zfs allow filesystem|volume
Displays permissions that have been delegated on the specified filesystem or volume. See the other forms of zfs allow for more information.
Delegations are supported under Linux with the exception of mount, unmount, mountpoint, canmount, rename, and share. These permissions cannot be delegated because the Linux mount(8) command restricts modifications of the global namespace to the root user.

zfs allow [
-dl
] -e|everyone perm|@setname[
,perm|@setname
]… filesystem|volume
Delegates ZFS administration permission for the file systems to non-privileged users.
Allow only for the descendent file systems.
|everyone
Specifies that the permissions be delegated to everyone.
group[
,group
]…
Explicitly specify that permissions are delegated to the group.
Allow “locally” only for the specified file system.
user[
,user
]…
Explicitly specify that permissions are delegated to the user.
user|group[
,user|group
]…
Specifies to whom the permissions are delegated. Multiple entities can be specified as a comma-separated list. If neither of the -gu options are specified, then the argument is interpreted preferentially as the keyword everyone, then as a user name, and lastly as a group name. To specify a user or group named “everyone”, use the -g or -u options. To specify a group with the same name as a user, use the -g options.
perm|@setname[
,perm|@setname
]…
The permissions to delegate. Multiple permissions may be specified as a comma-separated list. Permission names are the same as ZFS subcommand and property names. See the property list below. Property set names, which begin with @, may be specified. See the -s form below for details.
If neither of the -dl options are specified, or both are, then the permissions are allowed for the file system or volume, and all of its descendents.
Permissions are generally the ability to use a ZFS subcommand or change a ZFS property. The following permissions are available:
NAME TYPE NOTES
_ _ _
allow subcommand Must also have the permission that is being allowed
bookmark subcommand
clone subcommand Must also have the create ability and mount ability in the origin file system
create subcommand Must also have the mount ability. Must also have the refreservation ability to create a non-sparse volume.
destroy subcommand Must also have the mount ability
diff subcommand Allows lookup of paths within a dataset given an object number, and the ability to create snapshots necessary to zfs diff.
hold subcommand Allows adding a user hold to a snapshot
load-key subcommand Allows loading and unloading of encryption key (see zfs load-key and zfs unload-key).
change-key subcommand Allows changing an encryption key via zfs change-key.
mount subcommand Allows mounting/umounting ZFS datasets
promote subcommand Must also have the mount and promote ability in the origin file system
receive subcommand Must also have the mount and create ability
release subcommand Allows releasing a user hold which might destroy the snapshot
rename subcommand Must also have the mount and create ability in the new parent
rollback subcommand Must also have the mount ability
send subcommand
share subcommand Allows sharing file systems over NFS or SMB protocols
snapshot subcommand Must also have the mount ability

zfs allow -c perm|@setname[
,perm|@setname
]… filesystem|volume
Sets “create time” permissions. These permissions are granted (locally) to the creator of any newly-created descendent file system.
zfs allow -s @setname perm|@setname[
,perm|@setname
]… filesystem|volume
Defines or adds permissions to a permission set. The set can be used by other zfs allow commands for the specified file system and its descendents. Sets are evaluated dynamically, so changes to a set are immediately reflected. Permission sets follow the same naming restrictions as ZFS file systems, but the name must begin with @, and can be no more than 64 characters long.

zfs unallow [
-r
] -c [
perm|@setname[
,perm|@setname
]…
] filesystem|volume
Removes permissions that were granted with the zfs allow command. No permissions are explicitly denied, so other permissions granted are still in effect. For example, if the permission is granted by an ancestor. If no permissions are specified, then all permissions for the specified user, group, or everyone are removed. Specifying everyone (or using the -e option) only removes the permissions that were granted to everyone, not all permissions for every user and group. See the zfs allow command for a description of the -ldugec options.
Recursively remove the permissions from this file system and all descendents.
zfs unallow [
-r
] -s @setname [
perm|@setname[
,perm|@setname
]…
] filesystem|volume
Removes permissions from a permission set. If no permissions are specified, then all permissions are removed, thus removing the set entirely.
