    Thanks for the feedback! We are interested in collecting feedback on this request – please vote for it if this is something you like to see.

    We’re also interested in learning more what people want to use the SFTP/FTPS for and which protocol they prefer. Please feel free to leave us a comment letting us know more detail!

    Thanks,

    This would be big for the *many* dev tools that already allow interaction through FTP, whereas currently, to work with Azure requires a whole new mechanism built into whatever that tool is. For instance: Gulp.js. https://github.com/gulpjs/gulp/issues/465 There's a way to sync files that have changed to a remote source through FTP, as easy as:
    .pipe(sftp({
    host: host,
    auth: auth,
    remotePath: remotePath
    })
    As it is, this would take a whole new mechanism specific to Azure to be built into gulp. There are SO many scenarios like this, this would allow Azure to be targeted far more often without any new tooling capabilities.
