Security overrides

  Asked By: Eugene    Date: Dec 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 791

I want to know if anyone has a better way to administer security on the
portal (either by tool, code or otherwise).

Currently we grant a set of users author access on a project folder.
This ripples down to all the folders below which is fine and dandy. Now
comes along someone else who wants extra security put on a sub-folder.
Fine, we override the parent folder and add that user (because we don't
want to grant access for all the other folders at the upper level). Now
a new person comes along and needs access to everything from the top
folder down. Without replacing the security on the subfolders (which
blow away the changes we made in step 2) the new person now does not
have access to any folder where security was overridden.

Does anyone have some best practices, ideas, code, or a tool to help me
make security management manageable?
