Share a folder just for an application...help needed !

    Question

  • Hi experts .

    I have an application that works on the network and users can edit  and view data into a shared folder by that application's functions but to make this app work i have to share that folder with full access to all users .

    because of security issue is that possible to permit editing shared folder just for this application ? and prevent editing this shared folder with direct access or something els ?

  • Hiya, 

    If you can identify which account the application is accessing this share with, you can grant access to this account explicitly. 

    Hopefully it has been set up with an application account if not, it might be using the Network Service account.
