I am managing a linux server where I want developers to run a springboot application which will generate files and folders. Those newly application created files and folders must inherit the parent group ID to let other developers manipulate the generated information.
chmod g+s is for setting and inheriting the setgid.
setfacl -m g::rwx is for setting the group access permission
In this example we assume that we already have a group named “devops”
sudo mkdir /company sudo chgrp -R devops /company sudo chmod -R g+s /company sudo setfacl -m g::rwx /company
Any new folder or files created inside /company will have a default group devops
which has the permission to read, write and execute.
