Identify deviating access rights in the tree structure

Background / Value

Inheriting permissions is a good way to keep the access rights structure clear and manageable. ARM shows deviating access rights, regardless of whether they were added or removed. If the chain of inheritance is broken, ARM will show this in the tree structure. You can make corrections or leave them as is, if the directory has special protection requirements.
