Vault 2012 permissions

409 Views, 5 Replies

We switch to Vault 2012 recently. Some users complains some problems when renaming and moving and i was trying to reproduce that. So i notice that my users now can remove files and folders. If i remember well before (since Vault 2007) my users should not delete files and folders in anyway (they can move into a special folder that the admin will remove).

 

How can i configure permissions so that users may do most things, but not removing in any way ?

Assign them to 'document editor 1'.

correct, the permission of rename, move sharing same user role with permission 'delete conditional' - Document Editor (Level2). For this case, if you works with Vault Workgroup edtion (or above), Access control list (ACL) of folder security or State  security may help to match the requirement besides basic role based security. For Vault 2012, no more option to configure.

So "standard" Vault server gives me 2(!) sets of permissions combination only. Come on guys, even this is the entry edition, it is server software. Now i can have up to 10GB database (and many many files) and my end-users may delete all with one click ...

If you use 'document editor 1' for the permissions, then the user can't delete files.

You can also use 'folder level security' to limiit the deleting of files, unless you are using the basic Vault version.

 

Folder Level Security you can assign the use as 'read-only', 'full control' or 'no access'.
