Question:

How can I deny a user group any right to Files, requirements, tasks and topics?


Answer:

In this case, the user is unable to access files, however can still work with requirements, tasks and topics. After reviewing the access rights report, the users were still able to work with requirements, tasks and topics due to the order in which the deny access right was applied.

Deny records must precede grant records. The reason is that if the application finds a grant record that allows a user to perform an operation before it finds a deny record for the user, it stops looking at records for that node at that level. Thus, it allows the user to perform the operation. Therefore to resolve this issue, recheck the order of grant and deny access rights.
