New to Sharepoint companyweb and deleted all folder permissions by mistake

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello.  I am just delving into the world of Sharepoint and testing to see if it will help our company meet it's needs for accessing files remotely as well as giving us collaberation abilities we currently don't have.  We recently purchased a new Windows 2008 Small Business Server which includes Sharepoint 3.0 and I've been messing around with the companyweb page.  My current goal is to emulate how we are using network drives.  There is a drive for each department and then a shared drive where common files for eveyrone are stored.  Rights are maintained using security groups. In the companyweb, inside the Document's section I created a new library named "Department Files" then within that created folders for Accounting, Customer Service, HR etc.  Being completely new to Sharepoint I was editing the permissions to the Accounting folder but forgot to add the domain administrator before deleting the existing rights.  Now the folder is no longer visible and I can't figure out how to edit the rights to it. The permissions that were removed were: CompanyWeb Members, CompanyWeb Owners, and CompanyWeb Visitors.

Setting permissions of a specific SharePoint workflow


We have a very simple workflow whereby an document placed in a public library (INBOX) is moved it to a private library (VERIFY) and then deleted. The workflow works correctly when someone who has access to the VERIFY library drops a record into the INBOX library.  However it does not work when the user does not have access to the VERIFY library.

I was told that I need to "set the AD group associated with a specific SharePoint workflow" but cannot find any reference to this in SPD.

Permissions issue for custom web service in the _vti_bin folder.

Hello, I have created a custom ASMX webservice that returns in JSON format so that I can call the data from JQuery on SharePoint page content.  I placed it in the ISAPI (_vti_bin) folder and it works just fine when I go directly to the web service and call it the way JQuery calls it: /_vti_bin/ServiceabilityCheck.asmx/GetSystemIDByZIPCode?ipaddress= Which returns: <string>{"SystemID":"5"}</string> When I try to call it from the SharePoint site with JQuery, it errors out and gives an unspecified error.  Fiddler shows {"Message":"Authentication failed.","StackTrace":null,"ExceptionType":"System.InvalidOperationException"} as the response from the web service call. When I have the webservice on an IIS web app outside of SharePoint, it works fine.  I have anonymous access enabled on the SharePoint site, why would it give me this error?John Chapman | Blog: http://www.johnchapman.name

Read only or full control? ThanksBest

User permissions in SharePoint 2010 act differently in http and https

I installed SharePoint 2010, created a site (complete with a document library), and assigned user permissions.  Additionally, I set up certificate authentication for all users.  Two problems occur: 1. As the system administrator, when I access the https site, I no longer have permissions to add/edit users 2. When user's, who have permissions to edit/add a document/folder click on "Add document" or the folder icon to add a new folder, they get an error. Any help is much appreciated.

Alternative solution to folder level permissions

I have a document library with multiple levels of folders that group sets of documents. Each folder has unique permissions setup. Ran into issue with URL length limitation because of multiple levels. I am looking at an alternative solution using meta data columns and views to categorize data. Everything is fine except I am not sure how to implement security akin to permissions on folder. How would I implement security based on meta data columns ? One soution that I can think of is creating workflows using SPD. Are there any other solutions for this ?

Create report that lists every user with permissions for each folder

I would like to have a report that will list each user with it's roles for every folder. We have a very large RS database with a lot of folders, we need some better way to keep track of permissions. I created a report that utilizes "GetPolicies" from http://localhost/reportserver/ReportService2005.asmx but I have to feed a folder name to get list of users. I can also (by using subreport) list all folders with users. However, I am not able to produce a report where I have it broken by user. any idea?
