Custom Permissions restrict delete causes access denied modifying filename RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a new permission level called Restricted Modify that copied the contribute permission level and then unchecked the Delete Items and Delete Versions permissions to make it so users can view and modify items but not delete them from the site.

    When a user is then trying to modify the name attribute of an file in a document library (Sample.pdf to NewName.pdf), they are getting an Access Denied error.

    1. Is modifying a filename considered a delete action by SharePoint 2007 even though they are modifying it from the Editform.aspx?

    2.  Is there any way around this to allow users to modify filenames but not have the ability to delete items (either documents or list items) from the site?
