File-level security

  Asked By: Martin    Date: May 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1648

This is a major need for us! This has been
our only problem that is holding us back from migrating to V2. The
ability to modify the security permissions on files, and sub-folders
is a major issue. We use SharePoint as the document management
system for our company Proposal Center. Some proposals can have
many sub-contractors that are working with us to develop the
documents necessary for the proposal. Each company involved in the
proposal needs areas where only they can work, along with areas
where other companies can view completed documents. Within each
company there are usually certain employees that need access to
sensitive data (i.e. payroll). Migrating this hierarchy into V2 has
become a serious headache.

Extending the granularity of security/authorization to every SPS object is a good thing. Finish building the document library and allow file/directory security. The disparity between what can be individually controlled and what cannot is frustrating to an information management designer. Consistent access control on all WSS/SPS "objects".

We would like to see this as we plan on publishing documents, but don't want to let the user see the documents if there not authorized to look at them if they were in a file share. Would want that same type of capability on the sharepoint site

This would be very useful in both WSS and SPS. One scenario is where
a WSS site is used by a team to develop a solution or proposal, or
manage a project. After the work reaches some point of completion,
it is desirable to share that information outside the team. It would
be helpful to be able to be able to widen the permissions for single
documents instead of opening up the entire library or moving/copying
the document(s) to another location with wider access.
