Documentation forAccess Rights Manager

Background / Value

Sub-directories often contain different access rights compared to its "parent" directory. ARM shows all directories where these rights differ. Disabled inheritances are often an indicator of highly restricted directories.


Step-by-step process

  1. Select "Resources"
  2. Select the desired file server.
  3. Click on "Report"
  4. Select the report "Report on paths with different access rights"


  1. You can name the report and add a comment.
  2. If desired you can adjust the range of the report.
  3. Start the report.


  1. Open the .XLSX file with your spreadsheet application.
  2. Click on the "resource tab".
  3. We recommend using "auto filter" to analyze the "Inheritance activated" column. If set to "off" the report shows all directories with disabled inheritance.
