Sensor Share folder and ACL permissions



Hi, I would like to know how I can add a sensor to show the user and groups that have permissions in shared folders. I have found GetWMIObject sensor and now I need to expand using something like Get-ACL.

thank you.

Hello Alex,

Unfortunately there is no native sensor for such request. Also, I can't think of a useful visualization of the data. A sensor channel can't show any strings which would result in unreadable, tricky to read sensor messages with no possibility to filter or alarm.

Please note that this is nothing that I would recommend to monitor with PRTG.
