Fully supported and tested on Linux (ext4 filesystem), partial support for FreeBSD.

See setfacl and acl manpages for more details.

One of --entry or --source must be used.

Optional Multiple Parameters

entry

Set ACL entry following getfacl output syntax. Must be used if --source is not used.

Optional Parameters

Read ACL entries from stdin or file. Ordering of entries is not important. When reading from file, comments and empty lines are ignored. Must be used if --entry is not used.

file

Create/change file with __file using user:group:mode pattern.

Boolean Parameters

default

Set all ACL entries as default too. Only directories can have default ACLs. Setting default ACL in FreeBSD is currently not supported.

remove

Remove undefined ACL entries. mask and other entries can't be removed, but only changed.

Examples

__acl /srv/project \
    --default \
    --recursive \
    --remove \
    --entry user:alice:rwx \
    --entry user:bob:r-x \
    --entry group:project-group:rwx \
    --entry group:some-other-group:r-x \
    --entry mask::r-x \
    --entry other::r-x

# give Alice read-only access to subdir,
# but don't allow her to see parent content.

__acl /srv/project2 \
    --remove \
    --entry default:group:secret-project:rwx \
    --entry group:secret-project:rwx \
    --entry user:alice:--x

__acl /srv/project2/subdir \
    --default \
    --remove \
    --entry group:secret-project:rwx \
    --entry user:alice:r-x

# read acl from stdin
