SharePoint Permission management by Roles

  Asked By: Sanchay    Date: Jan 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 986

Following up on the ideas of other questions of this sort.

SharePoint controls permissions by group or individual permissions

I have been asked why we can not control it by Role, instead.

I am in the role XYZ today, I have a set of permissions, because I am
in a group or it has been assigned individually. I change jobs,
therefore my role has changed. I should lose permissions to certain
group/individual sites (Contributor to Reader) and I should gain
permissions in other areas (Reader to Full control).

SharePoint makes each site owner go in and changed those things
manually, when they have time and if they remember.

Personnel, here, changes my job (with its roles) from XYZ to my new
job Janitor. This information is passed to the Active Directory, and
is therefore available to SharePoint.

Anyone doing this out there?

According to what you said, it seems that you want to find some way
to do with the column permission  which will change  related permission
along with the change of certain role, eg. group  or department.

In many occasions, the user needs to set  column permission just like
you referred. Now, there is a sharepoint  add-on which may be helpful
to you. It is called SharePoint Permission Boost. With its help, the
user can:
Firstly, assign permissions  to all items separated from list
permission settings
Secondly, let ITEM-RELATED users or groups have permissions to each
Thirdly, assign read or edit permissions to columns

And you can find more information  on

i think group  in sharepoint  is similar to role  you're talking about.
just different name for some permissions. when u're changed  from
group to group in SharePoint that info can't be passed back to the
AD except you mean group in AD.
