Restricting user access to specific document


Description:

I want to restrict access to specific documents only to a group of users.

 
Solution:

There are two levels of access to documents that can be managed in DocPublisher:

1. Reading the document

When a new document is created, it is initially visible to all users that have access to the document library. This includes registered DocPublisher users (listed in Administration->Manage users section), as well as other users that have access to DocPublisher document library as readers (for more information on setting access for readers, see this article). If you wish to further restrict visibility of the document to a specific group of users, go to "Permissions" tab, section "Publication users", click "Change", and select users or groups that you want to allow access to the document.

Please note that, in addition to the users selected here, all users registered with Administrator or Content Manager role will be able to see the document as well.
 

2. Editing the document

The user that creates the document is allowed to edit it initially. If you wish to expand this list, go to "Permissions" tab, section "Draft editors", click "Change", and select appropriate editors from the list of registered DocPublisher users.
Please note that, in addition to the users selected here, all users registered with Administrator or Content Manager role will be able to edit the document as well.
Also note that the current user can not remove himself/herself from the list of editors.
