Users can access every new library though Anonymous access id disabled

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi guys,

I have a really strange stuff going on... I have Anonymous acces disabled on my MOSS portal in Central Administration:

Central Admin->Application Management->Authentication Providers->Default-> Anonymous Access is checked off


So I doesn't even have an option to enable it on any sites of this web application. But when I create a new Document Library all users have read permissions to it though I left only System Account at library permissions .

Am I missing something?

With Anonymous access disabled, is there any way to use an AJAX-enabled WCF Service?

I have a website where anonymous access is disabled but I want to user an ajax-enabled WCF service. Configuring the service's binding security to use "TransportCredentialOnly" with clientCredentialType="Windows" seems like the obvious thing to do; indeed, many posts in various places suggest this approach. Unfortunately, however, it doesn't work. I always get the error "Security settings for this service require 'Anonymous' Authentication but it is not enabled for the IIS application that hosts this service." How can I configure the service to function correctly. I'm running IIS 7.5 with .Net framework 4.0. Thanks.

Anonymous access for mobile users


I have set up anonymous access on a sharepoint 2010 publishing site, and that works fine. However, when I try to access the site from a mobile device ( or in a browser with a url of http://server/pages/default.aspx?Mobile=1), I get 401 Unauthorized.

In the IIS log, it's showing a 401 on: /_layouts/mobile/mblwp.aspx

Any suggestions for getting anonymous to work for mobile users?



Anonymous Web Parts Gallery? How do I give anonymous users access to the necessary web parts without


I'm thinking about having an anonymous web parts gallery, alongside the existing web parts gallery in my site collection. I need a way to give anonymous users access to 2 or 3 web parts without giving them full browsing rights to my web part gallery of ~100

I'm pretty sure this is necessary from a security point of view (please feel free to contradict me)

At the moment i'm trying to define a list that is a web part gallery, then i'll add certain web parts just to that list and add them to pages appropriately

Access denied for anonymous users on list webparts



I have problem with list webparts on Sharepoint foundation web site with anonymous access allowed.

Here is the configuration:

1. Sharepoint Foundation on win 2008 r2 server in standalone mode.

2. Anonymous access is allowed on the web site

3. All permissions are inherited from the top level site (anonymous users have reading allowed)

4. I've created custom xsl templates for rendering list content. They are all stored in Site Assets Library

5. I've added standard OOB list webparts to my webpart pages and linked those webparts to my custom xsl files.

6. everything works fine

7. But when I do an iisreset and try to reach my webpart page as anonymous user I get: "access denied. you do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource." error

8. When authenticated user visits problematic page everything is fine for anonymous user too. (Visiting page as authenticated user is enough)

9. While I'm receiving an error, when I try to access xsl file it shows up in a browser so the xsl file itself is accessible.

Anyone has an idea? There is no custom code here or some references it is just plain old list web part with xsl file.

It looks like cache problem but I'm not sure

Users unable to access IRM protected document in the target document library. Document being transfe



Iam using SharePoint 2007 on windows server 2003 R2 and RMS Server sp2.

A user (author) uploads a document in one (source) document library. Once uploaded it is rights managed by RMS. Another user (publisher) has to publish this document at another (target) document library. RMS is enabled on both these document libraries. whenever a user (reader) tries to read the published document from target document library, he gets an error which say's he doesn't have enough privileges. Reader has read permissions on all list items in the target document library. Here are the steps I follow.

1.       A user uploads a document into source document library. A publisher downloads this rights-managed document to publish it in target document library.
2.       SharePoint generates an issuance license (IL) for this document. The IL consists of:



How to restrict access to a SharePoint Document Form Library while allowing users to fill out and su


We have created a MS InfoPath form with it's corrsponding SharePoint Document Form Library, but would like to restrict the access to the SharePoint Document Form Library. After the user completes and submits the forms then he/she should not be able to go into the SharePoint Document Form Library and view the form. In order to allow users to fill out and submit an InfoPath form, Contributor level access is required to be granted. But Contributor level access allows them to view not only the form he/she has created but everyone else's which is not acceptable in this particluar situation. The solution we've come up with is to grant Contributor access to the SharePoint Document Form Library when the Submit button is pressed using stsadm grant the user Contibutor role. Then remove the access once the submission is completed.

We would be interested to know if there is a better process to accomplish this task. And, of equal importance, the coding that is required to execute this task.

Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 3


E nterprise applications can have a wide variety of data update requirements. Sometimes you need to save multiple rows of changes at once within a single transaction. Other times, the user must be allowed to enter multiple rows of data, send them to the database in a batch; and if a row or two fails, only the rows that succeeded should be committed and remain committed.

Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 2


Last month I explored the foundation of the Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block (DAAB) including how it all fits into an architecture (see Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 1).

A solid data access later (DAL) can benefit an application by hiding redundant tasks, helping handle exceptions more gracefully, helping clean up resources more efficiently, and providing a layer of abstraction from the database.

ASP.NET Allow Admin Users Access Basic Users Accounts


We have an ASP.Net web application currently released to the public, that uses Membership and Provider features and have our users assign to a "Basic" role.  What we are working on doing is developing an administrative site, so that administrators (presumably to be assigned an "Admin" role), are able to login to the administrative site, where they will have access to a list of users in the "Basic" role.
From the admin site, we want to allow the administrators to click on any of the "Basic" users and effectively be logged into there account (loading the user's profile information in the process, as is the case when a "Basic" user logs in), while still remaining lo

How to restrict folder access to users and theirs only


Hi. I created a web application using "Forms Authentication". 

There is a folder name "uploads", and it creates subfolders as username when they register. Web application stores users' files and images under their folder ("uploads/username")

I tried to find a way to restrict users to download and upload files to their folder only and couldn't find a good one. 

Then I came up with this idea that stores "web.config" file each time user registers and the web.config should look like below. Username will be changed dynamically according to username.

This method actually works but I am little worried if this is a good practice as far as performance wise. Because it'll create web.config files as many as users and there might be other holes that I don't recognize. 

I appreciate any advice or better suggestion for this problem.

"Only their own" allows users to edit, then shows access denied page

I am managing a WSS 3.0 portal.  I have created custom lists where a group has contribute permissions.  Under List Settings|Advanced Settings, when I set Edit Access to "Only their own" or "None", my test users can see the Edit Icon and the Edit Item menu option, and bring up the Edit Form.  When they click "OK", they get the Access Denied page.  My experience in that past is that they should not even been shown the option to edit, and they should get Access Denied if they somehow navigate to the EditForm.aspx page.  I even tested this on a brand new site, with three Links lists, each with different Edit Access Levels (All, None, Only their own).  I added one user with contribute permissions.  He had the same result: He could get all the way to EditForm.aspx, but got "Access Denied" when he submitted his changes.  What can I do to fix this?Christopher W.
