Best Practices question for everyone: What is the best way to manage different permission levels within the same content warehouse?
I work for a client who has two distinct brands. I am working on an initiative to reduce their SharePoint farm size and increase collaboration by merging their two SharePoints into one Site Collection. There are three types of documents:
- Brand A Confidential Content
- Brand B Confidential Content
- Shared Content
Ideally, a MetaData based permissions system would allow me to simply limit document exposure based on assigned MetaData (Brand, or Confidentiality Level). But I am not familiar with a native functionality like this and the client is concerned with LT support/stability for an items based permissions system like what is discussed here: Implementing permissions based on metadata
So plan as of today is:
- Create a single shared Site Collection with 3 content repositories (library)
- Break permissions at the library level and then use a query to pull together the content from the libraries the user has access to onto one page
- Am I missing something with regards to MetaData based Permissions?
- Is there a way to have one content repository and then limit the view / access to confidential content based on user permissions (must be secure).
- Or is the above plan the best course of action?
All suggestions are appreciated!
