Problem

A SharePoint web application can potentially contain thousands of site collections. Granting or denying uniform access to all of those site collections for a set of users can be difficult to apply and manage.

Solution

A User Policy allows a Farm Administrator to grant or deny access for a set of users to all site collections contained within a web application. Permissions applied using a User Policy cannot be over-ridden at the individual site collection, providing Farm Administrators with the ability to supercede local permissions when necessary.

A User Policy can be used to grant permissions from four (4) pre-defined permissions sets:

  • Full Control
  • Full Read
  • Deny Write
  • Deny All
In this tip, I will demonstrate how to add a new User Policy to a web application.
