Hello All, after some searching I couldn't find a clear answer on an Agent procedure to generate File and folder permissions for a device. I saw the Share permission audit but not a file/folder permission audit. Is one available or does anyone have one?
Not sure I understood whether you want to have an Agent Procedure that does a report on a file/folder permissions or if you want something that can modify the permission of a file and folder.
If the question is regarding the latter you just need a simple ExecuteShellCommand step and run a SetACL command.
You also could use CACLS (deprecated) or ICACLS (buggy) as follows:
cacls "c:\Program Files\Test\Grant.exe" /G Everyone:F /E /C
Thank you for the reply, to clarify I am looking for a procedure that does a report on file/folder permissions.
The same commands can report file / folders permissions not just modify them.
Example with SetACL to list permissions on all files in c:\kworking
setacl -on c:\kworking -ot file -actn list -lst i:y;f:tab -rec obj
Output the report to a Text File:
ICACLS c:\kworking\*.* > c:\kworking\results.txt
This only requires an Agent Procedure with a single ExecuteShellCommand step unless you need to do further processing after the report is generated.
In case if anyone needs to deny/grant/remove NTFS permission on Folders-
icacls.exe C:\denyme /deny "Vantage\Domain Users":(X,WD,AD,WA,WEA,DC,DE,WDAC) /T /C
