I have various folders under Document Library with Contribute rights to different group.

I use content organizer rules to route the document to appropriate folder by checking a metadata column (For ex If Department = HR, the document should go to Documents\HR Folder

All the Contributor groups have Contribute permission in DropOff Library.

The issue is, If someone from (Ex) "IT" dept enters meta data column values as "HR, It still uploads the document to HR Folder eventhough the IT user doesn't have Contributer permission to HR Folder.

Could someone help me how to restrict this?

I thought the document should route to DropOff library either the user tries to upload / Add a document to a folder where they dont have appropriate permission.
