Here is the situation. We have a requirement where my customer wants to create document sets, however, document set/document level permissions are required.
Setup: We created a new permission level called "Create Only". We then give the user Read and Create only permissions. This allows the user to theoratically create the item. We then run a Workflow on create that Replaces the permissions so that you are only allowed to view the ones you created along with other securtity groups based on their choices in the metadata fields.
This setup works PERFECTLY when using a List or Form Library.
However, for the life of me I cannot get it to work for Document Sets. If I have the same setup, I get an Access Denied message. However, it still creates the document set.
What is weird, I've been playing around with custom permission levels and it seems as though the user has to have EDIT permissions at a minimum in order to create the document set. This will not work for me since I dynamically assign permissions to each document set based on what they select.
As a side note, the only tool I have at my disposal is SharePoint Designer 2010.
Does anyone know if there is an actual requirement to have EDIT permissions when creating a Document Set? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
