Item/Document permissions affect Library/List permissions

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
When I change the permissions on a item/document in a library/list the permissions are also changed on the library/list even though I stopped inheritance.  When I change the permissions on the library/list it also changes permissions on items/documents in that list even if inheritance is removed.

Item/Document vs. Libray/List permissions

When I change the permissions on a item/document in a library/list the permissions are also changed on the library/list even though I stopped inheritance.  When I change the permissions on the library/list it also changes permissions on items/documents in that list even if inheritance is removed.

New Document Library in a subsite is inheriting permissions from wrong site

I have a site collection (using the out-of-the-box Business Intelligence site template) called "BI Home". A couple weeks ago I created a bunch of subsites (Finance, Regulatory, Marketing, etc.) all using the BI site template, and then created a Document Library called "Reports" in each one of those subsites. Those are all working as expected. Yesterday I needed to create a new subsite (again, a BI site just off the root site collection) called "Operations". I created the subsite, and then created the "Reports" document library underneath it.  When I went to modify the permissions of the new document library (located here: /Operations/Reports), it said it was inheriting permissions from it's parent: "BI Home".  Why would this be?  Shouldn't the parent be "Operations" ?? All my other sites' "Reports" folders are inheriting permission from their respective parent, but any new sites I create seem to have this issue. Thanks in advance for any insight someone may provide! [SharePoint 2010 RTM on Win2k8R2 using SQL 2008R2 RTM on Win2k8R2]

SPD 2010 status 'Canceled' when using action 'Replace List Item Permissions'



I have been experiencing issues with using action "Replace List Item Permissions" with SPD 2010.
When adding an new list item the workflow runs as expected.
When editing the same item later, the workflowstatus gets "Canceled" and the joblog tells me:

09/22/2010 15:55:14.41  w3wp.exe (0x3584) 0x37B4 SharePoint Foundation Workflow Infrastructure 72fv Unexpected AutoStart Workflow: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: Recursive workflows are not permitted. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAutostartEventReceiver.<>c__DisplayClass1.<AutoStartWorkflow>b__0(SPSite superUserSite, SPWeb superUserWeb)

The Workflow uses the options
- "Start workflow automatically when an item is created"
- "Start workflow automatically when an item is changed"
My environment is:
- MOSS 2010 Enterprise RTM english with german languagepacks
- SharePoint Designer 2010, Version 14.0.4760.1000

Any ideas why this error is occurring and how to resolve it?
Thanks, Stefan.

expense claim application - how to set up item level permissions on expense claim document set


Hi All,

I want to create an app that replaces the existing paper-form based expenses reimbursement process with a SharePoint solution.

I have created a content type called an Expense Form Set ( it includes an excel sheet for the user to enter expenses and also includes any digitised receipts associated with the claim )

The claimant can create an expense form set in an Expense claims document library and the Expense Claims Approver is notified, they approve or reject and reimburse if necessary.

however there is a stumbling block.

How do we prevent anyone else other than the person who submitted the claim and the person who needs to approve/reject from seeing the expense claim.

Is turning on content approval the only way to do this.

If so then the act of approving the content will make it visible to anyone else who has view or contribute access to the library.

thanks and regards,

I hope some one will  respond to me and solve my problem .

Why do you need delete permissions to edit the file name of a document in a document library?How can

I have a document library and a group of users who should be able to upload documents and only change the metadata. They should not be able to edit the document or delete the document. So I setup a permission level with Add and Edit Items. When the user uploads the document, the edit form is shown where he/she changes the file name and comment fields, but the users get "Access Denied " error. I noticed that the error must be because the user is changing the file name field, as the document is uploaded and the comments field is also updated but the file name is not changed. But if I give Delete permissions to these users, the error disappears. I do not want to give them Delete permissions but I want to allow them to change the file name, can anyone help me here about how to achieve this? Also How do I prevent them from editing the document but still they can edit the metadata?

Any help would be greatly appreciated..


How to write an event to manage permissions on a document while uploading, depending on custom field



I am trying to find a solution to manage permissions on a document, while uploading it into a document library. This event has to be fired if a custom field is populated (it's a check box field).

How to write an event for this, i tried writing ItemAdded event, but this is getting fired as soon as a document is uploaded, before coming to the page, where we populate all the fields and hit check in.

can i capture Check-in event.

Please advise.


Customized list views and permissions to specific group users

Hi, I have created a custom list with 20 field/columns in wss3.0. I had four user groups(group1, group2,....3.....4) in my site collection with various levels of permissions. I have created four custom views (Group 1 view, Group2 view,...etc)in my list. Each view contains only certain fields out of 20. For example group 1 view contains field 1, 5, 7,10 and 13 of every item in my list.  My requirement is that when a user login, who is a member of group1. he should be able to view only Group1 view fields. He should not able to view other field/columns. I tried creating another field/column called as restricted users and wrote group names in that. In the View edit page I selected " show item when the column 'restricted users' is equl to [Me]. But I did not get it. Kindly help it out any one either programmatically or UI based. Thanks   

List View Permissions and Views for Web Parts

My fellow developers and I are going in circles a bit with our new Sharepoint 2010.  This question probably has several different answers.   I have a list of grades and comments that our Team Leaders want to create and save on Sharepoint.  When saved, the user who was graded should be able to see their own grades.  Its a pretty simple requirement and I'm 90% of the way there.   I created a list with the required fields, and two separate views.  The first view filters the list by the user's name so they see on their grades.  The second view shows all grades in a grouped order by the person who assigned the grade.  To make this second view more readable, I added some formatting with Sharepoint Designer 2010.  It looks nice.   Here's where the speed bump occurs.  I create a web parts page for each view.  The page showing only the user grades works as expected.  The other page, however, shows the list in a view that I didn't create.  No matter what view I select from the "Edit Web Part" menu, it always shows this strange view.  If I select the list, it says its current view is "Default".  The second view I created is set as default, but its not the view I see.  If I change the current view from list menu to the second view specifically, it shows up correctly. &n
