This configuration parameter prevents a user from editing files using the dzedit command in a directory that the user already has permissions to edit using their own account.

If a user who can already write to a directory with their own account uses dzedit to edit the same directory, it is possible that they may unintentionally edit arbitrary files in the directory if wild cards are used to specify the files the user intends to edit.

Set this configuration parameter to true to specify whether dzedit will check the user’s directory permissions, and deny the user the ability to modify files in the directory when they run as root if they have sufficient permissions to edit the directory using their own account.

For example:

dzdo.edit.checkdir: true

The default value of this configuration parameter is true.
