I need to show documents in document library based on a user.

For example, I have one list in which I have some Projects for the user. Based on the Projects he has I need to show the documents in document library based on Project folders.

For example I have folders Abc, xyz, sss. The user has only abc ,sss Projects so I need to show only those folders.

Please help me how to achieve this.

  • And how do you decide that the user has only access to abc, sss projects? Where are the permissions stored? – Arsalan Adam Khatri Nov 10 '14 at 8:06
  • i am inheriting Permissions by group and user access to Projects are stored in list.In document library i have folders with Project Names.so My requirement is to show document library folders which he had access – user3492718 Nov 10 '14 at 8:11
  • I don't think anything OOB can be done here, if each project had a separate web than you could be able to play with web permissions.. but storing in list will require some development efforts – Arsalan Adam Khatri Nov 10 '14 at 8:13
  • Is there any other way to achieve this functionality. – user3492718 Nov 10 '14 at 9:13
  • Can you edit your post and include structure of the list and structure of the document library? – Slaven Semper Nov 10 '14 at 9:55
