An option to set default file attributes when uploading
files. Would be most useful for website uploading. Best
would be individual settings for each site.

There should be a site specific option for file and directory uploads/creation.

any roadmap for this? I think this is really a important feature - at least some global option.

I would also like to change the umask assigned to all uploads.
There were some feature requests regarding setting the umask.
Mostly it is due to the need to set umask simply to 002 to have the write permission set to the group.

I do not understand why this feature req. priority is set to normal without any explanation.

Is there any update on this ticket? I have users that create and transfer files that end up with permissions that we do not want. We really need a way to force a default permissioning scheme. It seems rather silly that we can manually change permissions but not being able set them by default? Something as simple as calling chmod +x -R FILENAME after file creation would be really useful.

ELEVEN years. This seems like a ridiculous amount of time to get this basic feature implemented....

Having a very big issue with file permissions being set to ---------- even though sFTP's umask is 022. Even clients not specifically tasked for this purpose (like Total Commander on Windows) have this feature in. Why doesn't FileZilla have it?

Problem exists in FileZilla 3.10.0 on OS X 10.9 (Mavericks).

I know this was opened 11 years ago but I just ran into a problem with a fileserver where creating a new file with Bash SSH gives it group write permissions but FileZilla does not, and I'm not able to fix that as I don't have root access and the server admin hasn't fixed it yet.

WinSCP does have the ability to set default new file/folder permissions but FileZilla does not yet, so I'll be trying WinSCP.
