R/W, R, R/O permissions on custom fields in Project Detail Pages RRS feed

  • Question

  • In PWA's Server Setting under Workflow stages you have the ability to decide which custom fields will have required, read only or read write within a particular stage.

    Do these permissions apply globally to all users? Or is there a way to give certain groups (E.g., project managers) r/w access to particular custom fields while excluding others?

  • Hi,

    The required/RO/RW properties under custom field configuration is applicable to all users.

    One of our moderator wrote an excellent article about implementing security in PDP based on users' groups. This requires custom development.


    Hope this helps,

  • Thank you very much, that makes perfect sense!

    The article is exactly what I was looking for to understand how this concept was even possible.

    Thanks again!

  • Hi,

    Another option would be to use audience targeting (it is not a security feature). A webpart can have a number of user groups as the target audience meaning the webpart will be visible only for the members of the group(s).
