This may sound like an odd question, but my objective is to have a secured folder that users can drop confidential files into but not have the ability to read the files within this folder. Any suggestions on how to organize the permissions to make this possible?
Is it possible to assign write permissions to a folder without read permissions being enabled?
Hi Patrick, while you can't have modify without read on the same entry, you can use scope to set up the scenario you described. What you'll want to do is have read and create new documents on the parent folder, but scope it to 'this entry only' when you set it up (and then deny or otherwise not inherit rights for the child documents). That way users will be able to see and create documents within the folder, but will not be able to actually see the documents itself.
You could accomplish this through the use of a simple workflow that upon the user creating or "writing" the document to the folder where they have write access, the workflow would move it to the secure folder where they would not need read or write access. The access to the folder would be granted to the workflow agent.
