Sharepoint permissions issue

Posted on 2013-06-21

Hello,

I'm running Sharepoint 2007.

I've created a certain a group of users and I only want them to be able to work with one folder in Shared Content.

So, I've created the group, put the users in the group, and gave the group full access to the folder.

However, when one of the users logs in, they just get an "Error: Access Denied" page.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Are you using Active Directory group?

I had the same problem in my company with SP 2007 and the only solution I found was to add them to the folder though SharePoint instead of using Active Directory.

Thanks for your reply.

Ah, how would I know if I'm using Active Directory Group?

You can grant rights in SharePoint by creating a group in Active Directory and then adding the group to the Library Permissions and giving it the correct rights.

For EX:
Create a security group in AD Called SP_Main_Page_Full_Access
In this group add John M. and Jill D.
Then add the group in SharePoint and give it full rights to the main site.

In theory this should work and John and Jill should now have full rights , because they are in the group SP_Main_Page_Full_Access in Active Directory. However, in my company it worked 90% of the time. Sometimes, for certain pages the people got "Error: Access Denied" page, just like in your case, even though they ware members of the group. When this happened the only solution I found was to go to the Library Permissions page and select the person's name (EX: John M.) and give them full rights directly in SharePoint without using the group.
