Are we able to prevent users from Managing Folders in Sharepoint?

Is it possible to prevent a user from Managing/Finalizing a folder in Sharepoint? Is this something that can be configured via RMO?

Re: Are we able to prevent users from Managing Folders in Sharepoint?

Yep you should be able to do it as long as you are in RM8. The SP integration user guide is pretty helpful under section 11.1.1

 

Here is the overview, I've attached the whole doco for you if needed.

 

Information security in SharePoint

SharePoint allows granting permissions for individual users or groups of users to sites, lists, and individual items.

SharePoint includes granular permissions that can be used to determine what a user can and cannot do with content. These permissions can include the ability to create, view, edit and delete content.

Permissions themselves are not directly assigned. Instead, "Permission Levels" are created, which group together one or more individual "permissions".

For example, permission levels provided by SharePoint OOB include

 Full Control - Has full control.

 Design - Can view, add, update, delete, approve, and customize.

 Contribute - Can view, add, update, and delete list items and documents.

 Read - Can view pages and list items and download documents.

 View Only - Can view pages, list items, and documents. Document types with server-side file handlers can be viewed in the browser but not downloaded.

In order to specify the permissions a user has to content (e.g. site, list or list item), users are assigned permission levels for that content.

Consider the following permission level, Permission Level 1 or PL1.

Re: Are we able to prevent users from Managing Folders in Sharepoint?

It seems like my requirement is this. I don't want to modify what permissions a user has in sharepoint, I just want to control what they can manage via the HPRM add-in.

 

For example, lets assume that all the sharepoint users has Full Control. I only want them to have the ability to manage documents, not folders or list.

 

Is there a way I can prevent this via some settings in HPRM?
