Advanced Setting: Item-level Permission RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    Would like to find out how this List setting "Item-level Permissions" work?
    I had selected "items users can read all items" and "items users can edit only their own items".
    In the site permission, I had granted READ to all task owners.

    However, when the task owner login to the task library, they also not able to edit the task that had assigned to them.

    Anyone can help to advise how it works?  In order to allow task owner to be able to edit their own task.

    Many thanks.
    Demi

    Hello,

     

                Please clear all users from the list and list item. After that, the first thing you need to do is let each of the item to break the permission inheritance from the list. Then grant the user with “read”  permission in list level. Then grant the same user with “design” permission in item level.          

                After all, the permissions of both item level and list level are not configured in “advanced settings”. The list permissions are set in “permission for this list” under list settings. The item permissions are set through click “manage permissions” of dropdown list of the item.

     

                   Hope it can help you,

    Unique Permissions
     
    Unique permissions on a document, list, library or subsite simply means that the area in question does not inherit the same permissions and security configuration as its parent.  For a subsite this would mean that it has different permissions than its top level site and for a document this would mean it has different permissions than its parent library.
     
    You would want to enable unique permissions if you want to limit access to a particular area or give greater access to certain users or groups beyond their overall permissions on the site.
     
    Enabling Unique Permissions
     
    File Level: Click the drop on the individual file and select permissions.  Select Manage Permissions.  Use the Actions drop down and select Edit Permissions.  Click through any warning.  Now you can edit the permissions of this particular document.
     
    Subsite Site Level: Click Site Actions > Site Settings > Advanced Permissions > Actions > Edit Permissions.  Click through any warning.  Now you can edit the permissions for this individual sub-site. 
     
    Click Groups> Settings > Set up groups and create new security groups for this sub-site only.  Add users to these groups to complete your configuration.

    Hope that helps.  - Ike

  • Hi,

    Actually I would like to know how to make use of the "Item-Level Permissions"?
    Which is in the List Table Setting > Advance Setting > Item-Level Permissions (2nd section).

    Whereby my users' Access Permissions are setup in the Site Level without changing any permissions in the List Table Permissions and individual Item Permissions (inherited parent permission - Site Level).

    Thanks
