Question on Implement Security on SPPS 2003

  Asked By: Amrit    Date: Aug 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 759

How do I enforce security on my SPPS 2003 site. I need a group of users
to access one sub area under an area while others another sub area / doc

e.g. I have Home, News, SubArea 1, Sub Area 2

SubArea 1 contains Doc Lib1 & Doc Lib2
SubArea 2 contains Dob Lib 21 & Doc Lib 22

Users belonging to Grp1 will have access to SubArea 1, Doc Lib 1
Users belonging to Grp2 will have access to SubArea 2, Doc Lib 21
Users belonging to Grp3 will have access to SubArea 1 -> Doc Lib 21 &
SubArea 2 -> Doc Lib 22

The information should not be shared in any way amongst the groups i.e.
the Search too should not return documents to which a particular Grp is
not expected to see.

With Sharepoint Portal Server, security  can only be set and granted to
an area. All container/list inherit the permission from the area.
Therefore in your example, you will need to create sub-sub area to
achieve the security you are describing.

One workaround I have been implementing with many of my clients is to
use a Team Site. In a team site, security can be granted to list/doc lib
independently of the Team Site itself. I which Microsoft will have
enable this feature for areas as well.

If anyone has a workaround for this, please let us know
