Sorry folks, but we are not able to repro this issue (either using SSMS 17.9.1 or SSMS 18 Preview 7).
Since multiple people out there are reporting this issue, it is obvious that we are missing something that is specific to your environment or configuration.
Could you help us out and try to describe a little better your subscription/environment/account/permissions?
For example, does the following mainstream scenario works for you all:
1) Connect to Azure Portal
2) Create SQL server+database
3) Go to SSMS and connect to
4) Add firewall rule
If it does, then can you identify what is different between the case where it works and the case where it does not?

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!
