SFTP known host key fetch through Legacy InFlight instead of POD

Currently we do not have option to fetch known host key while setting up SFTP profile on Legacy InFlight although it is mandatory to import it to profile in order to connect to partner's SFTP.

Right now procedure we follow is to fetch the knowhost key on SFTP POD and save it and import it to Legacy InFlight. But in order to make the process of setting up SFTP profile faster it would be helpful if we can have option to fetch known host key option while creating profile on the Legacy InFlight itself.

What is your industry? Other
How will this idea be used?

This would be used while creating the SFTP profiles in Legacy InFlight cutting the additional steps which are time consuming.
