In “Common Documents”, let’s say I create the following folder structure:
If I set FolderA to “Deny All”, then allow access to a file in a sub-folder under FolderA, to a different user, eg. robert.sales, the only way to access the file is via link.
I strongly believe the right behavior should be ( or at least there should be an option to allow this behavior ( default in windows SMB ACL )), to make OnlyOffice allow robert.sales to view the folder sctructure, without showing him the other files/folders with default deny access. eg:
I create a sales.xlsx in FolderA/FolderA1, then add full access to robert.sales:
robert.sales will not see FolderA/FolderA2 nor the documents inside FolderA.
BUT he will see FolderA/FolderA1/sales.xlsx and be able to edit it.
A description of the feature in Windows filesystem/ACLs:
“The Traverse Folder permission is used to allow or deny permission to move through a restricted folder in order to reach the files or folders that are beneath the restricted folder in the hierarchy”
Everyone I know, who are evaluating OO Workspace ATM, had the same question.
