Issue:
Permissions during File Transfer are not carried over.
Resolution:
Detailed Description and Symptoms

You use the Automic File Transfer object to move files from one unix agent to another. The files you are moves have file permissions set for the user, group and world. Then they arrive on the new unix machine, they file have different permissions set.


Solution

?Automic does not control the permission on the file that get created on a target system. The default permissions is control by the OS umask setting.

 
If you need the permissions changed after a file transfer, create another job that will change the permission on the file after the file transfer job completes.
