UMASK

Last update May 15, 2015

This parameter is used to set the permissions that are assigned to a file when the file is being created on a UNIX system for the first time. The value is expressed as an octal number (base 8). The octal number has the same meaning as in the standard UNIX umask command. This value is removed from the XCOM default of 666 (rw-rw-rw) for files and 777(rwxrwxrwx) for directories.

Range: 000 to 777

Default: 022

For directories -- Permissions are set for a created directory to 7xx, no matter what owner UMASK value that was specified. Group and other permissions, represented by xx, represent the permissions with the specified UMASK removed.

For files - While the file is being transferred, CA XCOM Data Transport sets permissions for a created file to 6xx. The xx represents the permissions with the specified UMASK removed. After the transfer has been completed, CA XCOM Data Transport sets the owner permission with the specified UMASK removed.
