Application Privileges for User Groups

Postby don-ny » Fri Dec 21, 2012 7:14 pm

It would be great if you could set Application Privileges not only for a specific user but also for a whole user group.

Scenario:
Lets say we have a non-profit organization that has a lot of multimedia files (all kinds).
The organization (which has a lot of members) uses a qnap-station for the storage and wants to share some media over the according applications to a specific group of users.
So if you want to do such thing now you would have to set the application privileges for every single user again. You probably would get insane if you would have to set the privileges for 25 new users or so. :roll:
It would be much more comfortable if you could just set the application privileges for a whole user group and add all the users to it that should be able to access this application.

I would love to see the line "New Feature: Application Privileges for User Groups" in a future releasenote :wink:

Can't agree more:

- Local users [ok] and groups
- Active Directory users and groups
- LDAP user and groups

There was a tread on this topic already during the public 3.8.0 Beta - [3.8.0 1012] Application Privileges.

thanks - read it a few minutes ago

can't understand why it should be so difficult to implement the feature at least for the local groups -.-
