Managing Users of An iFolder
Understanding iFolder Access Rights
Within an iFolder, you can perform the following tasks:
Click Add to add new shared members to the selected iFolder. You can add an individual iFolder user or a LDAPGroup as shared member. The new page opens that allows you to add users to the list of shared users.
On the Members page, select the shared members and click the rights you want to assign to them.
The iFolder client supports the owner and three levels of access for members of an iFolder:
IMPORTANT: All the members of an LDAPGroup inherits the access rights set for that LDAPGroup.
A member of the shared iFolder, with the Read Only access right to directories and files in the iFolder. This member can copy an iFolder file to another location and modify it outside the iFolder.
A member of the shared iFolder, with the Read/Write access right to directories and files in the iFolder.
A member of the shared iFolder, with the Full Control access right. The user with the Full Control right has read/write access to the iFolder and manages membership and access rights for all users except the owner. But, only the owner have the right to delete an iFolder.
Only one user serves as the owner of an iFolder. This is typically the user who created the iFolder and only he or she can delete this iFolder. The owner user can use the iFolder client to transfer ownership to another member of the iFolder. The iFolder Admin user can transfer ownership to any user on the iFolder server.
The owner of an iFolder has the Full Control right. This user has read/write access to the iFolder, manages membership and access rights for member users, and can remove the Full Control right for any member.
If a user is deleted as a user for the iFolder system, the iFolders owned by the user are orphaned. Orphaned iFolders are assigned temporarily to the iFolder Admin user as owner. Membership and synchronization continues for other users while the iFolder Admin user determines whether an orphaned iFolder should be deleted or assigned to a new owner.
