Sharepoint Read permissions but no site access?!!
Posted on 2009-04-23
Hitting out Sharepoint site are all NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users. Given the default set of Read permissions, they are denied access. However, if i add to the set of permissions associated with "Read", namely the permission to Edit Items, not only can they access the entire site, they also see a "Site Actions" tab with the option to Edit Page. So...they either have too little/no access, or too much/they can add/edit pages. What's happening? Where's the middle ground?!
