limit access rights for Net Folders in Desktop Client



Hi



here is the business case:



we want to make available our Net Folders in the desktop client (we are on Filr 3.2.1, client is 3.2).



We want to grant only restricted access. In particular, we do not want that a user is able to select and delete thousands of files on the Filr client

and subsequently, these files are delete on the server as well. Of course, we do not mind if a user does this in his own "My Files" area.

These users do have the NSS-Rights to do that. So of course they could do it anytime in the Windows exlporer. But we still feel that chances of such an event rises when deploying a new software like Filr Client.



So the question is: if we define a group in OES that grants only read-access and use this group in the "rights" tab of Net Folder. Would this be honored or would the users in this group still have write/delete access.

Reading the Filr documentation i would guess that the users would still have write/delete access as the documentation states, that Filr takes the highest rights it can find for a given user.



But i thougt i'd better ask.



Thanks

Andrej

Quite honestly I've never tried that - our users need the same access
through Filr that they have elsewhere. It would be simple enough to
test though. Just create a user, create a group and setup the
scenario you want. If it works, you are set. If it doesn't, then
maybe you want to post an enhancement request. But part of the idea
behind Filr is to provide more flexible access without having to
manage additional rights...so the server rights flow right through.
