Modify File Attributes Action

Change the attributes, commonly found within the properties of an existing file. For example, you could make a file writable for administrators but read only for all other users, at logon. Each attribute can be Set, Unset or Ignored. When the action is triggered on a user’s endpoint, those attributes defined, will be applied to the selected file.
