FAQ: Is it possible to restrict users with the Publisher role to access and publish to specific folders only?

Question

Is it possible to restrict users with the Publisher role to access and publish to specific folders only?

Answer

No, it is not possible to restrict users with Publisher roles to access and publish to specific folders only. A user with the role type set to Publisher or Administrator automatically gets implicit access permissions to all services and folders, and the permissions cannot be overridden by the security settings of a folder. 

To restrict a user’s access to a specific folder, assign the user with the User role type, instead of Publisher. For more information on this, refer to the following documentation, ArcGIS for Server: Managing roles in Manager and ArcGIS for Server: Editing permissions in Manager.
