Cascade Permissions - individual access permissions to different folders in same site.

The ability to publish content is handled separately from Access Rights (read/write permissions) so this should definitely be possible. Here are some general steps:

  • Use Access and/or Access for contents to provide "read" access to the parent folder(s) of the individual student folders so that users can see and navigate to them.
  • For the direct parent folder of the individual student folders, right-click and choose Access for contents. Choose "Overwrite existing access rights", and then for "Access level for all users" choose "None". What this does is hide the subfolders from non-admins unless they have explicit "read" access.
  • Then for each individual student folder, use Access and Access for contents to assign "write" access to the appropriate users.
  • In the students' Site Role, ensure they have neither of the "Publish readable/writable Home Area assets" abilities enabled, so they can't publish content they have read or write access to.
