Vault User Permissions

The Permissions tab enables you to specify who may see this user.

Note: The system administrator and all users with full control of the document vault in question always see all users.

Editing Permissions

  1. Open M-Files Admin.
  2. In the left-side tree view, expand a connection to M-Files server.
  3. Expand Document Vaults.
  4. Expand a vault.
  5. Click a node that contains items that you want to edit.
  6. Select an item in the listing area.
  7. Right-click the item and click Properties.
  8. Open Permissions.
  9. In Users and user groups, select the user or user group whose permissions to change.
    If the user or user group is not on the list, click Add.
  10. Specify the permissions for the selected user or user group.
    Allow: Enable this to explicitly give the permission to the selected user or user group.
    Deny: Enable this to explicitly deny the permission from the user or user group.
    The Deny setting is normally used to specify an exception to an Allow setting. For example, when John Doe is part the group HR Managers, you can set Allow for the group and Deny for John Doe.
    You can also leave both settings unselected.
  11. Repeat steps 9 and 10 for the rest of the permissions.
  12. Click OK.
