Mutually-Inclusive Role Assignment

I don't know if anyone has had this requirement before or if there is even a way to do it, but I thought I would throw it out there.

What I am looking for is a way to assign 'mutually inclusive' role/security assignments within KM.

Here is the scenario.

- You have 2 roles: RoleA and RoleB

- I want to require that users be in BOTH RoleA and RoleB to get access to a KM folder.

- If a users is only in RoleA or only in RoleB they should not see the content.

Any ideas?

    HI

    i think u need to use of Group concept here.

    create two groups of users

    Group A --- assign folder permission where user need to navigate

    Group B --- assign folder permission where user need to navigate

    If suppose a user ( say a manager ) who need to navigate to both the areas of group A and Group B then assign these users to bith the group.

    now create a KM navigation iview and assign this iview to role and assign this role to both the group.

    so when end user navigates to km folders using this iview he can only see folder where he has permission.

    This is my approach and there could be even other way to do it .

    Regards,

    Vijay.

    ps: u need to remove read permission of everyone group from this KM folder if it was previously assigned.

    • I appreciate your diligence with this, but I still don't think we are on the same page.

      Here is the scenario again..

      UserA is in GroupA

      UserB is in GroupB

      UserA-B is in BOTH GroupA and GroupB

      I want to have a folder where only UserAB can see the content.

      UserA would not see the content

      UserB would not see the content

      UserA-B would see the content.

      If you have any more suggestions please contact me directly
