File permissions in Vault for ingested files (Unix)

Issue

Every time, the files are ingested in vault, new sub-folders are created in the Storage folder. I want to ensure that these subfolders are auto created with the READ All permissions.

Please advise how this can be done.

Cause

Right now, the Vault server processes always set their umask to 027.

That means when they create files the "read all" permissions will be masked off.

 

Resolution

UPDATED: September 7, 2017


Without some sort of code change, they wouldn't be able to get read for other users on new files/directories.

They can still use group to get part way there, but if they don't want to use that this would be an enhancement to the product

Environment Details

All versions of Vault running on UNIX platforms
