Does Lower / Weaker Security Rule over Higher security or Vice Verse?


A User wants to Edit a list and has the following permissions across two groups: S1 - View Only S2 - Full Access

Which security settings take precedence?

Now let's say he has permissions in multiple groups... and multiple Lists/Document Libraries, etc.

The highest permissions granted to the user (or a group the user is member of) at any given level (Web, List, ListItem etc.) will rule. So, the user will get the highest permission given to him/her
