EPDM – Permissions per Folder/Assigned Folder Permissions

Article by Joe Medeiros, CSWE updated December 12, 2014


I have found that there is some confusion about what the differences between Permissions per Folder and Assigned Folder Permissions.

In Permissions per Folder, we see all the folders in the vault. Here we can assign permissions to folders, that users/groups currently have no permissions to.

Permissions per folder

In Assigned Folder Permissions, only the folders that a user/group has been assigned permissions, will be shown. Here we can modify existing folder permissions.
