Context

Migration App translates NTFS permissions to Egnyte during the Permissions Migration process in a three-step process.

  1. First, it extracts the permissions from the Source.
  2. Next, it maps those permissions to what they should look like at the Egnyte side
  3. Finally, it applies permissions to the files on Egnyte.
