SharePoint comes with security features for privacy. In your specific case if students are using Document Library to add their work then you can go to its Settings -> Advanced Settings and then set options for Read Access as "Read items that were created by the user".

Easy solution will be to create a Document Library and inside that folder for each student. Each student will have Contribute permission only in his/her Folder and will not have any permission on any other folder. Make your account as Site collection administrator, and give yourself Full Control permission in all of the student folders. You can see this ...

Navigate to the document library with the folders. Tick the little check box beside the folder in question. In the ribbon, there should be an option for Manage Permissions. From there you will have to break the permissions inheritance (there should be a link or option called Edit permissions). Once the inheritance is broken, you can add or remove people as ...

You can login with Site collection administrator or with System account/App pool account to give back the permissions.

I would continue to use metadata tags but use actual SharePoint groups to limit the permissions. Give each department their own document library where the respective group contribute permissions and other departments have read permissions as necessary. Then you can use a content query web part to roll up the documents and not have to worry about ...

Are you using the same group? You must create separate groups for each subsite. Groups are part of the site collection, so the groups will appear in all sites, you will have to grant/remove access as needed.

I wouldn't use metadata to do a workaround on permission when you already have item level permission built in. By default your documents inherit site permission and those with sufficient permission can read, update and delete documents. But if you want specific permission on a document, edit sharing the following way. Select Shared With Click Advanced ...

if you check the error you will see which services account is complaining about it. i am sure it should be search services account. In order to resolve the issue please assign the SPSearchDBAdmin role permissions to that search services account. http://blog.sharepointsite.co.uk/2014_01_01_archive.html

I understand that you have a few documents, and a CSV of users with their associated permissions for those documents. You want to upload them into SharePoint 2013. Since each document has unique permissions, we need to set item-level permissions to each. Write a script to upload the documents to the SPList (there are a couple of ways to do this) Then, ...

Run your browser in elevated mode and the problem is resolved.

You are correct that you cannot publish an app to the store that requests FullControl. However, you can upload any app to the App Catalog in your tenancy. (Also, be aware that Autohosted apps have been discontinued. MSDN has guidance on transitioning to Provider-hosted.)

Go the Page "Info", Click on "Page" tab next to browse, Click on Page Permissions button. On Permissions tab click stop permissions. Now Grant Permission to your 'TestUser' to "Edit". Edit the permissions of all the groups and members to "Read".

This is the default for items that have NEVER been checked in. There happens when someone uploads an item without filling in required metadata (usually through windows explorer) There is a view for administrators inside the library settings area specifically to locate these items.

You are likely adding him to a group. Use the "check permissions" option in the advanced permissions area to see which group he is in. The list of names often does not contain all users if there are many placed in groups.

You can check your site's recycle bin for the missing folder. You can also restore the items from the recycle bin as well.

Well, like @compengTR stated, I don't think it is possible to undo action in Sharepoint, as far as I'm aware. So, as far as I know, you have two options. You can either assign the users back into the group manually (which might take a while), or you can use a script, such as JSOM or C#, to assign users back. I can probably quickly write a script to show ...

I think you can't roll back this action. You should grant permissions again. If you don't know who has which permissions, you can restore a back-up database to your test environment and find permissions. Maybe this link can help you. Good luck..

No. If you are manually creating a site then the parent site permissions will be inherited by default. You will have to manually break inheritance in Site Permission Settings. However, if you are creating a site programmatically then you can use SPWeb.BreakRoleInheritance(true) method to break inheritance.

We are in a similar situation. We recognized that in some case our permissions are unqiue but allways the same :) (unique permissions in some flow was always setting the same 2 AD groups). This is helpful as we can move these items down into a folder that has the unique permissions without having to assign it to each item individually, reducing the amount ...

The problem is that the user doesn't have permissions to view the group membership. I'm attaching my own version of the AddGroup method. Please note the grp.OnlyAllowMembersViewMembership = false which sets the option for other users to check the group membership. Also you can check if a user has permissions to see the membership using the ...

No - the results will be security trimmed and you only see what you would see when you directly access a fileshare.

Not sure why you're getting the access denied error, but you should be using the cross-domain library, SP.RequestExecutor.js, when trying to SharePoint data from within an app. Try calling myFunction with the following: var scriptbase = hostweburl + "/_layouts/15/"; $.getScript(scriptbase + "SP.Runtime.js", function() { $.getScript(scriptbase + ...

The same is possible in Office 365. Just go to your site collection where the app resides that you want to revoke access. Go to Site Settings, and in the User and Persmissions group, follow the link to Site app permissions. From that page you can easely revoke access to any app within your site collection. You can also access the page directly using ...

Probably the issue is related to files that have been uploaded to Sharepoint, but they have never been checked-in. Imagine the following scenario: Someone uses the Explorer View to upload some files The library requires users to check-in/out the documents (Require Check-in / Check-out), so the files are automatically checked-out to the user The user does ...

It is normal, If your draft item security setting is set to Only Users Who can apporve items(and the author of the item). To specify who can view drafts, you must have permission to design a list or library. The following procedure applies only to libraries that track both major and minor versions and lists or libraries that require content approval. If ...
