Permission management with OpenCMIS

Hello, im trying to manage permissions to files using OpenCMIS, 

when i try to to change a file's owner with the permisssion "{}ownable.TakeOwnership" i still get an error when that user tries to manage access for that file giving me a permission denied error, the user can still see and delete the file. it seems like the only way to change the file's owner is through the Share UI, is there anyway to change a user's owner using CMIS?

Hi @motazsouid,

You can use the ReST API to change ownership.   As for CMIS, this thread might be useful, highlighting some of the limitations of CMIS.
