FTP anonymous Connection

Is it possible to create an FTP connection that allows anonymous access?  Username and Password are required fields when creating the PowerApps FTP connection.  The flow is failing when supplying fake credentials with a message of invalid username/pw.  The FTP location can be accessed through a web browser without supplying username/pw.

Hi anthma,

 

Yes you are right about the UserNmae and Password field in FTP connection.

 

The Connect button of FTP in PowerApp would be greyed out unless both of the username and password box contain values. So currently I don't think it is possible to allow FTP connection with anonymous access.

 

I will help to collect this from my side, hope there would be update on this part soon.

 

 

Please also take a time to submit an idea on this in the following website:

Thank you

You can use anonymous FTP. Simply type 'anonymous' as user and use any password you like.
