In a Document/Form Library with versioning enabled (SP 2010), it is possible to delete all versions of a particular document/form simply by going to the "Version History" dialog box. This ability obviously could be unwelcome depending on business requirements for retaining sensitive data. How can I restrict the two link buttons to not be available to certain groups using SharePoint permissions or programmatically? Or just hide them in any way?

You can acheive this functionality by removing "DeleteVersions" permission from the Permission Level of a Group enter image description here

  • Can you please specify where these permissions can be found? Library settings? – Ryan Gates Apr 1 '15 at 16:19
