WMS Publishing Points ACL Authorization

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

This plug-in allows you to create ACLs for the publishing points on your server. You can assign the following access permissions to users or groups through the properties sheet of this plug-in:

  • Read. Permits a user or application to open, play, fast-forward, or rewind content.

  • Write. Permits a user or application to write content to your server.

  • Create. Permits a user or application to create new publishing points on your server, when combined with Write permissions.

This plug-in is enabled with the following access permissions by default:

  • Everyone. The Everyone group has Read permissions only.

  • BUILTIN\Administrators. The Administrators group has full permissions.

This plug-in is useful when you want to set restrictions on all content on a specific publishing point or server or when the publishing point content is a live stream. If you are using push distribution from an encoder, be sure that the encoder administrator is a member of a group that has both write and create permissions or assign the necessary permissions to the encoder administrator by using this plug-in.
