Is there a way for a file that is FTPed onto a system to have the same
authority as the directory that it is FTPed into?
We have an IFS directory structure /DirA/DirB/DirC. All 3 directories are
owned by a single user profile with all data and object authorities.
*PUBLIC is secured by *AUTL. Existing files are secured in the same manner
as the directories.
We are implementing a new process where others can FTP files into /DirC for
processing. When a new file is FTPed (from a non-IBM i system), it arrives
in /DirC with owner of the user profile used for the FTP session (this is
OK) but *PUBLIC gets *R data authority instead of inheriting the *AUTL from
DirC. We would like for these new files to have *PUBLIC *AUTL data
authority without resorting to creating a process to change the file
authority each time it is FTPed.
We thought the new file would have the same authority as /DirC but
apparently not. Any ideas?
