Folder and File Permissions

Folder and File Permissions (Master Data Services)

 

Applies To: SQL Server 2016

When you install Master Data Services, folders and files are installed in the file system at the installation path you specify for SQL Server shared features. If you use the default installation path for SQL Server shared features, the installation path for Master Data Services is drive:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\130\Master Data Services. Although you can change the shared features installation path, be aware of permissions that are inherited from the parent folder and permissions that are explicitly set for Master Data Services.

The Microsoft SQL Server folder, the Master Data Services folder, and most subfolders and files inherit permissions from the parent folder specified in SQL Server Setup. If you choose the default installation location, the parent folder that permissions are inherited from is drive:\Program Files. The following table describes the default permissions for Program Files.

If you modify default permissions for Program Files, or you choose a different installation location, the Master Data Services folders and files inherit permissions from their parent folder accordingly, and the permissions might differ from those described in the following table.

Program Files Default Permissions
Group or account namePermissions
CREATOR OWNERSpecial permissions
SYSTEMSpecial permissions
AdministratorsSpecial permissions
UsersRead & execute, List folder contents, Read
TrustedInstallerList folder contents, Special permissions

The MDSTempDir folder and the Master Data Services Web.config file (in the WebApplication folder) do not inherit permissions. They have permissions that are set explicitly when you install Master Data Services, regardless of the installation path you choose. Do not modify these permissions.
