    I’m using Press Permit to control the permissions for uploaded files – when files are uploaded to a given page, it inherits that page’s Read permissions. This is great.

    However, I am currently in the position where I am creating new pages with the old page content copied over, without the same permission Read permission configuration on the new pages. As a result, these links fail to work until I change the permissions on each individual media file, allowing them be viewed across both pages. (Ability to view is controlled via two distinct Press Permit groups.)

    Even if I use each page’s “Add Media” button along with the “files uploaded to this page” filter, it’s fairly laborious to update all attachment pages to have the proper permissions. Is there a way I can do this in bulk? I’d simply like to add one additional group to the Read permissions.
