are essential for managing containers’ application, configuration and log files. You can create, edit and remove users for containers at any time and the changes will automatically be deployed.

Each SSH / SFTP user’s access can vary in important ways, giving you control the scope of access.

  • A user can be given access to just one container or many, which impacts privileges.
  • You can give users access to just Volumes.
  • You you can control whether a user has read or write access to config files.

In most scenarios we recommend each user is scoped to one container only, and we always recommend using SSH Keys rather than passwords.
