We have a SharePoint 2010 environment that is quite mature and the permissions are all well established.
I have had a request to restrict access to a Folder within a Document Library. Users with permissions to the folder and documents within must not be allowed to see the site or the Document Library.
So the folder has unique permissions and any user given access to the folder gets Limited Access to the Site and Document Library.
However, when I provide a link to a document in the Folder to a user with Permissions to the Folder they are getting Access Denied.
I have replicated this issue on a Test environment and it works as I expect it to so I am thinking it must be either a Site Setting or a Library Setting.
I have tried the following to try and resolve :-
- Checked for Site Features such as Limited Access Lockdown (which I think is SP2013) or Restrict Limited Access Permissions
- Checked for ViewFormPagesLockDown feature
- No Versioning set on the library
Anywhere else I can check would be greatly appreciated or alternatively if you could point out what I've done wrong, please do.
