KM Permissions based on MetaData

Hello,

I am wondering if there is any way to apply access permissions based on a metadata tag on a document. What I would like to do is see if there is a way to have a metadata property pre-defined which allows for a "level of access". For example, if we create a "classification" property with forced values of 1, 2 and 3, and set it as mandatory for all docs, is there any way to restrict access to the document such that 1 cannot, 2 cannot but 3 can (based on their respective classification)?

I know that the user has no specific "metadata" per say, but can we allow/disallow it VIA a mapping to the group they reside in from the UME?

Kind regards,

Judson

    Hi Judson,

    I think this would require custom development.

    After creating a metadata / property in KM & to make it accessible in the Details -> Properties, the new property need to be added in the all_groups. But again this has no connection with the permissions at UME level.

    Well this is what I can think of randomly:

    1. Create the required metadata and add them in the appropriate groups.

    2. Write a code which will extract the permissions at group level and then play around with switching the properties on/off.

    Hope this helps.

    All the best!

    Warm Regards,

    Ritu

    Hi Ritu,

    Of the top of your head, this is a good start. I am looking for a proof-of-concept for a customer who requires this type of classification to restrict access to docs..

    This is a good start.

    Thanks very much,

    Judson
