Article Summary

In order to enable users to access shared folders, you must define the users in the CTERA Edge Filer. You can:

  • Grant the user access rights to network shares.
  • Add a custom user group. The entire user group can then be granted access rights to network shares, and the access rights will apply to all members of the user group.
    Users can be grouped, as described in Managing User Groups.
  • Add the user to the built-in Read Only Administrators user group, which includes read-only access rights to view the settings in the Configuration view.
  • Add the user to the built-in Administrators user group, which includes read-write access rights to view and modify settings in the Configuration view.
Note

Users and user groups are granted access rights to network shares during share configuration. See Sharing Local Files.
Users that are not members of the Administrators or Read Only Administrators user groups do not see the Configuration view.

To enable sharing files when the CTERA Edge Filer is a Caching Gateway, as described in Setting Up the CTERA Edge Filer For Caching, both CTERA Portal users and CTERA Edge Filer users must have matching names.
