Group security

Jul 10, 2009 at 6:44 PM

The instructions from the June build of the PKS are a little confusing to me in regards to what groups should have access to what and at what level.  Is there a clear and consice list of what all the groups should have access to? Obviously PKS Administrators should have access to everything but what about PKS Impersonators, PKS Podcaster and PKS Visitors?  I'd like to be certain all groups have the proper permission settings across all lists and libraries before adding users and doing wider testing.  A matrix of the user groups and the lists/librarys would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Eric,

Following are the PKS groups that you need to create with their respectiver permissions:

PKS Administrators : Full Control
PKS Impersonators  : Contribute permission ( Needed for Upload On Behalf of functionality)
PKS Visitors: View Items, View Application pages, Browse User Information and Edit Personal User Information
PKS Podcasters: View Items, View Application pages, Browse User Information and Edit Personal User Information

Obviously you can create your own groups and customize the permissions as per your requirement.

Following are the permissions that need to be given on the document libraries and the lists:

Document Libraries:
1. Pages : Read and limited Access to PKS Visitors and PKS Podcasters

Lists:
1. PKS Podcasts : Contribute permission to PKS Podcasters and PKS Visitors
2. User Information List : Read permission to All authenticated users
3. PKS Configuration Settings: Read permission to All Authenticated users

Hope this helps.
