Subsites with inherited permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    there is  thousands of subsites with inherited permissions (read access) for thousands of users.

    Question: how can be assigned write permissions individually for each subsite?

    Thanks a lot,

    Michel

  • Hello,

    >Unfortunatelly have have only a site at an ASP

    What do you mean by ASP?

    If you have provided read access to all users then you can modify the read permission and add edit permission as well so wherever user is having read permission with in site collection (including all subsites), they will also get write permission.

    Login with admin account in sharepoint site and Go to site action-->site permission-->click permission level from ribbon-->click on read permission-->select "edit item" checkbox and click ok.

    Now you will see all the read users can also edit the item.

    Correct me if i am wrong

  • Hi,

    I understand that you want to allow users upload or create items in a certain sub site.

    You need to notice 2 points:

    1.  You can only grant permission to people or groups, instead of a sub sites.
    2.  A "write" level would need some more detailed permissions. You can create a new permission level with add, edit item permissions or use an existing level.

    So I suggest you set the permission like:

    1. Visit the sub site you want to modify>Site actions>Site Permissions>Stop inheriting permissions
    2. Create a group and grant it with “Contribute” permission, this will allow users in this group view, add, update and delete list items or documents.

    Thanks,

    Kenon Yin

  • ASP = Application Service Provider -> we share our SharePoint Server with other companies.  What you suggested will not work: we cannot change anything at user, who are inhereted. But I understood: there is no way to mix inhereted permissions with local permissions.
