SFTP File Permissions

The action allows you to modify the file permissions on files and directories on the server.



The file permissions on the SFTP server are assigned like in the UNIX systems. Every file or folder has 3 groups of permissions:

Owner permissions;

Group permissions. That is, the permissions of users of the group, which the file owner belong to.

Public permissions. That is, the permissions for all the rest users.


Every group contains 3 types of permissions:

Read - permission to read the file

Write - permission to write to the file

Execute - permission to execute the file


Please, notice that Checkboxes have three positions:

Switched on – this means that you want to set a permission

Switched off – this means that you want to remove a permission

Grayed, or intermediate state – this means that you want to leave this permission without changing.


By default, all the checkboxes are in Grayed state.



Allows you to add a variable to the action or triggering event that you selected. You must place the cursor in a edit box in the settings dialog window of the action or event and then click the {V} button.
