icacls - grant permissions for more than one user RRS feed

  • Question

  • is it possible to grant permissions for multiple groups at the same time?

    for example:

    icacls "<root folder>" /grant "group 1" + "group 2" + "group 3" :F /t

    in case it's not possible what is the alternative way to do it?

  • This is not a utility forum.  Your question is not a scripting question.  You should post in the Windows General forum for utilities.

    No.  You can use multiple groups.  The alternative is to use one line per group.

  • The system utilizes are handled by the Windows General forum or the Windows tools forum.  For ICACLS I would suggest the Windows Security forum also.

    icacls D:\test /GRANT group1:(R) group2:(F) group3:(N) ...
