Set permissions when a node is created/uploaded

Question asked by calle on Feb 9, 2011
Hi
One thing I can't find in the Alfresco forms is a way to set node permissions on creation. For example when a document is created or uploaded I would like to show the standard meta data form but adding fields to set permissions on the newly created document. My solution so far has been to use associations on the node that corresponds to certain pre-defined roles and then in a policy set the corresponding permissions. However this requires some non-trivial extensions and would be much more simple if the forms engine could handle permissions or at least provide a "permission form" for a node.

Anyone else who has similar challanges and/or any hints on a better solution?

btw, one thing I miss from the old Explorer interface was the wizard framework that let you design this kind of UI flows…
