Add/Edit Permission dialog box

In this dialog box you can add a new permission to the permissions list or edit the properties of the selected permission.

Option Description
Type Select the type of entity to which you want to grant permission: User or Group.
Name Enter the name of the user or the group that will have the permission.
Note: If you choose the "User" type, you can enter the user name in one of the following forms:
  • Login name, for example, mydomaincom\johns or johns;
  • Display name, for example, John Smith;
  • E-mail, for example,
and click the button next to this field to make the component attempt to validate the specified user. The component searches the user in the SharePoint2007 users list, and if the user is not found, searches it in the domain users list. If the validation is successful, the user name is displayed in the Name field in the form of display name. If the validation fails, the following message appears in the lower part of the dialog box: "User name could not be resolved".

If you choose the "Group" type, you can enter the group name manually or select using the button next to this field. This button opens the Select Name dialog box.

Permissions Enter permission to the corresponding user or group either manually or select from the drop-down list.
Notes Enter a comment to the permission. If you choose the "Group" type, this field contains the description of the selected group.
Note: If you select the Impersonate option on the General tab, then the functionality of this dialog (displaying drop-down list of permissions and user validation) works under the impersonator account.
