Issue Reported 11-11-2014
Bugfix Released 12-11-2014
While updating the folder permissions with new ShareFile distribution groups we had to apply an ACL template to multiple folders. Until now we had to update this folder by folder. We created a Multi Select options in which you can apply an ACL template to several folder, across your ShareFile environment at once. All jobs created by the multi select wizard are added to the process queue and can be applied at once.
Double click a shared folder in the left pane to retrieve the current folder information. To add or modify an existing ShareFile distribution group switch over to the section “Create/Update Access Rights”. Select a distribution group, the correct permissions and click “Set Access Rights”. A status windows will open so you can follow the progress. To be sure the ShareFile distribution groups are applied correctly we change the access rights folder by folder. Keep in mind this can take some time in large folder structures
Sometimes you need to make multiple changes on a single or several folders at once, previously you had to do this change by change. We added a processing queue to SFGuru Explorer in which you store all your changes. Everytime a job is added to the queue it is checked and when possible combined with existing jobs so that in the end a fully optimized job can be applied to your ShareFile environment.
Double click a shared folder in the left pane to retrieve the current folder information. The section “current access right” will display the current permissions on the selected folder. To remove a distribution group from a shared folder just select the group, from within the currecnt access rights section and click “Delete Group”
Our customer required an overview of all folders and subfolders within there ShareFile account. Unfortunately we weren’t able to generate a report from the Control Plane, so we’ve added a feature to export the complete folder structure, including the folders Ids. The outcome, which is displayed in a gui with advanced filter options, can also be exported to a xml of xls file.The folder depth which is being processed can be changed through Tools > Options
Tools > Get Groups
For certain management tasks within you’ll need the ShareFile distribution group ID’s, which can be easily extracted with the “Get Groups” feature. The output, which will be displayed in the progress box can be copied from the box. If for some reason you need to stop the progress just click “Cancel action”
Tools > Get Users
For certain management tasks within you’ll need the ShareFile user guid’s, which can be easily extracted with the “Get Users” feature. The output, which will be displayed in the progress box can be copied from the box. If for some reason you need to stop the progress just click “Cancel action”
SFGuru Explorer stores its configuration in an encrypted .config file. While working on several ShareFile environments we had to constantly switch .config files, or change the login information to connect with the correct site. We added a multitenant option, which supports multiple .config files in the SFGuru Explorer folder. As Soon as the application detects multiple .config files on startup it will display a menu in which you can select the desired environment.
