Identify direct permissions (web client)

Background / Value

Direct access rights should be avoided at all costs and be replaced by group access rights. Firstly, direct access rights are inefficient because every user has to be managed independently. Secondly, each directory needs to be examined individually to ensure the removal of all direct permissions. 8MAN shows you all direct access rights on your file server(s).


8MAN strictly adheres to Microsoft Best Practice and assigns a group for every access right.
