Security access to your file share can be managed in three ways.
Option 1: Dedicated Desktop Support
- Your Dedicated Desktop Support Professional will work with you to customize the permissions on your file share.
- Individual folders can have different security permissions tailored to your business needs.
- Many departments opt to set permissions on folders based on organizational structure and/or job roles, restricting access to private folders for sensitive information.
- Available only if your department has Dedicated Desktop Support.
- If your department has its own IT team, OIT can delegate file share permission management to your department.
- Your IT team must be familiar with NTFS permissions and Active Directory security group management.
- OIT provides your IT team with an OU in ad.colorado.edu with delegated access and base security groups for you to manage the share.
- Your IT team is empowered to manage your folder structure, NTFS permissions, and AD security group membership.
- Detailed instructions for your IT Team can be found on the UCB Files - Managing your permissions (for IT Professionals) page.
Option 3: Basic Access Management
- Designate one or more team members in your department to authorize access to your share.
- Designated team members control access to your file share through https://mygroups.colorado.edu, or may contact the IT Service Center at 303-735-HELP or firstname.lastname@example.org to grant or revoke access.
- Detailed instructions can be found on the UCB Files - Basic Access Management page.
- Permissions cannot be customized on an individual folder level. One security group controls access to your entire file share.
