#967 closed enhancement (fixed)

Assign the parent directory permissions to new files/directories

Description

I made a /home/shared folder and gave it Everyone RU permissions. The idea is to have a place where any user can access files (I can't think of many use cases, but one might be as a place to put local PDF documentation).

When I upload a file to /home/shared I have to share the file to Everyone as a second step. It would be nice if it inherited the permissions from the parent directory.

Is there a way to have such a directory outside of /home? I couldn't find a way.

This is VERY low priority.

Bob.

Summary: file browser suggestion (sticky/inherited permissions on folders)Assign the parent directory permissions to new files/directories

This would be very useful once FTP access (#408) is implemented. It is also useful if you upload and extract a zip file since you would have to share each subdirectory manually. Note that ticket #981 would also be useful in this case.

This feature may interfere with automatic sharing to the active project. If no project is active we can safely copy the 'itemKey' and 'projectKey' to the new file/directory. If a project is active a simple copy will prevent the new file/directory from being shared to the project. Instead we need to do some kind of merge.
