WebUI - Viewer Only Permission Limited Availability


Product: WebUI Release Date: September 21, 2022.

Viewer Only Permission (Limited Availability)

Egnyte is excited to announce Limited Availability of Viewer Only permission for Platform Enterprise Plan customers as an inclusive feature. Viewer Only permission is a new folder permission level that allows customers to better protect their contents by restricting files from being downloaded while still being previewable in the WebUI.

Egnyte will activate Viewer Only permission on a rolling basis to all Platform Enterprise plan customers as soon as the domains fulfill the technical requirements. Viewer Only permission will not be activated without the domain fulfilling all technical requirements.
