Currently we have to create lots of new NTFS shared folders for projects and manage the addition and removal of access for users on an ongoing basis. We would like to delegate this specific task to allow the users to manage and maintain their own shares.

What we would like to do is:

  • Allow users to create their own shared folders via a self service portal. This user would then become the owner.
  • Allow the owner to add additional users / remove users access to the shared folder.
  • Allow a user to request access to shared folder.

Is this possible? Forgive me I have not tried Adaxes yet but interested to know if it will meet our needs before I install a demo to test.

Hello, It is possible to give users the possibility to create home directories for their own accounts or other ones. For example, it can be done using a custom command. The command can make the user owner of the new directory and delegate them corresponding permissions (e.g. Full Control). At the same time, Adaxes does not provide the possibility to manage network folders in general. As such, there is no built-in possibility to use it to revoke/grant users permissions over folders, etc. However, you can try using scripts to manage the permissions.
