Only View Files That User Uploads

Post by smithrw » Thu Dec 07, 2017 10:43 am


I have a request configure an SFTP folder that will be used by several individuals. The security requirement is that contributing users can only see the files that they upload while the manager of the folder sees everything.

Is this possible? We are using the HTTPS access method.


- User A uploads File1.doc
- User B uploads File2.pdf
- User A cannot see File2.pdf and User B cannot see File1.doc
- Manager sees all files

If you are just trying the share one folder, then no this isn't possible.

The best way to go about this is let each user have a home folder as a subdirectory and enable "is simple directory"
Then assign the root to Admin.
