Grant and remove file server access rights

Background / Value

Access rights should be easy to assign and revoke. So Data Owners and Managers can also do this quickly and easily for the employees in their department. No special knowledge of Active Directory and / or file servers is needed.

Simply decide what type of access rights you would like to assign: modify or read.

In order to maintain data integrity we recommend assigning modify permissions only to carefully selected employees.
