This is feature which I am seeking for as well. Given some minor assistance by the developers, I would even submit a patch for that. I'll just need to know if there is periodically executed code and where it resides.

Triage suggestion

This feature does not appear to be available FileZilla Server 0.9.60. However, this feature request is nine years old.

If there are no plans to implement automatic account expiration, I suggest closing this feature request.

Note: The FileZilla Server configuration is stored in an XML document and it would be possible to write an external program to implement this:

  1. When creating a user, add a line like Expires: 2017-05-07 in the description.
  2. Write a piece of software that parses the XML file for users that contain the Expires: text in the description.

If the expiration date is after the specified date, change the text of the user's <Option Name="Enabled"> XML element to 0.

  1. Add a scheduled event that runs your software once a day and restarts FileZilla Server using this command:

C:\Program Files (x86)\FileZilla Server\FileZilla server.exe /reload-config
