#2265 new Feature request

(Server) Wildcards in Permissions

It would be nice to be able to use wildcards, such as
the * when settings file permissions.

This would be especially useful if for instance you
wanted to provide each user a folder that has special
permissions where the folder name was the same.

and then give that permission to write files.

This allows a single entry that lets each user have a
folder that any user can upload to.

The :u feature is quite useful, however this would
allow on htat user access to upload in that folder.

allow speficification of permissions on files, wish I will
go ahead an make seperate request based on.

Please, this cant be too hard to do, and would a be an amazing feature, as i have the same need as mugendai.

Having folders like /root/$username/incoming
So i give everybody write permission on root/*/incoming.

So everybody can upload something for that user in his own /incoming/ folder.

And maybe make two types of wildcard.

One for every folder like for example

would match /root/*/download

but not match
because ? is only for one folder so it would have to be
to work.

Triage suggestion

I do not see a way to accomplish this in FileZilla Server version 0.9.60. However, this feature request is 12 years old.

If there are no plans to support wildcard-based privilege assignment, I suggest closing this feature request.
