IRF not working from OES client?

OES 2015 SP1, Client for OES 2 SP4 (IR8) on Win 10 (1903)

We rarely use IRFs, but I had a need for one.  Kept trying to set it via the OES client, but it would not apply.  Tried setting it up via iManager and it worked.  Anyone aware of an issue with creating IRFs from the OES client?

Re: IRF not working from OES client?

There's been work done reg. the IRF tab between IR8a and IR9. While this was related to Bug 1091511 (different stuff) testing with IR12 is for sure worth a try. I can't see any obvious issues with IRF handling in IR12, but i'm not using one of these dillidally systems.

Which checkboxes do you try to mark / unmark? How is the target folder / file named? How deep in the filesystem hierarchy does it reside?

Re: IRF not working from OES client?

Volume:Folder1\Folder2\Folder3\Confidential

At Folder2, RWECMF rights were assigned to a group called EVERYONE.  That group should have access to everything except the Confidential folder (and that was what it was named).  There are other folders below Folder2 and Folder3.  Only a few people were given specific rights to the Confidential folder.

Right-click Confidential folder > Properties > OES Rights tab > Inherited Rights and Filters...

Uncheck all rights except Supervisor and select Apply.  It just never seemed to take.

I'll have to do some testing with a newer client.

Re: IRF not working from OES client?

Just followed your steps outlined above and couldn't dupe the issue. I'd really assume that it's already fixed with more recent code. Especially if you're running a build which "allowed" to untick "S" in the IRF dialog, which obviously couldn't work.

Re: IRF not working from OES client?

Thanks for checking that for me!  This is the first issue I have run into with this client version.  With so much on my plate, some things get the "if its not broke don't fix it" treatment.  🙂  So I haven't looked at newer OES clients in a while.  I'll need to put that on the list soon.
