    poor search function! I looked for SUPERUSER.FILESYS.CHANGEPERMS but couldn't find it. Support could: >>Allows users to use the chmod command to change the permission bits of any file and to use the setfacl command to manage access control lists for any file.<<

      Hi, Wolfgang. Because the SUPERUSER.FILESYS.CHANGEPERMS command is not a BMC command, it is not documented on our portal. You can use a standard search outside the portal to locate the explanation that Support cited. Thanks for reaching out to us!
