Protecting access and sharing a file
- A file containing confidential information is stored on your personal computer. You wish to store it on a shared space supported by SDS for C&M in a protected way.
- When you wish to share files securely with other users through a shared space supported by SDS for C&M.
- From the file explorer (or the Finder on macOS), right-click on the file you wish to protect and share and select Stormshield Data Security > Protect access and share.
- Log into your shared space if it is the first time you are sharing a file and enable access to SDS for C&M.
- In the Protect access and share window, select the shared space in which you want to share the file.
- In the Folder panel, select a location to publish the file. The File panel displays the files already stored in the selected folder. You can change the name of the file displayed in the shared space at the bottom of the window. Click on Next.
- In the next window, select the users other than yourself allowed to edit the file. For OneDrive and Dropbox spaces, users who have access to the shared space appear by default in the list of users authorized to edit the file. Edit it if necessary.
- In the My address book column, filter the user list by entering the first few letters of their names in the Search for user field, then click on the icon.
- In the Allowed users column, check the box Allowed to manage access to enable these users to allow other users to see and edit the files.
- Click on Next.
Check the summary and click Share.
The file is protected in its original location, and send to the shared space. If the file to share is read-only or located in a read-only folder, it is protected on the shared space, but not in the original location.
- If you have shared the file with other users, you can notify them by e-mail, or copy the link to send it by any other means.
On Windows only, if you cannot find a user in the list, refer to the section Users cannot be found in the list.
If a key has availability or validity issues, refer to the section The application indicates issues with keys.
