ObjectiveFS Access Control Lists (ACL) Support

ObjectiveFS supports standard unix permissions, basic and extended ACLs. Extended ACL support is available on the Business and Enterprise plans in versions 6.5 and newer.

Usage

The filesystem should be mounted with the acl flag for full (extended) ACL support.

# mount.objectivefs -oacl <filesystem> <directory>

Examples

  1. Set Basic ACL

     $ setfacl -R -m u::rx file1

  2. Set Extended ACL

     $ setfacl -R -m u:ubuntu:rx project1

  3. Get ACL

     $ getfacl project1
     # file: project1
     # owner: root
     # group: root
     user::rw-
     user:ubuntu:r-x
     group::rw-
     mask::rwx
     other::rw-
