Permissions for a sharepoint task list

  Asked By: Faith    Date: Jan 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1792

I have added a user with just read permsissons to a could of task
list and document libraries, but when that users goes to those list he
has full control. Any ideas what may be going on. He is even seeing the
site actions drop down menu on the left side. I thought read only means
that you only will see the list you will not even have the option to
select the new button or be able to edit an item.

I would look at the user  being part of a security group (if using AD) or
nested within another sharepoint  group with rights that supercede those
you are assigning. (sorry this sounds so basic, but I've run into it
before in our domain).

The inability to view users permissions  throughout sites and site
collections is a huge shortfall in MOSS, hence the reason for third part
security management tools.

Since permissions  in SharePoint are additive I would suspect that the user  in
question is a member of a group that is given broader permissions to this site
in SharePoint. Permissions from that group membership would dictate what they
could see on the site.

He is not part of any other group and I am not using AD groups at the
moment. i just added  him in. Would it make a difference if he is
accessing the site from the server it's self and not a url on his
local machine.

If he is accessing the site from the server then he is probably logged in to
windows as a member of the local server administrator's group. This group gets
some default rights to SharePoint in order to support the access of the app pool
identity account to the SharePoint system. So yes it could make a difference if
he is logged in locally on the server.

Check to see if this user  is also "Site Collection administrator"
