Column/Row level permissions

  Asked By: Elvin    Date: Aug 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2605

Is there any way in Sharepoint (GUI or API/Programmically) that we can
enforce certain rules in Sharepoint list at row and column level? Or is
there any way we can introduce our hooks that gets executed before the value
is changed in any particular column of any particular row? (Before updating
or after updating; something similar to SQL Server's Triggers)

Consider an Inventory list; in the list; if an item is sold; its status can
only be changed to "Returned back" or "Sent to workshop for repair" and not
"In stock" or "On Shelf"

Furthermore; certain users can set particular status when item as particular
status; eg only "Shift In-charge" can set "Returned back" when item status
is "Sold".

There really isn't anything OOTB to handle this in the list  UI or Object Model.
Generally, this sort of thing is best handled by using a add-on workflow system
(Captaris, K2.Net, BizTalk, etc), using the list simply as a data source rather
than using the List UI itself.
