Site owners can't create subsites, only site collection administrators can create subsites RRS feed

  • Question

  • The issue here is that users from site under the top level site collection which has unique permissions suddenly they are not able to create subsites anymore although they are members of site owners group and have full control rights in the site.

    So far, i found out that the issue is occurring when using one specific template, which was site saved as template.

    the template inherits the permissions from the site, and the site owners were able to create sites until few days ago when they told me that access denied message is appearing when creating new subsites.

    I made a test account and gave him site owners rights to try and invoke the error and indeed it happened and found this is the uls logs:
