Guest registration list refers to a custom list created to register users for a specific event/exercise/training etc. Within APAN, these lists refers to custom lists setup by Site Owners to pre-register guests before a particular exercise or event. Since the users are not approved to be a member of the respective site, therefore a new security mechanism is needed for the guest registration lists to ensure that security and content of the site is secured while authenticated users are allowed to access a specific list within the site. The following criteria needs to be met as part of the solution provided in these guidelines:
In order to implement security to address these requirements, this would be a two-step process.
By default all sites lists and libraries inherit permissions settings from the site that is in the hierarchy. In order to allow unique per permissions for the list, you have to break permissions inheritance first. Upon creating a new guest or registration list, go to the list’s permission settings and perform the following.
The permissions page for the list or library opens, with a yellow status bar that explains that the list inherits permission from its parent site.
Note: If you don't see list or library permissions, make sure your windows is full screen, as several buttons reduce to just icons without captions.
Now the list is disconnected from the parent site.
Here are two important things to note:
The above settings will setup who can access the registration list, but it also allows the authenticated user to access all content within the registration list. To secure the registration list further, the following actions should be performed.
