Create a protected file server directory

Background / Value

Managers and team leads can use ARM to quickly and easily create protected file server directories. This is done by creating a directory, removing all inherited rights and then adding new access rights. The result is a protected directory that only selected users have access to.

  2. Navigate to the desired folder.
  3. Right-click on the desired object and select "Create directory" from the context menu.

 

  1. Name the directory.
  2. Activate the option.
  3. You must enter a comment.
  4. Start the creation of a new directory.
