File Uploader Access Entity

This special access entity is available on the File Manager Permissions page and can be used to control how the user that "owns" a file can manage only their own uploads via the File Manager.



Using the File Uploader access entity, you can enable users to control only those files they've uploaded. In this example, all Registered Users can add files, but they can only find their own files once uploaded (and they can't modify them or remove them.)
