Use the Edit Security feature to modify a file or folder's NT ACL.


Notes: 

  • The Edit Security feature is available only to the Business Administrator.  GA and standard user access to this feature may be added at a later time.
  • Modifying the ACL through the Edit Security interface will automatically disable inheritance on the file or folder.
  • If inheritance is enabled for a subfolder, changes to the ACL of the parent folder will replace the ACL of the subfolder.  If the subfolder has a different ACL than the parent folder and inheritance is on, the differences in the subfolder will be lost.
  • If inheritance is disabled for a subfolder, changes to the ACL of the parent folder will not affect the subfolder.

To modify a file or folder's NT ACL, go to Files in MCM and select the file or folder, then click Edit Security.  The screenshots below show the Edit Security dialog for a folder.  For files, the dialog will be the same but the Applies To columns and dropdowns will be omitted.
