Deny permission.

  Asked By: Jesse    Date: Feb 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4220

An OOTB SharePoint site will have 9 standard permissions. If you add the
SharePoint Training Kit, two more will appear on the list of Permission Levels.
So, how does one define custom permissions, and can any of them be a deny
Ok, why? Well, we have a site that is being used by visitors and we want them
to see summary information. That same page is viewed by support people and we
want them to see details, not the summary. Since we have an all-inclusive group
that defines visitors, defining the support people would require something on
the order of all except group Support-People, and SharePoint group definitions
don't support that either. So, denying access to one sub-group (the Support
People) would provide us with a solution. The alternative is just creating a
separate page and that's a drag which we want to avoid.

Custom permission  levels can be added in the site  Admin UI (Site
Settings -> permissions  -> Settings -> Permission Levels) or be added
programmatically via the OM. There is no deny  in standard  site
permissions - the only deny that's available is at the Web Application
level and is assigned in Central Administration. There might be one
other option to do what you want, depending on how sensitive this
information is - Audience Targeting. You can create an audience with a
"not" rule and use audience targeting on a pair of content editor web
parts (one targeted to visitors  group, the other to the support
audience). Audience targeting is not security per se, but if the
content only exists in a content editor then the visitors won't really
have any way to access  it.
