    Item change possible without according staff user rights

    It is possible to modify items via binding functionality without having the staff user right to modify items for the according sublibrary. Can this be avoided?
    When a user has the right to modify only items from sublibrary X he is although able to modify items from sublibrary Y when he uses the binding functionality.


    The difference is that the ITEM-PUT permission is checked on the sublibrary level. That's why actions on Sublibrary A are prevented.
    However, the GLOBAL-CHANGES permission is NOT checked on the sublibrary level. User XXX has permission for GLOBAL-CHANGES on the library level but denied permission only for Sublibrary A. If you delete the Sublibrary A-level permission and set the entire GLOBAL-CHANGES function to "Denied" for user XXX, you'll be blocked.

    You must understand that the GLOBAL-CHANGES permission cannot be sublibrary-sensitive because of it's nature.
