Allow more than 1 sub folder structure under the producer's mailbox path, with automatic asingment of permissions

Currently, SFG channel creation, automatically generates mailboxes and user's permissions for mailboxes with up to 1 sub folder. For example: /ProducerName/ConsumerName.

However, the customer needs are to support more than 1 sub folders. For example: /ProducerName/ConsumerName/OtherFolder

In this case, SFG automatically generates the subfolders structure, but doesn't assign the user's permissions for the intermediate folders (in the example, ConsumerName)

This lack of permissions causes that a Partner cannot browse using a FTP/SFTP client through the folder tree.

This could be solved by manually assign the permission on the intermediate folders to the Partner. However the customer needs are that this assignment should be made automatically when the channel is created.

How will this idea be used?

A customer uses a template with a producer's mailbox path that includes more than 1 subfolder structure, and needs to onboard several partners without to manually assign mailboxes permissions (which is already done automatically when there is just 1 sub folder)
