reset_password_XX.csv and permissions

Question asked by wsupport111 on Nov 7, 2017

I am using Alfresco Community and we have had these csv files build up in our repository for a long time

They have been called reset_password_{number}.csv and have contained the login details of all users both internal and external

However only recently all our users have been able to see them

Before this they were not visible by our users and only visible to the admin user

I do not know what the permissions of these files were before this was brought to my attention but when I checked after it was set to inherit permission and was set to the Everyone group.


This may not be related but we have recently enabled Alfresco Share so we can access the sites etc from Windows Explorer by browsing to the {server_ip}/alfresco; would enabling this feature change the permissions in the repository folder?


Please can someone help me


What generates these files?

When do they generate?

Can I stop it?

Why did the permissions change?

How do I stop this from happening again?


Thanks in advance
