Administrator gets allways the permissions owner

Hallo everybody,

I have a problem with new folders, are created as subfolders of the main folder documents.

Every time the administrator gets the permission owner of the folder and the documents in there.

But this should be the author who created the folder.

Can anybody help me please.

Thanks and regards

    Hi Johannes and welcome to SDN,

    actually this is not how permissions in a KM repository works. If you take a good look at the page in SAP Help:

    you'll see how it works:

    When you create a new item in a KM folder, the item initially has no access control list. Instead, it inherits the permissions of the superordinate folder. When you change and save the permissions, the system creates a separate ACL for the item in question (and you'll automatically get into the permission owner list)

    Btw: this also means that for your "/documents" folder the administrator is entered as permission owner!

    Hope this helps and clarify things,
