How to check who is the person that change the list permission or the list item permission?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Does SharePoint out of the box has any reports that report the change of permission to list/list item?

User A change the permission of List Item A by adding a new user
User B change the permission of List Item A by removing a user

Thank in advance.

Item level permission for Custom List in sharepoint


Hi all,

  I have created a custom list with work flow associated with that. The workflow takes the item through different levels of approval.

My workflow scenario is like Say an initiator add an item, which will go to manager for approval. When the manager approves, few columns in the current list will get updated. On manager approval it will be forwarded to head of department. Again when the Dept head takes an action, the column values of the list get updated. For all these users i have set Contribute permission. But the problem is that an item started by an initiator should not be editable or deleted by other users using the pull down menu that appears for each item. Only the owner of the item and manager should have permission to edit it using the pull down menu. When i tried changing the edit access for the item through Advance settings-->Item level permission --Edit access being set to "Only their own" while manager or dept head approving i get an access denied error message.

Can any one please suggest me what is the work around for this?

Customized Announcement List (Possible Permission Issues)

I am working in SharePoint 2007 with a portal site and related subsites for the various divisions within the company. I have created a custom announcement list template which is used on each subsite so that each deivision has it own announcements. I have a cotnent query web part on the main portal page that pulls all the announcements for the various subsite to the main portal page.  I am finding that only me and another individual has full rights are able to see the announcements contents (image, title and short description) via the CQWP, visitors only see the title and the rollup image of the announcement but should see a short description of the announcement. If the visitor clicks the title of the announcement they are able to see the entire contents of the announcement. I have checked the permissions on each list under the list setting and visitors all have read permissions. Any ideas on where to start troubleshooting?   Thanks,

No permission to open a list pages in Sharepoint Designer 2007


We have a sharepoint site with two main lists.

List 1: I could open the pages, make changes BUT cannot create workflows (for the site).
List 2: I could not even open it. I get the message
"You do not have permission to do this operation. Ask your web site administrator to change your permission and try again, or log on with user account that has this permission ...."

I am secondary server administrator and also have 'full control' of the site.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Root element is missing error AFTER changing the List permission


I have an Infopath form that submits the data onto a SharePoint list. Everything works if the user has 'view, insert, edit, delete' access to the list. However, we dont want them to be able to delete and view the item so we gave this user group only 'insert' access. After doing so, they get the following error message:

The following DataObject either cannot be created or cannot be initialized:
The query cannot be run for the following DataObject: NameOfList
InfoPath cannot run the specified query.
The SOAP response indicates that the error occurred on the server:

Server was unable to process request. ==> The root element is missing. 

Anyone know if there's another way to solve this without granting the user group full access to the List?  I'm not an admin, I just normally request what type of permission to set on our sharepoint sites. 

Thanks for the help

How to change a SharePoint list item Approval Status from Silverlight webpart



I'm facing the following problem:

I have an embedeed silverlight xap application inside a custom visual webpart, that access SharePoint data through Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Silverlight classes, and I have to modify some fields from an item from a list that has "Require content approval" enabled. I update the item successfully, but its approval status is set to "Pending" afterwards. 

How can I re-approve the content programatically?

Some additional information:

  • SPList item has a moderation information field, but in Silverlight there is only "ListItem" which does not contain such field.
  • When I try to do "item["_moderationinformation"] = something", I receive a PropertyOrFieldNotInitializedException.
  • I can check for Item.ParentList.EnableModeration, but there is neither a field nor a method related to moderation on the item itself.
A possible solution would be to create and call a web service that approves the items, but I'd rather prefer to avoid hosting and calling a ws to cover this functionality.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Copy List Item in SPD 2010 Workflow Fails if Check Out/Check In Required


I've seen this issue on 3 different Sharepoint 2010 implementations, including upgrades and fresh installations...

The workflow, which works fine in WSS 3.0/MOSS, operates on change of a document.  Workflow reviews a specific column and based on contents of that column, it checks out the document, copies the current item from the current library to another library in the same site and then deletes the item in the current library.

In SharePoint 2010, the following occurs.  Again, this occurs in the upgraded workflow as well as in a brand new workflow created with SPD 2010 on a site that blank / not upgraded.

  • Workflow starts on an item that is verified to not already be checked out.
  • Document is checked out
  • Document IS copied to the other library
  • Workflow fails and is canceled with the following errors:
    The workflow could not copy the item. Make sure the source and destination lists have the same columns and column settings.  (They do.)
    The workflow operation failed because the action requires the document to be checked out. (The item is checked out by workflow - as is evidenced by the fact that the item is still checked out after workflow fails.)
  • RESULT:  the copy operation does work, workflow thinks it doesn't and fails on that step, item is not deleted

Assigning Custom Permission Role to a List Column in MOSS 2007

I have created three custom roles: Role1, Role2, Role3.  I have a user list with permissions column.  This permissions column has three choices in a dropdown list.  I want to associate each value in the dropdown list to a custom role (Role1 or Role2 or Role3).  This way, when I create a new user, I would just have to pick a value in the permissions column.  Oh Yes, I am using MOSS 2007.

Change the Setting After Approval Workflow done in Sharepoint List Item


Hi Team,

Me and My Team are new for Sharepoint and we want to resolved one task.
Scenario: We have approval workflow on Document List. Now, Our Client wants that once that Document is uploaded, workflow gets started for approval process. which we have done.
Now, They wants that once Document get approved, No one can change the document. It means document will be stop for editing, they can open that and review / print / do other action except Editing and Deleting.

Now, does anyone know how can we achieve the same using custom coding in Visual Studio or Sharepoint Designer ?
i guess we should remove the rights from that document permission for this else we have no idea.

But in either case, Please guide us How to do that step by step.
Thanks for your kind Support.

Thanks & Regards, Brijesh Shah
