"photo" not available for domain users

Unread post by pgotze » Thu May 03, 2018 8:55 am

I am using Photo station for albums, stored mainly in automatically created network share "photo" , which works quite well. permissions are defined not in DSM, but directly in photo Station web application.

However i have found out, that if i use domain user (using Active Directory package of Synology), if i login to DSM, i dont see this network share "photo" and i have no way how to set correct permissions. I put domain users to have right in photo station we app, so in Web application of photostation i can see images and album,s, but i cant manage these files directly in DSM.

Also on network i can map this network share "photo", it tells i dont have permissions for that. Its problem of only this one network share, all other i can easily manage by set permissions in DSM directly.

Does anybody have this behavior? Do you see "photo" network share by domain user?

Thanks.

Once you create accounts in Photo Station, DSM no longer manages the accounts. Read this Synology Knowledge Base article.

Hi,

this i know, as i wrote in my article, i set up permissions of domain users in Photo Station web application. Its specific for "photo" network share. But even if its done, domain user can see and work with photos via web application, in DSM he cannot see it , he cannot map it, therefore cannot manipulate it in DSM or via network share on the network. And thats the problem.

He cannot see it or map it because as a DSM user he does not have permission. He only has permission as a photo station user. Unfortunately DSM does not allow setting permissions once they have been set in Photo Station.

I searched /var/packages/PhotoStation/conf and did not see a way to resolve your problem. Additional searches of forums and the knowledge base did not help.
