Administer Filespace Shares

  • Updated

Filespace shares form the basis of our Access Control List (ACL) and enable administrators to provide, read, read-write access throughout the Filespace of folders and subsequently the files they contain to particular users. 

Before you begin implementing your shares permission structure, you will need to create your users. Please review Manage Filespace Users FAQ for a detailed overview of administering your users.

Permissions for each user can be granted access across the entire Filespace hierarchical tree structure via assigning a user shared access.

Shares are an important way of securing access to certain data, enabling users to participate in project collaboration, or gain access to areas of a Filespace when required. Administrators can apply or revoke access as required, promoting users with read access, to read-write as their access requirements evolve, or remove access entirely.

Creating shares and allocating users and permissions can be achieved via our LucidLink client dashboard and the control panel tab.

Locate the LucidLink logomark.png logo within the Taskbar to access the control panel.
