MetaVis Platform Features Overview: Browse list or library permissions and copy selected list permissions between lists

SharePoint lists by default have their permissions inherited from the sites where they got created. However it is possible to break list permission inheritance and set up unique permissions for the specific list. In this case list permissions will not be changed in case someone will change site permissions however unique users or groups could be added to the list permissions.


MetaVis Migrator and MetaVis Change Manager support copying or unique list permissions between SharePoint sites. This time we added a function to display list permissions in the MetaVis Content Viewer and copy individual permissions between lists, sites and site collections.


Right click on a list, select Objects and then Show Permissions menu item to browse list permissions.



Users can copy and paste or drag-and-drop permissions records from this Permissions Viewer to the other list in this or other SharePoint site.


Also note the little icon on the Permissions Viewer toolbar that is an indicator that the list has permissions inherited from the parent site. Clicking on this button would break or restore list permissions inheritance.
