Problems with .acl files


#1

How do I create the .acl file to use the sharing tool?


#2

.acl files are created in a hierarchical structure deriving from the initial authorization created by the Pod process creation.
/private : no owner read/write, no access from outside the Pod (cannot be changed ???)
/public : owner full control (even from outside the Pod), read for everybody

At folder creation the new folder inherit from is parent folder
By default files from a folder use the folder .acl file.

Their update is done through the UI sharing process :
a) It begins with updating the folder sharing :
. changing the authorization for the folder
. allow for .acl file level and
. set the global authorization for the contents
b) at file level if allowed by the folder

I try to update the .acl and I get this error:
The sharing for this folder is now the default.Error reading ACL. status Can’t get headers to find ACL for <https://>: Failed to load <https://> Fetcher: fetch failed: TypeError: https:// is not a valid URL. status: 999: ( No ACL pointer https:// Can’t get headers to find ACL for <https://>: Failed to load <https://> Fetcher: fetch failed: TypeError: https:// is not a valid URL. status: 999)undefined

Sorry, not sure, been busy here at the nursing home
Better to have a link to a document explaining the proper way to edit sharing
