Creating/Copying permission levels in moss publishing sites

  • Creating/Copying permission levels in moss publishing sites Rob

    Does anyone know what permission levels are required to allow a user to create content but not approve it?

    I’ve just spent the afternoon trying this and am more confused than when I started. For instance…

    If I add a user into the Designer site permission group I can create pages – excellent, just as I would expect.

    If I create a new site permissions level - let’s call it ‘customer-designer’ - by copying the Designer site permission level and then assign this ‘customer-designer’ level to a new site permission group. I then add my user into the new group and… I cannot create pages, even though the new group is based on permissions that have been directly copied from a permission set that does allow page creation

    Does this make any sense? Can anyone help me to understand it?


    Update 1
    The issue seems to lie somewhere when the new group is created. For example if I create a new group called ‘customer-designers’ and assign it the Design permission level I still cannot create a page in the pages library.

    Could someone try this for me – to see if it’s a problem on my machine or some weird behavior from Sharepoint?

  • I would go into the permission levels and validate what is selected for your "Custom-Designer" level.

    You specifically want to make sure that "Add and Customize Pages" is included and "Approve Items" it not included.

    Also, since you do not want them approving items, you may need to define an approver group unless it is something the Site Owners are responsible for doing.

  • Ensure that the group-permissionlevel assignment is applied to the rootweb. Also ensure the childwebs on which you are testing do not have unique permissions.

My customer could create a new site for each of her customers, which would take care of almost everything, except that when she creates the new site, she'll need... be overridden automatically (unless I can do it through SPD?). And my final option is to create a doc library for each customer. The issue here is when a customer logs in, how can I display a web part for only the doc lib they have access to, and not the other customer's webparts? If I put them all on the home page, the user will get a message stating they don't have permissions to view the data

In this case, the creator needs to be part of the site collection owners group for the workflow to complete successfully. This poses a permission issue since I am setting item level permission and granting Read permission to the creator once the form... the user who is part of site collection owner to trigger the work or any other work around to resolve this permission issue?

  • I've changed the master page on a publish site collection. When I browsed back to the start site to check the new master page the browser just returned a 404 error, telling me that the page could not be found. But when I open the site collection with the SharePoint Designer very thing seems to be ok and in its place. All pages are as expected in the page library. Within the Designer I could even open the pages for editing. So does anyone has an idea why the browser cannot find and open the pages?
