    Users group for View not for publish

    Sandra_Bercke
      Hi guys,
      Does anybody can tell me how can I creat users group for view and not for publication?
      It's something like to create Contribute roles, but is not related with the permission levels to publish, but with the visualization permissions for exclusivy content, for ex.:

      Home (open for all users)-------- IT Dept--------Directory Dept ---------Support Dept
      - Johny - Johny - Joseph - Isaac
      - Jack - Jack - JJ - Jason
      - Rose - Rose - Robert
      - Joseph - Lisa
      - JJ
      - Isaac
      - Jason
      - Robert
      - Lisa

      Please somebody help me, It's very, very important!!!

      Thanks in advance for who can help me.

      San.

          You cannot restrict on the users to view a particular folder (say IT
          dept) using contribute. Infact there is a setting in IIS Webserver which
          allows you to set an Authentication mechanism where users when browsed
          to any site on your webserver will be prompted for username and password.

          But you might want to try something like this.. not sure if this will
          help you...
          1. Create 4 connections in contribute
          a) first connection to "Open for all users" directory on your webserver.
          b) second connection to "IT Department" directory on your webserver.
          c) third connection to "Directory dept"... etc

          2. This way you can administer 4 sites and send connection keys to them
          accordingly...

          Hope this helps.
