Preventing non-Full Control people from changing permissions

  Asked By: Fallon    Date: May 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1089

I wish to grant Manage Permissions permission to all members of my site
so they can secure content. However, I do not want them to go and
change their own permissions to something more privileged.

My thought was I would protect editrole.aspx from being opened by
people without Full Control roles. That way they could still secure
their lists, documents, etc. and they could not change themselves from
Contributor to have Full Control.

I am looking for the best method to go about this and have one idea
that I would like feedback on (and suggestions for implementation).

My plan is crumbling in hurry... I now realize that with Manage
Permission a person can change  the Group Settings to new permissions
and create new groups with Full Control.

Now I'm up to three forms that would require modification. Seems to
me that others would have this requirement. Has anyone else been down
this path?
