Tables mode

You populate the table with your credentials, whether from a scanned share, Novell permissions, or a self-created Excel spreadsheet. You can edit and change the permissions according to your needs and ideas. You can remove and add directories. You can authorize users and groups with the five default rights to these directories. You can initiate inheritance breaks and redirect directories in the redesign project.

Rights mapping

After scanning your share, the rights mapping will be displayed if rights have been found in the scanned share that differ from the standard rights. Not only the rights themselves play a role, but also the type of rights (like refuse) and the propagation (the application to this folder, subfolders and files). These rights can be converted into standard rights in the mapping table.

Different destination directory

Ab migRaven Version 3.2.1029 makes it possible to redirect directories when migrating a Windows share.

To do this, under Design & Work in table mode, you will find an additional column "Different target directory" next to the (initial) path.
Here you can specify a different directory than the home directory.

In general, the home directory will be replaced by the new directory. The permissions are applied.
Subdirectories under it are taken over, up to the level in which a different target directory may be specified.

Interrupt inheritance

In table mode, it is possible to break inheritance in any directories. Nevertheless, one should use this function very restrained, since inheritance interruptions are difficult to recognize in lower directories under Windows and authorization changes therefore often do not take place as one imagines.

Output NTFS permissions, edit in Excel and import xlsx file

1. Summary

In table mode, you can output the authorization table as a CSV file before saving. This makes it possible to edit the permissions in Excel. You can add and remove directories and permissions. Finally, save the table as an xlsx file. This is used in a "Table Import" project as the basis for building an authorization structure in a new share.
