This feature enables supervisors to implement access policy for files uploaded using MetaDefender Vault.
Enabling supervisor approval feature
In order to enable Supervisor Approval feature please go to Supervisor Approval → Global Settings.
Skipping supervisor approval process is possible for the following cases:
Never: default process, every file needs supervisor approval before being available for download
When sanitized: files that are sanitized will be automatically approved (do not require supervisor approval)
After time span: f iles will be automatically approved after the specified period of time elapses
A user with the supervisor role can perform approval or revoke approval for files. The local administrator account is always a supervisor, but you can configure more supervisors by going to Supervisor Approval → Setup Supervisor page.
This configuration page allows you to specify one or more supervisor for each of your included organization units. Learn how to include or exclude an organizational unit by going to User Filtering Configuration.
Each supervisor can only approve or reject files of his supervised users (in the same organizational unit). An organizational unit can have any number of supervisors, including none.
Please note that if no supervisors are assigned to an organizational unit, the only user that can approve or deny access to files is the local administrator.
Click the Update button when you are done.
