Blocking Rights Inheritance

The rights that are granted or denied in a space are applied to the space's content, including its sub-spaces. You thus have the same rights in the sub-spaces as in the parent space. That is called rights inheritance.

You can block this inheritance. It enables you to block the access of a sub-workspace to the workspace's users, for instance, or to deeply modify the access rights in the sub-workspace.

To block rights inheritance:

  1. Click on the Permissions tab of the space of which you want to the access rights. The Access Rights sub-tab is displayed.
  2. Click on the Block button located under the PERMISSIONS INHERITED FROM UPPER LEVELS table.

    Now only local persmissions applied, any change made on parent document won't affect the access conditions to this document. You and the administrators will be added to local permissions.

  3. You can now grant access rights to specific users.
