I have a requirement for a set of users on the site to have permission level.
When these users open the document library, they should see only metadata columns and title without the hyperlink or ECB menu so that they cannot open any documents (they are just browsers of the site).
There are other groups (like Readers or Contributors) who would see the library view normally (with the ECB menu and other columns and can click on the Name column to open the document).
I know that there is no such permission level. What are the alternatives?
I am thinking of using jQuery to strip off the ECB menu and just show the name for this set of users based on a flag I have set from code (using some hidden control).
Can you guys point me to some useful scripts or other alternatives for this problem.
Happy to provide more info, if needed.
