Item permissions on an Issue Tracker RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created an Issue Tracker for assigning tasks.  I am wondering if there is a way for certain fields within the Issue Tracker Item to not be editable?  So for example I could assign something with a due date and the person receiving the item could not change that date. Is there a way (or better tool) to manage this?

    I am using SharePoint Server 2007 ver. 12.x

  • Does the information that you want to lock down change frequently?

    Here's a solution that allows you to control the fields.

    be sure to check out the codeplex link as well.

    Not sure if that's what you're after or not, but I'm guessing there is some way to use jQuery to achieve your goal.

  • The paper http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/SecureField describes a method to leverage SharePoint extensibility and built-in item to level security to allow applying column-level permissions to a custom field type. This is accomplished through the use of a lookup field as the column, with behind the scenes ties to another list that contains the secure values and a method to provision those values back to the lookup only for users with valid permissions.

  • Is there a way to modify the settings or code to make it work?  If so what level access would I need to have?
