Kim is a member of the Marketing group with Editor access, and she is also a member of the News group with Author access. Kim has no rights assigned at the individual level within the access control list (ACL). These two groups reside in the Sales database. Which statement is TRUE about what Kim will be able to do?
- Kim can modify the database design.
- Kim cannot delete any documents in the database.
- Kim will be able to modify the ACL of the database if needed.
- Kim will be able to edit documents that she creates in the Sales database.
D. Kim will be able to edit documents that she creates in the Sales database.
When a user who is a member of two groups that are both part of the access control list of the database, the user will have the highest access of the two groups. In the question scenario, the Marketing group has the highest level of access, which is Editor. As an Editor, Kim can create, read and edit all documents, unless the documents have a restriction that does not allow for this.
For Kim to be allowed to modify the database design, she would need a minimum ACL access level of Designer.
For Kim to be able to modify the ACL of a database or delete the database, she would need a minimum access level of Manager.
If Kim had an individual ACL assignment in addition to her group assignment, the individual assignment would take precedence over the group assignment, even if the individual assignment were lower than the group assignment. For example, if Kim had been given Reader access in the ACL and she was a member of a group with Editor access, she would only have Reader access, since individual assignment takes precedence over a group assignment.
