Permissions disconnected content group is still changed to parent site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Problem with permissions after they are disconnected

    After the permissions have been removed no longer be inherited from the parent site. We still have a problem with granting permissions to everything relevant to a site to collection such libraries etc. After adjusting the users in such a group (visitors) happened it that in the above site content The group has been changed. What is here for a solution? whether or not I do it not good, we all need to make new custom groups. Strange problem?



    Who can help me

  • Hi martijn,

    Did you mean that you breaked the inherited permissions from parent site, then granted the permissions to subsite, then there appeared a permission of “Limited Access” in parent site. If it was, it is normal, because it lets the users access the parent site with that permission.

    Refer to this article:

    “The Limited Access permission level is designed to be combined with fine-grained permissions to give users access to a specific list, document library, item, or document, without giving them access to the entire site. However, to access a list or library, for example, a user must have permission to open the parent Web site and read shared data such as the theme and navigation bars of the Web site. The Limited Access permission level cannot be customized or deleted.

    Note You cannot assign this permission level to users or SharePoint groups. Instead, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 automatically assigns this permission level to users and SharePoint groups when you grant them access to an object on your site that requires that they have access to a higher level object on which they do not have permissions. For example, if you grant users access to an item in a list and they do not have access to the list itself, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 automatically grants them Limited Access on the list, and also the site, if needed.”

    Also there is an article talking about this in detail.

    Thanks & Regards,
