"View Who Has Access" does not honor read-only rights

This document (7013049) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell Filr 1.0


When user with read only rights on net folder clicks "View Who Has Access" in Filr, user can see all other users and groups with access to the net folder.
How to limit user with read-only rights from viewing other users or groups permissions ("View Who Has Access")


This is working as designed.

The idea behind the 'View Who Has Access' dialog is to present a list of who
can access an entity.  Currently, if you have rights to see an entity in the
first place, you have rights to view everybody else that can see it to.

Additional Information

Starting with Filr 1.1, "External Users" and "Guest" will no longer be provided with an option to "View who has access".
