Auto assign ACL to document author

0 Kudos


We are implementing the SAP EP 6 SP 14 KM module and we are looking for a simple way to automate the assignment of ACL's.

We use the standard upload iView and the documents inherit the ACL's from the folder, so far, so good. When Everyone is set to Read/Write access, every uploaded document will inherit this permission setting, nice.

Now, is there any way to assign different ACL's for different documents? I would like to give the author (who uploads the document) full permissions and not only read/write access. You understand that this problem can not be solved with setting the permissions on folder lever... it's to specific.

So I'm looking for a simple ACL assignment, only for the user, or only for the approvers,... anyone?

I'll give points for helpful answers, thanks!

Hi Detlev,

Thanks for the links, I do understand the problem somewhat better now.

I was hoping we could build this kind of functionality out of the box, without programming, but that seemed a little bit too optimistic.

Thanks again.

PS: I found an ACL Permissions report, doesn't seem to solve this problem but could this be of any help to schedule the assignments of ACL's (at least to set give the author full control)? Just an idea...
