Deleting Public/ Personal folders

Hi,

I have the following query:

I would like to delete Public and Personal folders in KMC

i.e.

Home > Documents > 'Personal Documents' folder and

/documents/Public Documents folder.

Should I be able to delete these folders?

What specific roles should an user have to be able to perform these operations?

Could you please help?

Thanks and regards,

MB

    Hi Moitreyee,

    sorry, but there seems to be one basic misunderstanding here: all permissions are somehow cumulative.

    In other words: if the user is granted the permission by some ACL or system principal permission, it won't be revoked by another rule.

    So: If a user is allowed to do something by ACL, then the system principal permission will <b>not</b> overwrite that permission.

    So,

    ad 1) <i>If user/role has a permission which is defined in System Principals but which is not present in the resource ACL, then the System Principal permission overrides the ACL.</i>

    -> Yes, if that resource ACL contains an entry, with a specific ACE. A resource ACL without ACL entry defaults to "Everybody Full Control".

    ad 2) <i>Similarly, if user/role has a permission defined in resouce ACL which is not present in the System Principals, then the ACL permission overrides the System Principal.</i>

    -> No, its no "overwrite", its just that the regular ACL already granted that right and the system principals will not be checked.

    and about the example <i>(Eg: I tried deleting the Public Documents folders as System Admin with default ACL (Everyone: Full control),

    but without the Delete permission in System principals.

    I was able to delete the folder).</i>

    --> That's ok, since "Everyone: Full control" already grants permission to delete, so the system principal's permission is not checked.

    <i>So System Principals do not always override the ACL permission.</i>

    -> See above: it's no "overwrite", its just a logical union - if the permission is granted by resource ACL or by system principal permission, access is granted.

    Best regards,

    Paul

    Hi

    super admin role takes into account all the roles available for portal i.e content admin,user admin as well system admin.Permissions to the folder is the key for deleting or creating by a user .And super admin of a portal has all the permissions.

    hopes this helps u

    don,t forget to give points

    • Hi Robert,

      I understand that:

      1) If user/role has a permission which is defined in System Principals but which is not present in the resource ACL, then the System Principal permission overrides the ACL.

      2) Similarly, if user/role has a permission defined in resouce ACL which is not present in the System Principals, then the ACL permission overrides the System Principal.

      (Eg: I tried deleting the Public Documents folders as System Admin with default ACL (Everyone: Full control),

      but without the Delete permission in System principals.

      I was able to delete the folder).

      So System Principals do not always override the ACL permission.

      Kindly let me know if this is correct

      Thanks and best regards,

      Moitreyee

    Hi Moitreyee,

    You should have super admin role added to the user to be able to delete those folders.
