I’m not sure if this is even something that’s even possible, but figured I’d ask.
Because of an NFS limitation on one of our storage appliances, the storage can only see the first 16 groups that a user is a member of. In interactive SSH sessions, we work around this by setting the primary group to be one the one of the directory we want to access. A user will do ‘newgrp groupA’, then be able to cd /projects/groupA. Otherwise, they’ll get a permission denied.
Is there any particular setting or environment, or ruby code that can be used so that when a user either changes directory in the web interface, or maybe when project areas in the Files dropdown are enumerated that a newgrp can be issued or a primary group set for access?
