Problem with granted rigths to a folder


I'm configuring a BOEXI R.3.1 Server and I have a problem with the granted rigths and access levels to a folder. First of all Iu2019ve created two access levels: Edition and Read.

These access levels are assigned by using Cmc->Aplication to Edition_Group and Read_Group respectively.

There is a folder estructure which consists of two branches. Left branch is for Edition_Group and rigth branch for Read_Group. First, I 've assigned Edition access level for Edition_Group at root folder and I've assigned Read access level for Read_Group at root folder. Secondly, I've not allowed Read_Group access to left branch. So Edition_Group has Edition access to the structure folder, and Read_Group has access to the rigth branch of structure folder with Read rigths.

Edition_Group has a child which is Edition_Group_2. Now I'm trying to grant Read access to the rigth branch of the structure folder for Edition_Group_2. I've tried to grant Read access for Edition_Group_2 to rigth branch and Iu2019ve been not able to do so. Edition_Group_2 has inherited rights from its parent Edition access level, so Iu2019ve unchecked u201Cinheritu201D for folder and group. Now a user from Edition_Group_2 could create a new web intelligence document. I think it should not be allowed because Read access is more restrictive than Edition access.

Could anybody help me?

Thank you in advance,

    As you have changed Inherited rights, try Advanced Rights option to give exact access rights.

    Thank You!!

    Which authorizations are applied is also dependen from the exact level you assigned them.

    Keep in mind that inheritence is weaker that direct assignment. If a user inherits a "deny" setting for a specific right on a specific object (eg. due to the parent folder or the folder the object is in) and you assign directly an "allow" setting for the same right then the user will get the "allow" setting applied at the end.

    The same is valid for inheritence due to group membership.
