disable "create root level folders" permission on existing employee users

All of our employee users have enabled the permission that says "Create root-level folders in 'shared folders'"
  


Is there any way to disable this for all the employee users?

 

I thought that I could change that with the ShareFile User Management Tool. I edited the "Sync Users" rule, and de-selected the "Create root folders" permission, and scheduled the change within UMT.





None of the existing employee users were updated.

 

So my question is, do I really have to disable this function on every employee user one by one? This is ridiculous...

Do you use policy based management? If so you should be able to create a new policy with that permission disabled, and then update your UMT rules so that users are assigned the new policy

No, we just create rules based on AD group membership.
