Contribute permission issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I dont know what i am missing here

in the permission level creating page i see this

Edit Items  -  Edit items in lists, edit documents in document libraries, and customize Web Part Pages in document libraries.

My understanding is above role will give users the capabilty to edit list and documents check out and check in etc..

but we dont want users to modify the web part that are stacked on a page. is there any way we can stop users from modifying the global view ?

but still we want them to have check in check out option on document.

i dont understand why this level is given because when we enable the edit items they are able to modify the the web parts even on a team sites home page. but the permission says you can only modify web part pages in document library.

Add and Customize Pages  -  Add, change, or delete HTML pages or Web Part Pages, and edit the Web site using a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible editor.

Is it a bug or i am missing something here?

Help!!!! Permission issue with Analysis Services on Windows 2008 R2

Hi I'm with a project using Sql Server 2008 on Windows Server 2008 R2. It seems I can not connect to Analysis Services server with SA acount but only with Windows Authentication (The 'Authentication' option is diabled). And when I connect to Analysis Services with my windows acount , I do not have the permission to either create a database (ERROR:Either '***' user does not have the permission to create a new object, or the object does not exist) or grant server privilege to my windows account (ERROR: Only an administrator can make changes to server properties). Also, I failed to remote connect to Analysis Services on Server with my windows account (But I can remote connect to Database engine). Any idea?  Thanks!

Permission issue - users not seeing correct master page and css


I have started playing with permission and created a whole that I can not climb out of! Any help will be great!!! Here are my issues:

1. (this one started it all) I added an approval workflow to a library with the thought that a doc would not show to the public until it is approved. Ain't happening...what do I have to do for this process to work?

2. In trying to solve the above I restricted nt auth to the visitors group and then made that group read only. Now members of the visitor group only sees the old master page and css. The only way to fix it so far is to add nt auth to the owners group. that won't fly.

issue in granting permission to other users



I created one report using report designer in SSRS 2008, but I am encountering one issue when granting access to other user.

I add New Role Assignment in Report Manager, and checked 'Browser' to make the user access the report. the granted user can open the page: http://mycomputername/reports, and also he can see the data source and reports folder,after open the reports folder, when he tried to open the report, error information shows as following:

An error occurred during client rendering.

An error has occurred during report processing.Cannot create a connection to data source 'DataSource1'.

For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors.               

Can you help me? thanks!

Sharepoint Permission Issue


Hi there,


We have a customize permission level (called 'companyname contribute' ) similar to default 'contribute' permission level.

The only difference between this group and default contribute group is this customise permission level does not have rights to delete items or versions.


Our issue is member of this (customize) group is not able to change the file name that he/she has just uploaded. They can upload document, edit that document  but not able to rename that files/folder they have created.

We would like to fix this issue as it becomes headache for administrator.


Could anyone please help us with this MOSS 2007 permission issue.







Sql Server 2008 Permission Issue



     In sql server 2008,I am creating one table in database.After that when i am trying to change in table,it does not allow me to change any thing.How can I set permission so I can alter or modify anything in database.



some utilities not running on files present in system32 folders, i doubt its a permission issue



We are running FCIV utility on the files of systems32 folders in windows server 2008 R2. Though it runs successfully on many of the files, its giving following error on few of the files like c:\windows\system32\acproxy.DLL:

Following is the Error *********


        Error msg  : The system cannot find the path specified.

        Error code : 3

I suspect its something to do with the changed security model of Windows server 2008 R2. which is not allowing the utility to run on certain files.

One thing to note is that i ran the same utility on the same file saved in d:\acproxy.DLL, and utility could run successfully.

Please help me resolve the issue.

IsapiModule Error 500 Issue


I am about exhausted trying to figure out this error:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

Description: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Error Code: 0x8007007b

Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler

Module: IsapiModule

Requested URL: http://localhost:80/ReportServer

Physical Path: c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\Reporting Services\ReportServer

When I enable Failed Request Tracing Rules and view the log output I am supposing that the actual problem is in the 2nd call where there are 2 backslashes before the actual filename in the specified path:


CALL_ISAPI_EXTENSION DllName="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\\aspnet_isapi.dll"


MVC2 issue - Stuck. Trying to create a cms with nested partials


I am currently trying to display multiple items on a single page. I am not sure as to how to tackle this. What I have is a database table that has all the page data in. I have this run as a PagesController and this works fine. However what I would like to do is, if say the Products page is selected via the menu, I want to pull back not only the Products page html but also get all the products, and even be able to pull them through via category. I was trying to use a partial view, but I can't get it to work. The same would be for other pages, having partial views to display the other content, ie if Gallery is selected, the page html for Gallery shows and it then can push to a partial view that pulls all the gallery images from the gallery db table and so on. 

Maybe I am tackling this the wrong way. I have the pages stored in the db to allow for a CMS system I have setup. Maybe I need to use models for all the other items(Products, Gallery, Videos and such) and use the partial for the page html?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am confused.

System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type 'System.Web.AspNetHostingPerm


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.
