Documentation forAccess Rights Manager

Remove direct permissions

Background / Value

Direct access rights should be avoided and replaced by group access rights. Firstly, direct access rights are inefficient because every user is managed independently. Secondly, each directory needs to be examined individually to ensure the removal of all direct access rights. Access Rights Manager shows you all direct access rights on your file server(s). You can then use drag & drop to turn direct access rights into group access rights.
