      Description

      Upon initial authentication into Alfresco via FTP, what is initially displayed is the contents of filesystem.name, which is a label. The ability to display a specified repository location, as happens after CIFS authentication, is desired as an option.

      Current Behaviour

      By default, initial authentication into Alfresco via FTP results in what appears to the user as an "Alfresco" folder, through which the user an access and traverse the repository. It is possible to change this from "Alfresco" by setting the filesystem.name folder, but it is not possible to use that field or another field to cause a repository space to be displayed instead. For example, the attached filesystem.name.ftp.png shows the result of attempting to set filesystem.name=${protocols.rootPath}

      Desired Behaviour

      For the initial login via FTP to display the same as WebDAV (see attached protocols.rootpath.webdav.png) if the contents of filesystem.name resolve to protocols.rootPath, /app:company_home or any other valid repository location.
