How should we design the new security system to handle a foldertree / file structure?

  1. Folder
  2. SubFolder
  3. File.
  4. File.

One or more Role have read access to folder. Subfolders/file inherit security from folder or inheritance can be disabled (just like with a normal FileSystem)

One Answer:


The security system follows Role-based Access Control approach, so I'm afraid that it won't suit well for classic Access Control List scenario. More info on the security system and how it is intended to be used can be found in a special series of posts in our blog.
