Manage permissions through policy (Office SharePoint Server)

Office 2007

Applies To: Office SharePoint Server 2007

Sometimes, you might want different users or groups to have different levels of access to sites within Web applications. For example, a financial company with both banking and investment branches might want to limit the access of its investment branch to resources in its banking branch for fiduciary reasons.

To manage permissions policies for Web applications, open the Policy for Web Application page:

  1. On the top navigation bar, click Application Management.

  2. On the Application Management page, in the Application Security section, click Policy for Web application.

What do you want to do?

Add users and define policy

  1. On the Policy for Web Application page, click Add Users.

  2. On the Add Users page, on the Web Application menu in the Web Application section, if the Web application for which you want to set policy for users is not selected, click Change Web Application.

    • In the Select Web Application dialog box, click the Web application for which you want to set policy for users.

  3. On the Add Users page, in the Zones box in the Select the Zone section, select the zone for which you want to set policy.

  5. In the Choose Users section, in the Users box, add the user names of the users for whom you want set policy.
