Value List Permissions

Access for viewing this value list and creating items to the list can be defined on the Permissions tab.

If the user does not have the permission to view the name of the value list, it is not available for selection in M-Files (for example, when you are creating a new search).

If the user cannot see the value list, the user does not have the permission to create items to it either. However, the user may have the permission to see the list without having the permission to create new items.

Adjusting Permissions

  1. Open M-Files Admin.
  2. In the left-side tree view, expand a connection to M-Files Server.
  3. In the left-side tree view, expand Document Vaults, and then expand a vault.
  4. Still in the left-side tree view, click the appropriate node or subnode of the vault and select the desired item from the list on the right or from the left-side tree view.
  5. Right-click the item and select Properties from the context menu.
  6. Go to the Permissions tab.
  7. From the Users and user groups list, select the user or user group whose permissions you want to adjust.
    If the user or user group is not on the list, click Add... to add the user or user group to the list.
  8. Either:
    • Check the Allow check box to allow the selected user to see this item.
      or
    • Check the Deny check box to deny the selected user from seeing this item.
  9. Optional: If you want to adjust additional permissions, repeat the steps 7 and 8.
  10. Click OK once you are done.
You have adjusted the view permissions of the selected item for the selected users.
