    File Transfer Permission Help

    Goal : If I am admin and create a folder I do not want people with a lower permission value to be able to rename or delete my folder.

    For rename I tried this under Server Groups:
    i_ft_file_rename_power = Admin 75, Normal 50
    i_ft_needed_file_rename_power = Admin 75, Normal 50

    I thought that would work but the Normal user can still delete rename the folder created by the Admin.
    I used this same logic on nudges and it works fine. However, for file rename and delete it does not seem to work the same.
    Can someone help me please figure out what I am doing wrong or if this is a bug or if it is working just fine?

    Thanks,
    Tide

    you have to make sure that they have no file permissions other than download and download quota. Also, look at channel permissions to make sure that no channel permissions are overriding.

    I'm in our TS now and could help you out if you wanted to.

    settings

    I do not have any other settings active under channel permissions or channel groups.

    I want them to be able to rename files just not the files of someone with a higher permission value than them.

    Not Sure

    After playing with the numbers in various ways I am as confused as ever as to what i_ft_needed_file_rename_power is even for. It seems to have no effect on whether others can rename your files.

    What does this variable do?

    You have to set the i_ft_needed_file_rename_power
    on a channel. Everyone without enough i_ft_file_rename_power
    They get
    <11:53:03> Error renaming file: insufficient client permissions
