How does SmartFTP find the LastPass site

Given a favorite, SmartFTP searches the LastPass password vault for a matching site. It uses several strategies:

Strategy: Url

It uses the Url and Username property in the LastPass site entry to identify a corresponding site. The Url property must be set according to Url mapping.

Strategy: Favorite Id

It looks for a text form field in a LastPass site with the name SmartSoft.SmartFTP.FavoriteItem.Id and the favorite id (e.g. {D9F65CFA-D79D-4410-95D1-F7A395707330}) as the value.
