Why M-Files works faster for admin users?
Posted by Rami Taipale (M-Files) on 30 September 2019 11:09 AM

1     Overview

Sometimes there's a difference between the duration of some action depending from the user's status. If the user is a Vault Admin, the duration of an action can be much shorter than the duration of the same action done by a "basic user".

2     Reason

See the comparison between the permissions of a system administrator and a vault administrator from the User Guide:

https://m-files.com/user-guide/latest/eng/New_login_account_2.html#new_login_account_admin__server_roles_system_administrator

So, Vault Admin has the permissions to see and read all vault content (including deleted objects). When Vault Admin does e.g. search within M-Files Desktop, no security evaluation takes place and therefore the searches can be faster.
