Value List Permissions

Access for viewing this value list and creating items to the list can be defined on the Permissions tab.

If the user does not have the permission to view the name of the value list, it is not available for selection in M-Files (for example, when you are creating a new search).

If the user cannot see the value list, the user does not have the permission to create items to it either. However, the user may have the permission to see the list without having the permission to create new items.

Editing Permissions

  1. Open M-Files Admin.
  2. In the left-side tree view, expand a connection to M-Files server.
  3. Expand Document Vaults.
  4. Expand a vault.
  5. Click a node that contains items that you want to edit.
  6. Select an item in the listing area.
  7. Right-click the item and click Properties.
  8. Open Permissions.
  9. In Users and user groups, select the user or user group whose permissions to change.
    If the user or user group is not on the list, click Add.
  10. Specify the permissions for the selected user or user group.
    Allow: Enable this to explicitly give the permission to the selected user or user group.
    Deny: Enable this to explicitly deny the permission from the user or user group.
    The Deny setting is normally used to specify an exception to an Allow setting. For example, when John Doe is part the group HR Managers, you can set Allow for the group and Deny for John Doe.
    You can also leave both settings unselected.
  11. Repeat steps 9 and 10 for the rest of the permissions.
  12. Click OK.
