Allow user to open a file from an Application, but not let them access the file through windows explorer
Posted on 2013-12-18
I have an application that allow users to open drawings for parts (Pdf Files) from a Link in our ERP. The files are stored in a directory called DWG (we use dfs) on a file server.
I don't want the user to "see" the files in the dwg folder, I only want them to be able to open the files using our ERP application. I have tried tweaking security but it seems like I have to give them read and list to be able to view the files.
Is there anything I can do to a folder that allows them to open a file in read only from a hyperlink that does not allow them to go to the folder itself and list / open files?
Our Erp shows the file path, so using a hidden share would not help.
Any Help is Appreciated.
