Acess Denied when adding a site column to a list from existing columns RRS feed

  • Question

  • When a site owner with "full" permissions to their site, (below the site collection) tries to view "Site Columns", he gets an access denied page. Making him a Site Collection Administror or giving him "full" access to the top-level site is not an option. Does anyone have any advice?

  • Are these columns linked with any content type in Site Collection ?

    And if its true then check with Sub Site owner with fresh column creation, if it will work then you must have to add sub site owner to site collection with read access to view the column linked to content type.
