permissions and inheritance from objects to root Sharepoint 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have a document library with many many folders having broken inheritance from root (unique permissions). Is there any way to have all of these connected with root library again? This is very difficult to go to each folder and re-inherit permissions.

    Can we do this using top document library? 

    We have Sharepoint 2007 and WSS 3.0

    Thanks in advance!


    Please advise how to

  • Hi,

    Do you want to use same permissions applied on top document library? Do you want to inherit permissions from parent? You can change permissions on item level by item drop down menu > manage permissions.

    for all documents / folders go to Doc Lib settings > Permissions for this doc lib and manage permission which will change permission for all content resides under that doc lib
