    Restrict authors on documents in a space


      If you have a space which has permissions to allow a large group of users to view only, but then use the Advanced Options in Edit mode for a specific document to allow one of those users, let's say John Doe, to edit/author that page (so he has access to edit that one page instead of giving him a user override to edit all docs in the space), shouldn't that person be able to edit?  When I try this, and have the user check, he still cannot edit and when I go into edit mode his name is no longer listed under Restricted Authors.  Maybe there is a limitation on who can be a "restricted author" on a document ?


      We are on the latest Jive-n cloud.

          Hi Julio,


          Reviewing through your description I would expect the behavior of the following option:

          to allow the specified users edit permissions to that content. However, if you are seeing a different behavior it's possible you are encountering a bug in the Jive-n cloud platform, so would recommend opening up a case in your customer group here in the Jive Community where the next available support engineer can assist in further investigations and associate it with the related bug is needed.
