CRMNotesManager.RevokeAccess Method

The RevokeAccess method revokes access rights to the note for the specified security principal. This method also applies to all child objects of the note. For all child objects, if the caller does not have share privileges for those object types or share rights to the objects, access to the child objects is not revoked. As a result, the owner of the object or a user who shares the object with share rights automatically has share rights to all child objects of the note. In this case, only the lack of privileges to a particular object type prevents access to the child objects from being revoked.

** Syntax**

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Sub RevokeAccess(
  ByVal Caller As CUserAuth,
  ByVal NoteId As String,
  ByVal SecurityPrincipal As CSecurityPrincipal
public void RevokeAccess(
  CUserAuth  Caller,
  string  NoteId,
  CSecurityPrincipal  SecurityPrincipal
public: void RevokeAccess(
  CUserAuth*  Caller,
  String*  NoteId,
  CSecurityPrincipal*  SecurityPrincipal



Specifies the identity of the caller. To perform this action, the caller must have the prvShareNote privilege and access rights on the object to be modified. See CUserAuth.
