Interpreting the Check Effective Rights Category Permission - Project Grid RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am seeking clarification - I was advised that a user could not access projects so I checked their Effective Rights and noticed a RED cross against the Project Heading at the top of the list of rights for the Category Permission - Project when I selected any project in the drop down list.

    I assumed that a RED Cross at the very top indicated an Overall Block on those permissions, however using Delegation as the afflicted user I found that I could do things that they had reported they were unable to do.

    There was one permission that had been removed - PWA Permissions "Delete Project" which I reinstated and this resulted in there being a Grey Cross at the Project heading for the list. Reinstating this did not appear to enhance the users permissions and reinstating it did not appear to diminish them. The only evident difference being the RED cross against the Project Heading at the top of the list of rights for the Category Permission - Project when any project was selected.

    Looking at permissions when a person belongs to more than one security group and there is an allowed permission for one group and a not allowed permission for the other group the permission level itself tends to show a grey cross in such circumstances so in effect green ticks are negated by red crosses at the group level when viewing the permission level that they are listed beneath.

    Am I right to assume that this RED cross simply indicates that at some point there is a permission that is denied?

  • I have investigated a bit further and from what I can deduce if there is a Red Cross at the Project level in the Category Permission - Project list it would appear that it is simply indicating that there is a Deny or Unavailable permission at some point in the list. Can anyone confirm this?
