For items added through NFS, HCP sets the initial UID, GID, and POSIX permissions to values determined by the NFS client. For items added through HTTP, WebDAV, CIFS, or SMTP, HCP does not set values for these properties.

When you use NFS to view POSIX ownership and permission values for any item for which these values have not been set, HCP displays default values. For UID and GID, these values are determined by the namespace configuration. For POSIX permissions, these values are 555 for objects and 777 for directories.

You can use the CIFS or NFS protocol to change the UID, GID, and permissions for an object.
