These procedures will help you share files on your SILS home directory by granting the appropriate permissions.
Setting Basic Permissions: Right-click on your home directory and click “Properties”. Click the “Security” tab to view the current permissions. Names that appear with “AD\” prefix allow for Onyen-based access. Click the "Edit" button” to continue.
If you are prompted for credentials, supply your username as "ad\username" (no quotes) and your Onyen password. To remove any entries that are no longer needed, highlight the person’s name and click the "Remove" button. To add additional users, click the "Add" button.
After clicking "Add", type in the new user’s Onyen with the “ad\” prefix. For example, ad\username and click OK. If you are prompted for logon credentials, type your Onyen username (ad\username) and password.
Clicking "OK" will take you back to the permissions windows. Set the permissions for the new user as needed (modify, read etc.) and click "OK".
Setting Advanced Permissions: You may wish to grant list access only at the top level folder and modify access to a subfolder. To do so, click the "Advanced" button in the folder's "Properties" window and go to the "Security" tab. This will allow you to set more precise permissions for a particular user. Click "Edit" to add or modify a user. Highlight that user and click "Edit" again to set permissions. At the top level, the minimum permissions you must set are "Traverse Folder /execute file", "List folder /read data" and "Read attributes". Granting this access and select Apply to "This folder and files", will allow the user to click through your home directory to the subdirectory they have access to.
Finally, you can change the permissions on the subfolder as necessary (modify, read etc.) using the same process.
