If the note next to Ignore permissions said “Use on Windows systems” rather than “Use on FAT file systems” this would probably have saved me an hour or so. All files created on windows were coming through as read only on ubuntu,
All the other apps used on my Synology NAS offers an option to override the permissions of files/folders, for instance Transmission, Sonarr, Couchpotato, all have an option to override either the umask, or to chmod or even chown the files they create.
I share something from my own computer, which has right set as user only (700/600), towards my NAS, which has its own ACL management, but for this to work the files and folders must be available to the Unix group, and not just the syncthing user running the daemon (770/660).
And I don’t want to change my permissions to give rights to a local computer group so that users on the nas can access the files.
Basically at the moment it’s only possible to replicate permissions (which in my opinion doesn’t mean much when the user:group on both sides are not the same at all), or ignore permissions and hope that the system on which you run ST will let you use umask correctly.
Can’t we have a new configuration per folder that let you override the permissions with new ones?
@calmh, i played around with the startup script on Synology, and got something working (or WIP at least) with proper umask, however it seems the proper umask is not applied when ST first creates a folder (when you add a folder or accept a folder from another device).
