Enabling or disabling SFTP bypass traverse checking

You can enable or disable SFTP traverse checking by setting the sftp.bypass_traverse_checking option to on or off, respectively. By default, this option is set to off.

About this task

If the sftp.bypass_traverse_checking option is set to off, when a user attempts to access a file using SFTP, Data ONTAP checks the traverse (execute) permission for all directories in the path to the file. If any of the intermediate directories does not have the "X" (traverse permission), Data ONTAP denies access to the file. If the sftp.bypass_traverse_checking option is set to on, when a user attempts to access a file, Data ONTAP does not check the traverse permission for the intermediate directories when determining whether to grant or deny access to the file.
