FTP Deployment


I am unable to find any interface for FTP deployment in Rider. I have set up the deployment FTP accounts in the project settings, but I see no way to actually transfer files other than the "auto upload" on file save, which is inconvenient for many uses.

In other JetBrains IDEs I am given a deployment menu under Tools, and also a deployment contextual menu by right clicking on files in the project browser. Am I missing this somewhere in Rider?

I have exact same problem. Rider is missing Remote Host Tool view.. Weird thing is you can still configure your FTP configuration in Settings > Build, Execution, Deployment > Deployment section, but it's not showing up anywhere in the Rider UI.. 

Also Remote Hosts Access Plugin isn't showing up in the list of plugins in Rider.

For further info, I'm on the MacOS version of Rider. Could it be unique to this version?

Hi there,

Please take a look at https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/RIDER-34815#focus=streamItem-27-3777982.0-0. There is a guide about how to get that tool window in Rider available there.

If you need any assistance please contact me.


Kind regards,
