I’m using pydio 8.0.2 on a Linux host.
I’m not sure I understand the user management model - it seems to require a lot of extra steps just to add a user and have that user be able to log in and access common files.
Here’s what I’m currently doing:
- Log in with admin acct
- Click on Address Book
- Click on My Users
- Click on +CREATE USER and add the user’s fields to create the user.
– This creates the user, however the user is not in any team and cannot access any files, so I then:
- Click on my team under ‘My Teams’ (I only have one), click the Add User button, and select the new user from My Users to add them to the team
– This adds the user to my team, however the user still cannot access any files, so I think I need to add it to a user group. However I can’t do this to the user group in the Address Book (under directory) - for some reason no users ever show up here, even though the group contains users in settings, and anyway there is no Add button when the group is selected, so I then:
- Click on Settings and then click on People under the Workspaces & Users section
- Drag the user from the top level to one of the Groups I’ve created
– At this point I’d expect the user to have the Workspace access of the group which I’ve set to read/write for Common Fiels, however this isn’t true, if the user logs in they still cannot access files, so I then:
- Click on the user and under Workspace Acesses grant them individual read/write access to the workgroup (esp. Common Files).
All this seems like a lot of work to just create a user and give them access! Am I doing it wrong or missing a more direct workflow? TIA.
Also two related questions: 1) what do workspace permissions on a group mean, if not that users in that group are granted those permissions? 2) is there a place to give a user permission to adminstrate other users and workspaces? I would like to have my regular ‘user’ account do this so I don’t have to log out & log in as admin.
