Copy Permissions

About Copy Permissions

 The Copy Permissions feature allows you to copy permissions from one share to another share(s). You can use many options like Add the new permissions to the account's existing permissions, Replace the account's existing permissions with the new permissions, etc. You may select options to Allow, Block inheritance from the parent object and also Replace all child objects existing permissions with the inheritable permissions from this object while copying permissions to share. Here is the list of actions you can perform using the Copy Permissions feature.

  Note: This feature will not break the inheritance from the parent of target object. If you still wish to break the inheritance from the parent object, you may use the option "Block Inherited permissions from this object's parent" to block inheritance.
