  • Edit File Properties - Grants access to alter files' properties, such as name, description, and file attributes.
  • Edit File Contents - The selected access entities are allowed to use the built-in image editor to crop, rotate and resize images.
  • Copy File - Allows access entities to duplicate a file.
  • Edit File Access - Access entities can change a file's password and storage location.
  • Delete File Set - Access entities can remove an existing file set.
  • Delete File - Files can be deleted from the File Manager.

File Uploader Access Entity

This special access entity is available on the File Manager Permissions page, and can be used to control how the user that "owns" a file can manage only their own uploads via the File Manager.


Using the File Uploader access entity, you can enable users to control only those files they've uploaded. In this example, all Registered Users can add files, but they can only find their own files once uploaded (and they can't modify them or remove them.)
