Library security

  Asked By: Parvesh    Date: Jun 11    Category: MOSS    Views: 834

We have created a InfoPath form that is being used by managers for
business continuity plans. There are also others that need to have
access to the form library to fill out the forms, but not necessarily
have access to the site that the forms library sit on. We have found
that we have to give the person site "Visitor" access to the site in
order for them to get to the library to fill out the InfoPath form and
we don't want this. It was my understanding that we can give item
level security with MOSS 2007, but have found this is not necessarily
true. Is there a work around for this, or could we possibly be doing
something wrong?

Giving a user access  rights to a list/library will automatically give  them
limited access rights to the site  containing the list/library. This is just
enough rights to traverse the site to get to the list/library without
actually having rights to anything else in the site. This is automatically
assigned. You don't need to give the user any rights at the site level,
just the library  level.

You can give item level security, but in an infopath  library you need access
to both the XML result file and the XSN form  template. In a regular
document library you only need access to the template to create a new file,
but not to read or edit the file. That isn't true for infopath.
