    Defining SafeSFS Managers



SafeSFS Managers are users that are authorized to update one or more SafeSFS rule files. The authorization required to be a SafeSFS Manager is called MANAGE and is specified via an ACCEPT rule in the SAFESFS MANAGE file.

The main function of a SafeSFS Manager is to control security for a set of SFS objects owned by other users. The set of SFS objects controlled by a SafeSFS Manager is determined by the SafeSFS rule files that the manager is allowed to update. SafeSFS Managers may also perform SFS User Administration tasks. User Administration tasks include enrolling and deleting users, and modifying and querying user limits. This function may be performed by SafeSFS Managers if SafeSFS Manage Mode is on. If SafeSFS Manage Mode is off, SFS User Administration tasks are controlled outside of SafeSFS. For example, User Administration control may be deferred to SFS. SFS will allow SFS Administrators to perform deferred SFS User Administration functions.

SafeSFS Administrators may define SafeSFS Managers by creating ACCEPT MANAGE rules in the SAFESFS MANAGE file. ACCEPT MANAGE rules may be defined by using one of several methods: the SafeSFS ADD command, the SafeSFS GETRULES/REPRULES commands, or the SafeSFS fullscreen panels.
