Permissions

This section describes the permissions that must be granted to the connector.

Action Permissions Required
Synchronize

The connector must be able to:

  • read the entire directory structure below the folder specified by DirectoryPathCSVs.
  • list files so that it can find the files you want to retrieve.

The user account used to run the connector must have read access for the files and folders that you want to retrieve. CFS also requires the same permission.

Tip: Starting the connector by running the executable file uses your user account to run the connector. Unless you have the permissions described above you might need to run the connector using a different user account. To run the connector using a different user account, log on as that user.

On Windows platforms, the File System Connector service uses the Local System account to run the connector. To retrieve files from a network share, modify the service so that it uses an account that has the necessary permissions.

On Windows, extracting security information requires the "Read permissions" permission.

Collect The same permissions as the synchronize action. The connector must also have write-access to the collect destination folder.
Insert The user account used to run the connector must have write access to the path where the files are inserted.
Delete/Remove The user account used to run the connector must have permission to delete the files.
View

The user account used to run the connector must have read access for the files.

Unless the connector communicates directly with the View server, the connector also requires access to the shared path for the IDOL View Server.
