Reviewing access to File Explorer

Abstract

Reviewing access to the Sitecore File Explorer application.

The Sitecore File Explorer application provides read/write access to the files in the Sitecore website folder including those containing sensitive data such as connection strings. By default, File Explorer is available to members of the Sitecore Client Developing, Sitecore Client Maintaining, and Developer roles.

Although File Explorer is not directly available as an icon on the Launchpad, we recommend that you limit access to only the relevant users.

The Sitecore File Explorer application allows access to files with sensitive data.
