    What's the best way to implement the "Permissions" button (Define who is allowed to read, edit and delete items. ) on an intra-site module (I created this module according to the video from, I have read a topic "Secured Intra-Site Module with LINQ Provider" ( but this seems very complex if I need to do it for many intra-site modules.

    Hello Thomas Stringham,

    I suggest that you should take a look at these posts and the whole implementation provided there.

    Sample intra site module: Contacts intra site module
    Sample pluggable module: Contacts pluggable module
    Sample Generic Content based module: Products module

    The samples above are based on the new backend architecture. Each of them shows how to implement custom permissions. If you use GenericContent based module you could just inherit from SecuredModule and then from the PermissionsView which is a base class. This will save you lot of time and it is useful when you want to have similar module like News, GenericContent, Events, Blogs. Each of these modules implements the base PermissionsView class.
