SP2013's Override List Behaviour vs SP2010's Override Check Out permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In SharePoint 2010 the "Override Check Out" permission is described as:"Discard or check in a document which is checked out to another user".

    In SharePoint 2013, this permission has been replaced with "Override List Behaviors" and described as: "Discard or check in a document which is checked out to another user, and change or override settings which allow users to read/edit only their own items".

    Does anyone know what "change or override settings which allow users to read/edit only their own items" actually allows the user to perform?

  • Hi GazTop2,

    The "change or override settings which allow users to read/edit only their own items" only allows the user to read or edit the items which is created by them.

    The user with “Override List Behaviors” permission cannot edit the items which are not created by them.

  • I don't quite understand your question, do you mean the setting in advanced settings?

  • Thanks both. I have since found that the "Item-Level Permissions" advance setting only applies to Lists and not Document Libraries. It didn't help that I was only looking at Document Libraries.
