Custom Level Permissions.

    Question

  • MOSS 2007

    I have been trying to figure out if there is a way to create a custom permission level that will allow a user to manage item permissions but not site permissions?  I would like to be able to allow my power-users to manage their own lists, document libraries, etc. but not the site permissions.  

    All replies are appreciated,

    Best Regards,

  • The way I was able to solve this question was pretty simple.  What I ended up doing was create a custom level permission and applied it to the SharePoint group on the site level.  Then on my lists/libraries/etc. I broke permission inheritance and changed the group with the custom level permission to full control.  This allows my power users to have full control over their lists and libraries while not able to change the site permissions.

    Now only if I could figure out how not to allow my users not to change the content types I would be golden!!!! If I figure this out before anyone else replies, I will post the answer.

    You asked the question so you should also tell us the answer. That's the whole point of forums.

     

    If no answer comes, I'll delete the entire thread.

  • Hi,

     

    As far as I understand, you would like to set specific security rights automatically based on who the user is, content type. You need to write some codes to do that, you can create an event handler that will automatically set security permissions based on the content type used to create the item.

     

    For the detailed information about how to achieve that, please refer to the following articles:

    Please post new questions in a new thread. As far as I can see you had already solved the question that was the topic of this thread - and in that case the thread is closed.
