Feature Summary & Impacts to User Groups
New Feature: Ability to configure the permission set for performing a Finalize or Restore operation
With 365Connect a Finalize or Restore operation can be performed from the item context for documents within the SharePoint Online ecosystem. Once either of these actions are performed the executing user will be validated against the configured permission settings for their respective action. The permission set for each operation is configured in the Mid-Tier at the Site Collection level. The Finalize and Restore operations are configured independently of each other.
Deployment User Impacts
|Configurations required by System Administrator||Settings to be reviewed by Records Administrator||Additional Notes|
The permission set associated with both the Finalize and Restore operations are configured in the Mid-Tier. They are configured at the site collection level. The default value for Finalize and Restore is EditListItems.
To see more on configuration the permission set see the following article Configure permission for Finalize and Restore.
The Finalize and Restore context menu items will not be displayed\hidden based on the configured permission set.
When a user performing either a Finalize or Restore that fails to meet the permission set criteria they will receive a message saying that they do not have sufficient rights to perform the requested action.
