Use Case Tip - Sharing with Guests - Full Control

Image
Giving a Guest User Edit Control of Your File(s) When you need an outside user (guest) to edit a file for you, it's easy to provide access to that file. However, sharing a file by itself does not give you the expected result.


When you share a file, the guest user can view the file, and depending on your share settings, they can download for editing as well.


But when they attempt to drag-and-drop the file back into the tenant "File Browser", they won't have access. In order for them to have the ability to update a file and automatically update it when they close the editor, the file must be contained within a folder that you have shared. This gives them the appropriate level of access necessary to make updates.

Follow these steps to share a file for editing with a guest user:
Create a folderPut the file(s) you want to share into that folderShare the folder with your guest
There are several ways for a guest user to download the file for editing. If you want them to crea…

Single Sign-On (SSO) Using Azure Active Directory

Image
Single Sign-On is available using SAML authentication. There are two parties involved in this function.
One is the IdP (the identity provider)The other is SP (service provider) A user will be registered with the identity provider and use the service from service provider. The setup described here will allow the service provider (the Cluster Server) to get access to credentials from the identity provider. In the following example, we use a public IdP (i.e., AzureAD), and the SP will be the Cluster Server. This can also be accomplished with a different IdP provider.

In a multi-tenant Cluster Server deployment each tenant may want to have its own SSO service. Therefore, the Single Sign On is a per-tenant setting.
Step 1: Register the Cluster Server at IdP Login as the Tenant Admin and navigate to Group Policy > Account & Login > Single Sign On.
IdP will need to register the Cluster Server as a service provider (SP) by importing the SP’s meta data. You will find the Cluster’s me…

Accessing, Modifying (Editing), and Removing Shares

Image
Your users can share anything with outside users, unless certain limits are in place through Group Policy settings.

The video below shows you how to get access to your shares so they can be modified. It also covers how you can eliminate shares that you no longer want to be available. It also demonstrates how users can access their shares one-by-one or all at once. If a user wants to modify a share, they should set their view to "List" mode and then click the "Share" icon from the icon list on the item row... 


...or by right-clicking the item and choosing the "Share" icon from the pop-up context menu.



After clicking the "Share" icon they can begin the modification process by clicking the "Shared with people" icon at the bottom-left of the window.



The user can access all their shares by clicking the "Show/Hide Info Panel" button (1) on the bottom right of their File Browser. Then select the "Sharing and Collaboration&…

Group Policy - Disable Public Link - Secure your Files

This video shows how you can use this important Group Policy setting to activate this feature.
