Description

Problem description

  • In the technique "Enforce a file content" it's possible to enforce
    standard permissions, but no sticky bit or setuid/setgid bit can be set
  • In the technique "Download a file from the shared folder" it's possible
    to enforce standard permissions and to set the setuid/setgid bit, but no
    sticky bit can be set
  • In the technique "Download a file" it's possible to enforce standard
    permissions, but no sticky bit or setuid/setgid bit can be set
  • In the technique "Set the permissions on files" it's possible to enforce
    standard permissions and to set the setuid/setgid bit, but no sticky bit
    can be set
  • In the technique "Manage files and folders" it's possible to enforce
    standard permissions, but no sticky bit or setuid/setgid bit can be set

Short problem description

  • I really miss the possibility to set the sticky bit in all techniques
    setting permissions
  • I really miss consistancy across techniques

Proposal

Please use NCF blocks and force the use of NCF blocks in all techniques
needing particular functionality.

IMHO there should be one - and really only one - NCF block setting
permissions. This block should be used in all techniques setting
permissions.

Use of certain blocks, like permission adjustment, should not
be optional. If there's a need for enhanced functionality, the block
should be changed, not the techniques making use of the block.

This won’t be added to that technique, please use the technique editor for that. If you are missing some capabilities in it, please open a ticket for that need.
