RapidIdentity Product Guide: New UI

Add or Edit File Shares

File shares are repositories of storage for users to store files that can be accessed remotely. Administrators can set permissions by role or by attribute on the file share level, so administrators can set up repositories with access limited to certain users as well as provide a repository for files that everyone who authenticates into the system can access.

To add a new or edit an existing file share, click Settings and choose File Shares.
