Set Access Rights

Your ability to read, add, delete and modify the files in your Project Volume is determined by your access rights to that directory.

  • By default, you have full administrative rights to your Project Volume. This means that you may read, add, delete and modify your files. As administrator, you may also give or take away any set of rights to any user.
  • By default, system:anyuser has the ability to read your files. The group system:anyuser is defined as anyone with an Andrew userID.

You can change the access rights of any person or group of people to your Project Volume. To do this, you will need a telnet client. We recommend using SSH Tectia or Terminal.
