I am working on a team site collection inside our SharePoint 2013 on-premises. now under the site collection i have created a new team sub site, and i grant this sub-site unique permissions. So for example currently certain users can not view the root site, while they have Contribute on the sub-site's lists and linraries.
But i want to take things deeper regarding permission. where i want to do the following:-
- grant certain user contribute on a specific folder ONLY, under the team sub-site's document library.
- while prevent the user from viewing the root site, the sub-site's lists and the document library folder (other than the one he have contribute on)..
So is this a supported operation inside sharepoint 2013 on-premises? now based on my test ths user was able to view the folder's documents, but if he try to view the folder itself, he will get access denied error (this list has not been shared with you), and since the user can not view the folder, then he will not be able to upload document inside the folder.. so is there any workarounds ?
