Accessed denied when attempting to permission folder using the Object Model API

  • Accessed denied when attempting to permission folder using the Object Model API Sean

    I'm attempting to permission a folder using the Object Model API that is created by an ASP.NET page wrapped into a feature. I am able to create and permission the folder for users that are in the appropriate SharePoint role however, I need to permission the folders that are also in more restrictive roles. The folders are created with no problem but I need to break the inheritance and permission the folder.

    I attempted to wrap the folder creation/permission code in

    SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate() { ... });

    I also tried using

    web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true; 


    web.Site.WebApplication.FormDigestSettings.Enabled = false;
    web.Site.WebApplication.FormDigestSettings.Enabled = true;

    The folder is always created however it does not permission properly. Any feedback/direction would be appreciated. Thanks.

  • Have you tried impersonating a user with the necessary rights:

  • Did you get a new instance of SPWeb inside the RunWithElevatedPrivileges delegate? If not, it will use the same credentials as the original request.

  • I ended up getting it to work with a combination of Koen Vosters answer and this link.

    After impersonating the user I had to use:

    web.AllowUnsafeUpdats = true;
    web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
    while (list.RoleAssignments.Count > 0)
    //Add necessary permissions

  • I'm trying to create folders in a set of custom lists I've created. However, when I try to do this, the New Folder button in the Ribbon is disabled. I read up on the matter; and this lead me to look to enable folder creation in List Settings -> Advance Settings. However, there doesn't seem to be an option to enable folder creation on the page. It shouldn't be a permission related issue; as I created the lists; and I'm also an admin on the farm. I could use a document library; but we will not be uploading documents to the list; so this is more then I need. What are my options, or what am I

  • I have been developing on SP 2010 for a while now. Mostly I have been working with the Client Object Model. Though I am at a point where I need to read out the UserProfiles from inside SharePoint. I see no other way to do this than to make a custom WCFService and deploy it to SharePoint. So that is what I did. I made an "Empty SharePoint Project" and added the mapped "ISAPI" folder.

  • Problem: Creating a site column using the SharePoint API (Object Model) with incorrect case in the URL for the SPSite or SPWeb object will cause the new column to throw an exception if an attempt... and SPWeb.Url properties seem to return back whatever case they are instantiated with. In other words, the site collection is provisioned using the following URL: http://server/Path/Site Then, if I create a new Site Column using the SharePoint object model and happen to use http://server/path/site when instantiating the SPSite and SPWeb objects, the site column will be made available but when

Out structure is as follows: site - http://localhost/my_site list - Pages Folder - News ItemB - Article ItemA - Contents The site is easy enough to connect to, with that I can get the list, Folder and ItemA's and output them so I can see what lives there. What I would like is to be able to view all the ItemB's (and there may be lots of them) under each Folder, there are about 10 Folders in the List with each Folder containing lots
