What is the best practice to manage permission for confidential documents

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


My company have 10 types of claim forms: travel claim, business trip claim, etc

I got job to create e-form from sharepoint using infopath but the thing is how to prevent someone else to not view our claim form since it's confidential.

Im thinking to create folder like this way:

1. Claim

1.1. Travel Claim

      all staff will submit their form over here.

1.2. Business Trip Claim

      all staff will submit their form over here.

1.3. etc


a. How to prevent other people to see our own claim form

b. How to restrict only the creator, supervisor and HR can see & approve their form

Is this something that need to do with Information Right System?

How to use metadata for permission to access Documents?

I have document library with 100-200 documents. Not all users are allowed to open all documents. So far I know that user permission can be defined by a document or library level. And permision are granted for user or groups. I wonder if it possible define permissions by metadata level. For example "Personnel department security group" have access to the documents with metadata personnel.    Kenny_I

Documents Permission



First of all I would like to tell you that I solved the issue I had with the event handler - I didn't actually solved it but I add the event handler manually and it is ok for me.

Now I have a question about permissions to files and document library.

I have a document center which I want everybody to have access to read it (which is what I created).

I have a few stores and when I upload a file most of the time I will upload it for specific stores only.

That means that I will need to set the permissions manually for each file which is ok.
My question is about the default of the permissions, is there a way to set the default permissions for the files I am now uploading different from the permissions of the parent(document center).

The reason I need it is because I would like that each time they upload a file they will need to choose which stores can see it, and not that all the stores can see this file automatically (that is the default right now).

Thank you.

Manage Alerts Permission Not Available.


Hey everyone!

For some reason, even though alerts are enabled for my web application, the Create Alerts (list permission) and Manage Alerts (site permission) are not listed when attempting to edit a permission level. Has anyone experienced this issue before? When I say alerts are enabled, it is enabled through Central Admin Web Application general settings. I have even attempted to re-enalbed it through the stsadm set property command. Also, there is another web application under a different SSP on the same server farm that has these options available.

Is there another option I need to select for the alerts specifically on that web application to get these permissions to show up?

Whats the best way to manage internal and external documents?


So I want to create two instances of SharePoint 2010 and a marketing microsite. From the Intranet, is it possible to mark some documents as internal vs external in addition to the taxonomy? How would this work securely? Would the documents that are external be published out somewhere?

My use case: I'd like to create a folder called Product 1 for example. Some of the documents I upload to that folder are internal only and some will be customer facing. Of course customer facing documents can be accessed by employees as well.  So from my microite and customer facing SharePoint instance I'd like to query all public(customer facing) documents, but I want to make sure inadvertently internal documents cannot be accessed. 

Is this common? It seems like it should be, so you don't have to keep duplicates of documents or have them in two different places.

What is the best setup for this?

Web Service for uploading documents into SharePoint

WS UploadService is a web service written for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and is meant for uploading documents into SharePoint. I have just uploaded the zip file to GotDotNet.com so it will take some time before the zip file appears in the list of downloads. For the time being, you can download the zip file from the following location

Good Day all,

Having an issue with an outside user accessing my IIS7 box. I do not have this problem when running the website from my host machine. I found this post: Http://forums.asp.net/t/1371394.aspx. I assure you that this is not a solution because I am not storing any of my files on a network share. 

What do you think my approach should be. 

I already have read rights to IIS user to my BIN folder. 

Thanks for the help.
