Default account Quota by filesize

Postby eordona » Fri May 03, 2013 12:57 pm

It would be great if there was an option to be able to set limits on the AMOUNT of data a user could occupy in their account when using LDAP (AD).

We currently use LDAP (AD) for user authentication. Because there is no "local" user account profile created in WingFTP, I cannot control the amount of data each user can upload onto the server. Only if I create a "local" profile is this possible -- I don't want to create all those local accounts, the AD functionality is good.

Ideally I could have a master setting that basically restricts / limits each account to x number of MBs or GBs, etcetera.

Currently an over-ambitious user can fill the filesystem.

Please advise if 1. There is already current functionality to address this or 2. if adding this functionality is possible.

I think it is impossible, because in Wing FTP Server, it is "LDAP authentication", it is just an authentication, no user data will be stored, so for solving this issue, you can choose mapping a LDAP user to a local user.
