Template setting "Disable Inheritance of of any upper level folder permission propagation" usage

Hello,

 

How to set for all passwordlist that uses Template, this setting enabled "Disable Inheritance of of any upper level folder permission propagation" ?

 

It seems this setting only works when creating new password list and selecting this template, not for existing ones. We can only set it manually for each passwordlist.

We have lots of passwordlist`s which needs this.

 

In version 8 for some Root folders we used Manual Folder permissions, after upgrade it changed to "Model: Advanced - Propagate permissions down from top level folder" and:

  • For few smaller Root Folders all subfolders has needed Inheritance of any permissions from upper-level folders" setting and all passwordlist`s  has enabled option "Disable Inheritance of of any upper level folder permission propagation" - with is fine.
  • For one bigger Root Folder, all subfolders has needed "Inheritance of any permissions from upper-level folders" setting, but none of passwordlist`s has enabled "Disable Inheritance of of any upper level folder permission propagation" -  this causes an issue when subfolder permissions is changed, all its passlwordlist`s permissions updates also.

Hi,

 

Thank you for Blog link, this change is clear but not helps.

How to get password list template setting "Disable Inheritance of of any upper level folder permission propagation" working.

We checked/enabled this setting on template, but none of the passwordlist`s that uses this template has this setting applied.

We can only set manually:

Hello,

 

Thank you for Upgrade, after testing no changes for this issue.

 

I upgraded to V9.3 (Build 9381),  then edited passwordlist template by checking setting "Disable Inheritance of of any upper level folder permission propagation" and saved.

Audit logs shows Activity "Password List Updated" event for All password lists. Getting same result(no changes)when checking "Edit Password List Properties" for all passwordlist that template applied. I can check this setting manually.

 

Best, SZU

Hello SZU,

 

It is by design that you can change this setting on a Password List, even if it is linked to a Template. Some customers have requirements for both options within a folder structure, which is why we provide this as an option.

 

And only Administrator's of Password Lists can change this setting.

Hi,

 

Yes,  I understand this design and it`s fine. 

 

I made few more tests and found that for some Passwordlist linked to a Template setting "Disable Inheritance of of any upper level folder permission propagation"  was applied. 

But others not. Compared two records on database and noticed that Passwordlist where this setting was not applied has value "0" on table: Passwordlist column: PropagatePetrmissions. 

Maybe this some kind related.

 

Best,

SZU

Hello SZU,

 

We'd need to be able to reproduce this as an issue, and at this stage we cannot. 0 means False in SQL Server for boolean fields, and 1 would be True.

 

Are you sure these affected Password Lists are beneath a folder that's using the Advanced Permissions Model?
