SETTING USER PERMISSIONS IN SHAREPOINT 2013 ON-PREMISE RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have SP 2013 lists where users enter in data through InfoPath forms.  Most users have contributor rights.  My understanding is that this means they can view, add, update, and delete list items and documents.

    Does this mean, they have these rights over all documents, or strictly their own list items or documents?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    SharePoint has Web Application level permission, Site Collection level permission, Site/Subsite level permission, List/Library level permission, Item level permission.

    Suppose users have Contribute permission for lists, you can configure whether users have permission for all items or only items they created in List Settings > Advanced Settings. When a new item is created, it inherits permission from list, which means users also have Contribute permission for these items (depend on how you configured in List Settings > Advanced Settings).

    However, if items stop inheriting permissions from lists, which means items have their unique permission, and users are removed from items permission, these users would not have permission to view/add/update/delete items.

    Thus, users’ permissions of list items are depend on these item level permissions.

  • The Contributor permission that you have given to them is List Level Permission.So ,It means users with Contribute Permission on that document  can update ,delete all the documents for that library.

    To restrict user to strictly have rights only on their documents , give them Item Level permissions.

    To do that you can go to List Setting=>Advanced Settings

    Select

    1. Read items that are created by user

    2. Create item and edit items that were created by the user
