The Aspire SharePoint Web Services extension is required for accessing full document-level security ACLs from SharePoint, as well as for some additional features. 

The required files for SharePoint 2010 can be found here using your Aspire credentials:

Features Provided with the Extended Web Service

The following features will be available if you install the extended web service:

  • Security ACLs will be available for folders and documents.

    Without the extension, security information will be retrieved for only for sites and lists, and their ACLs will be automatically propagated to all of the items they contain. Individual document-level security ACLs will not be available.

  • URL provided to the connector can be from any site or sub-site, list or folder.

    Without the extension, the URL must be a site collection URL.

  • The account used to run the connector will need fewer access rights.
  • Hierarchical information required for Aspire Corporate Wide Sitemap will be available.

    This is used to implement the Aspire Corporate-Wide Sitemap feature.

  • Site Collection discovery.
