I am working with a SharePoint 2013 server farm. We have several sites created under a single site-collection using publishing. The quick launch navigation is set up currently but, it is not working the way we had hoped.
We have granted access to users for specific files in a document library. We would like for the user to be able to use the navigation (quick launch or other means) to access the site, library and only see the files that they have been granted access to. So far we have configured a custom security privilege that allows our users to see the navigation but only if they have access to all files in the library (permissions granted at the library level).
Our preference is to grant access to a file in a document library and the navigation be available to the user that file access was granted to. Is this possible in SharePoint 2013 out-of-the-box or is there a customization that can be put into place to provide this type of functionality? All help is much appreciated.
Site -> Library -> Item (Permissions Granted Here)
