Basically we want to define a folder structure accessible for all users in the company with different access rights on subfolders – similar to a typical ACL definition in local file systems. I’ll try to describe the current situation and what we do not want with an example:
- we have a shared Folder “company”, with access to all authenticated users
- below “company”, we have a folder “department”. This folder has to have restricted access for only one group of users
If I define access rights in Nextcloud both for “company” and for “department”, a user with access to both has the following directory structure:
Our goal is to have a common directory structure for all users. If we define different access rights on subfolders users will see various folders below “shared” which are also in the “company” folder tree. This leads to a cluttered “shared” structure. Our goal is to prohibit the appearance of the “department” folder below “shared”.
I hope this makes it more understandable?
