permissions for dataList - read and add

Question asked by icm76 on Apr 29, 2013
hi,

i'm interested in obtaining the following behavior for dataLists: a certain user may *read* and *add* content in datalists but *not modify* their content

I've found out that dataLists are folders in the repository so I've tried:
- setting Contributor permission for userX on the specified dataList (guid) folder and i get an error (You do not have the appropriate permissions to perform this operation)
- modify \tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\model\permissionDefinitions.xml by adding a new permissionGroup:

1. includePermissionGroup permissionGroup="Read" type="sys:base"
2. includePermissionGroup permissionGroup="Consumer" type="cm:cmobject"
3. includePermissionGroup permissionGroup="Write" type="sys:base"

for this config I get some kind of Editor but I'm not interested in this behavior. Also I've tried with

<includePermissionGroup permissionGroup="AddChildren" type="sys:base"/>  (like a regular Contributor) but it does not work

Please help!
Thank you,
Catalin
