Manage Folder Level Permissions

Starting with FileCloud 14.0, administrators can manage all configured folder-level permissionsIn order to view folder-level permissions, the admin must be the master admin or an admin user with access to the folder permissions enabled. An admin user can be granted access to the Folder permissions system through the Admins menu item on the left navigation panel (see Managing Admin Users).

The screen displays the list of existing folder permissions set in the system. Use the Filter box to filter folder permissions on the folder path. Individual permissions can then be viewed, edited and deleted.

  1. To open the Manage Folder Permissions screen, In the navigation panel, click Folder Permissions.
  2. To open the Manage Folder Level Security dialog box, click the edit button.
