Document Version Control and Permissions

Question asked by insumo on Mar 31, 2009
Hi All,

I have a question regarding how permissions affect past versions of a document. Take the following scenario…

- I have a document in Alfresco DMS. It has been set with permissions to only permit me(owner) to read and/or modify.
- I make a number of changes to the document, and as a result, create three or four versions.
- I make final changes, create a release version, and set read access to the broader group of users.

Will the users that have read permission to the final version also now have permission to the version history, and/or the previous versions of the document?

Or, more specifically, do permissions apply to the meta document that represents all versions of the document, or are they applied to the specific instance of a versioned document?

Thanks in advance
Steve
