This configuration parameter prevents users from editing a file in a directory using dzedit that is reached by following a symbolic link (symlink) if the user already has permissions to edit the directory. Edits are also prevented on all sub-directories on the file path.

In some cases, if a user that already has permissions to write to a directory but invokes dzedit to edit a file in that directory which contains a symlink, they may edit the linked file as well.

If set to false, this configuration parameter will not allow a user to edit files reached by symbolic link by using dzedit.

It is strongly recommended that you keep the specified value as false.

For example:

dzdo.edit.follow: false

The default value of this configuration parameter is false.
