In this page you can also change the password of a user by filling the Change Password form (on the right). This can be useful e.g. if a user forgets his password.

To manage users' permissions click on Access Rights on the left:

Clicking on the root path:

you can now see only the owner of the repository that has permissions to read and write in all the repository, while all the others (*) can't do anything. Notice that the permissions on a folder are automatically extended to all the corresponding subfolder (so if a user has permission on the root they are automatically extended to all the repository).

If you want a new user (eg. Giuseppe) to be able to read/write in one of the subfolder:

  • Go to Add path form, select the desired folder from Path drop-down list and click Add button

  • To delete all the defined permits of a user tick Remove checkbox (on the left of the table) and Change path members.

If you define a user without adding any permission that user won't have any permission on that folder, even those defined for the root folder.
