Subject Re: example of item authorization
Date Mon, 25 Aug 2008 15:28:45 GMT
Ok, I figured out part of the Item authorization and am working  
through some related AccessManager issues. But the primary question  
that I still have is how should I setup the workspaces given the below  

Each client will need access to only one folder (or sub-folder in the  
workspace depending on how we set it up. After working with the  
AccessManager I'm leaning towards just giving each client their own  
workspace to ease any access issues (like they don't have access to  
the root workspace, but they do have access to a specific sub-folder).

Would love to hear others opinions before I go down this path though.
