Hi,

Recently I have created a new application under user1/webapps/new_appname and I have created a new user called user2.

I tried the adding user2 to the user1 group when creating it and the following command to give permission to the user to access only this new_appname

setfacl -m u:user2:rwx $HOME/webapps/new_appname

However, is there a way to block user2 from viewing all other available folders in webapps?

Appreciate your reply. Thank you!

Hello,

Our documentation specifies the steps necessary to do this, if you have not seen it already:

Granting Access to Specific Users

Hope this helps!

Hi,

I have read the document and do not understand the workings.. I have successfully granted 2nd user to the lowest level directory. However, I do not want him to access 3rd level (webapps) and see other folders in the webapps.

Please assist. Thank you!
