Webpart permissions

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have created a visual webpart which displays some labels and some lists. I have imported this webpart inside an empty page of a SP site. 

All works fine: i can see everything logged in with my account, which belongs to the "[Site collection name] Owners" group. But if i log in as another user (for example someone belonging to the "[Site collection name] Members" group, i cannot acces the page with my webpart (Error: Access denied - you are currently signed in as: XXX) 

Is this normal? Where can i set the permissions of my webpart?

Reading WebPart Permissions

Hi Folks,             we have bunch of User Groups in our application and also have many WebParts.All the webparts got deployed under the webpart gallery.  we need to display each Webparts associated to which UserGroup(which user group have the permission to use this web parts) and also we need to alter the permission,basically we can remove the association of webpart from particular group so  members under those usergroup can use the corresponding webparts...   Your thoughts????

Security in .NET: The Security Infrastructure of the CLR Provides Evidence, Policy, Permissions, and


The common language runtime of the .NET Framework has its own secure execution model that isn't bound by the limitations of the operating system it's running on. In addition, unlike the old principal-based security, the CLR enforces security policy based on where code is coming from rather than who the user is. This model, called code access security, makes sense in today's environment because so much code is installed over the Internet and even a trusted user doesn't know when that code is safe.In this article, Don Box explains how code access security works in the CLR. He discusses the kinds of evidence required by policy, how permissions are granted, and how policy is enforced by the runtime.

                goButton.ID = "butGo";
                goButton.Text = "Go";
                goButton.Command += new CommandEventHandler(goButton_Command);

Error in / Application after adding employee search in webpart


Hello everyone,

I am working on sharepoint 2007 and I was editing the webpart of the software and after adding the predefined employee search table, the server has crashed while trying to access the server remotely with the following error message:

Error in / Application

However, while trying to login locally I have no problem and can easily login.

What will be the course of action in fixing this error.

Also the site is complaining of an invalid certificate even after adding an exception.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Chris Stanko

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.



MOSS 07 Installation Quirks - SSRS Connectivity & SSP Permissions

I'm new to MOSS 07 and am currently learning it.  I've done clean installs and post-install configuration a few times now and I've noticed 2 quirks associated with a fresh install.  I'm not sure what is going on or the best way to "fix" them.

1 - I install SQL 05 with SSRS prior to installing MOSS and I always check to make sure that SSRS is configured and I can connect to it in the SQL Management Studio.  Once the Default port 80 Web App is provisioned, however, I can no longer connect to SSRS via the SQL MS.  I understand that this is related to the fact that the default Web App that hosts the SSRS sites is the Default 80 Web Site and that this port is taken over by the SharePoint 80 portal.  My question is, how to handle this.  I understand that I can configure SSRS to run via SP Integration.  However, when I install SSRS 05 initially and prior to installing/configuring MOSS, should SSRS be installed under a separate Web App and Port than the Default?  Does SP Integration restore the ability to connect to SSRS via the SQL Mang. Studio?

2 - In an attempt to get used to a "production" way of doing things, I create Domain Service accounts for both installing MOSS and running the services.  My problem is with the results of using an installation account.  I call it "spinsta

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.


MOSS 2007 - "next 100" link missing from permissions pages


We're running two MOSS 2007 environments that are (should be!) identical for Development and Validation.  We don't have Production set up yet to compare...

In DEV, when you go to the Site Settings > View All Site Settings > People and Groups > Groups, you see a "1 - 100 >" link at the top right to page to the next 100 groups.  In VAL, we do not see that link even though we have more than 100 Groups (the list ends on the first page with the letter "l").

Everything we have looked at between the two systems looks identical, has anyone seen something similar and has a fix?  At this point we're waiting until we get the PRD environment set up to compare because we're stumped.  Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
