MOSS 2007 Permission Levels

When you create a new library for your documents or forms, you need to set permission levels for the users and groups. Permissions bring security to both the library and the users. Permission levels are based upon the access rights of each level. Full control is the least restricted and read is the most restricted permission level.

Here is the list of Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services for MOSS 2007 permission levels with a brief description of each:

Full Control
Has Full Control. This is the least restrictive permission level with full control over the MOSS installation and post configuration tasks.

Design
Can view, add, update, delete, approve, and customize. You can create resource libraries as well as lists and edit pages on the site.

Contribute
Can view, add, update, and delete. You can add, delete and edit previously created list items and document libraries.

Read
Can view and read. This is the most restrictive permission level and allows only to read pages on the site including the resource libraries.

Limited Access is a permission level that is automatically assigned to a user or a group when you assign them a role at a lower level but to access that lower level they require to access an object at a level higher than they have permissions to.

    How can I manage the permissions levels of Site Owners? I’ve created a custome permission level for site owners. If a site owner has the ability to “Manage Permissions” they have the ability to add users directly to the site with ‘Full Control’. How can I prevent Site Owners from adding users with a higher level of permission than they have?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I have created a site on MOSS 2007. I want to give contribute permission only on a document library, not on the whole site, even member can not see other items. Is that possible? Please reply me as soon as possible.

    Thanks

      yes you can do that.
      1-create a group on a site level (lets say DocContributors) and finish the group creation steps without selecting any permission level for that group.
      2- add all the users who want to have contribute acces to the document library to that group (DocContributors)
      3-on the document library level, break the permission inheritance
      4- add the group (DocContributors) to the permission and select teh permission level at this point (i.e. contribute)

      thats all
      🙂

    I am working with some site administrators that have deleted one too many sites. I want them to give them the ability to create, but not to destroy.

    What is the highest level permissions that I can give to my site administrators that will allow them to do all functions except for deleting sites?

    I’m looking to create a group that can upload files, but cannot modify any files that have been uploaded. Lise the “Contribute” permissions level, but without the updating or deleting.

    Two questions:
    What if my user has only ‘Full Control’ permissions in a List, what the user can/cannot do?
    It is possible to a user with ‘Full Control’ only in the List, create a new Content Type in the List?

    He will be able to do EVERYTHING……..create anything, delete anything….even the list.
