Using DNA Center as an SFTP server - how?

Hello DNA Center experts

 

I was wondering whether I can use the DNA Center appliance as a generic SFTP server? In 1.3.3.6 I can see the option below but I don't recall configuring the sftpuser credential, and how would I change it anyway?

What is the point of this feature? How can I add other users, or manage directory structure etc. It seems a little weird/niche feature, which I can't find any documentation for.

 

And this has nothing to do with the SFTP server that I use to store my DNAC Config Backups. For that I am using an external SFTP repository.

No, Cisco DNA can't be a generic sftp server.  The Local Sftp settings page shows the credentials that network devices use to pull software images from the appliance during a SWIM upgrade (automated software upgrades).  It doesn't seem to let you change these parameters, so I'm not really sure why they are even being displayed to the user.

 

In case anyone is wondering, the "Remote SFTP" settings are there to setup backups of from the Cisco DNA appliance to an external file server.
