Site permissions/target audiences

  Asked By: Vikat    Date: Mar 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2637

We have a project site that currently is only accessible to project
members. My boss has decided that he would like all company employees
to be able to access two parts of the project site. One is a photo
library and the other is a content editor webpart that has a project
description entered. The default page of the site includes the photo
libary but also web parts in which only project team members have

I tried adding Read permissions for company employees to only the photo
library and then using Target Audiences to filter out the web parts for
company employees that were only accessible to project team members;
however when I tested this as a company employee I received an access
denied message.

What's the best way to accomplish allowing company employees to go to
the site and only seeing the photo libary webpart and the content
editor webpart on the default page but deny access to them for any
other webpart/list/library?

If you're not going to give them access  to the part of the site  where the
page is located, you'll need to either (a) keep the viewable page  outside
that site, or (b) explicitly grant Read permissions  on that particular page.

How do I explicitly grant permissions  on the particular page? Through

Go to the Pages library and locate the desired page. Then open the Editing
dropdown for that page  and select Manage Permissions. This will require
that you break permission inheritance for this particular item.

The default  page is not located in the pages library. Are you saying
that I should create a new page  for the company  employees?

Assuming that this isn't a publishing site(and therefore no pages library),
create a custom web  part page  and store it in a document library on the site.
Add only the web parts  that you want regular employees to see and then give them
access to that page, but not the default  page.

If the page  is stored in a document library you can give unique permissions  to
the page through the manage permissions menu on the Editor Control Block drop
down menu of the file in the document library. I don't think you can restrict
permissions on the default  page stored in the root of a non-publishing site.
