Issue



 Under certain circumstances, a user that has been denied access to a particular folder, within an archive that they do have access to, can still search and view the index metadata of items within that folder. The index metadata that can be searched and viewed includes the subject, author, recipients and, if Indexing Level is set to Full, content snippets.

Note that the data archived from the inaccessible folders will not be retrievable or viewable in its entirety, which is the correct behaviour. 


Solution



 If a user is denied access to a particular folder, they will not be able to search or view the index metadata of items within that folder.
