Get-QPerceivedOwners

Calculates the perceived owners for a resource. You can use this information to determine the true business owners and custodian for data.

Note: The perceived owner for data is calculated from the resource activity history or security information collected by Data Governance Edition. Activity is collected based on the aggregation time span settings and recorded in the Data Governance Resource Activity database.

Syntax:

Get-QPerceivedOwners [-ResourcePath] <String> [-ResourceType] <QAM.Common.Interfaces.ResourceType> [[-NumberOfOwners] [<Int32>]] [<CommonParameters>]

Get-QResourceAccess

Retrieves the security information for selected resources from a specific managed host, and child objects whose security differs from the parent. You can retrieve file, folder, share, administrator rights, local operating system rights, and service identity rights.

Specify the type of rights you would like to see resource access information for. Valid values are:

  • NTFS\Folder
  • NTFS\File
  • Windows Computer\Share
  • Windows Computer\Local User Rights
  • Windows Computer\ Operating System Administrative Rights

Resources

(Optional) Specify the specific resource you would like to see resource access information for. This parameter only applies to files, folders or shares.

To get file and folder security information, specify the network path for remote managed hosts or the local path for local managed hosts.

To get share security information, specify the share name only.

ExcludeSubObjectDeviations (Optional) Specify this parameter to only return the security data for the root objects specified. If this parameter is not specified, the cmdlet returns security information for children below the roots where security differs from the parent.
