  • SharePoint out of the box doesn't retain a permission history, so there is no way to see when permissions for a specific person or group were removed.

  • Hi

    Permission history is not supported by SharePoint.

  • Is it possible to get the report using SharePoint Designer? If yes, appreciate if you can reply with guidance. Regards,

  • No, because, as Paul has already stated, it doesn't record permission history.
