Content Types

  Asked By: Sondra    Date: Feb 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 940

Is it possible to assign permissions to content types?

example: the "marketing_admin" group can edit all marketing lists
and "marketing_b" group can edit only specific marketing lists?

Ideally I want to have 1 marketing page with 5 different owners. But
each owner cannot overwrite the other's section, only their own. Can
content types accomplish this? how about web zones?

You can not set permissions  on a content  type and have it apply to records
of that type. You could create an event handler that would set security
permissions on the item when a new item is inserted into a list based on
what content type the item is.

But that was a really good question. We need something Exactly like that
and I was getting ready to ask that question today.

I have a MOSS 2007 test portal that has a Records Center in a separate
web application. I am trying to get the content  types that I create
under the portal to show up in the Records Center (second web
application). Can there be a connection between the two web  applications
so that they can share information. I have no problem sending to this
document center for other areas of the portal.

Content types  are defined within the bounds of a Site Collection and are
not easily transportable. If the original content  Type was defined as a
Feature rather than through the UI you could simply activate the feature
on the Records Center and you would have the Content Type in both
places. But I suspect you built your content type the way most people
do using the user interface. If you build a duplicate of the content
type in the Records center (same field names and types, etc.) although
this will be a different content type (different GUID) the webservice
used to add files to the Records Center should transfer all the metadata
between similarly named fields. So although you will need to create the
content type twice, the data should come through when you insert or
update a file in the Records Center.
