I have to hide some lists/Document Libraries / Picture Libraries from the particular user group/members. Eg. I have to hide the Contact Details List from the Editors Group. So how to fix it with OOTB & Custom development for the both the solutions-Farm Solution and Office Online?

    There is no Deny-permission level on SharePoint at site level. At CA it can be used, but a permission setting at site level will not override a permission setting configured at CA. Consider your hierarchy and/or user permission policies (to stop inheriting of permissions to the lists/libraries in question). – moe Oct 10 '16 at 6:43

On each library you would have to break permission inheritance and remove the editor-group from accessing the library. However, if these users are members och the Visitor Group with read permission, they would still be able to access content with read permission.

  • Can we do this with dynamically, instead of going to list/library settings and do it manually, can we do that by default? Eg. If user A have created list/Libraries are hidden to Group-Y. Is it possible? How? – Ram Oct 10 '16 at 9:15
  • @Ram Not out of the box. Question is why you really need it? – Benny Skogberg Oct 10 '16 at 9:41
  • Even if the user have the rights but I don't want to show some lists to particular user group because of different different departments. I have an option for that with the Sub-Sites. But still looking for the root site, either it's manageable or not? – Ram Oct 10 '16 at 9:45
  • @Ram I would rethink the Information Architecture you're using. Either a user have the permission to access a library and edit its items, or the user hasn't. Making changes to the structure of libraries, even if you can, isn't a good strategy and will be hard to maintain in the future. – Benny Skogberg Oct 10 '16 at 10:01
  • Can you please let me know the right approach to do the same? – Ram Oct 11 '16 at 17:58
