SharePoint User Permission


  • I have a sub site in SharePoint 2013. In that sub site there is a task list, In that list we have Unique permission for users. I have a User , When I add that user in any group like Full control or Contribute, that user able to access that list. But if I am adding that user as an Individual Permission level and that user try to access that list they get Access Denied Error. How is it possible that same user working different role in different places,

    Anyone can help me out here.

  • Is this list inheriting permissions from the parent site or has the permission been copied and is now stand alone? It sound like that list may be inheriting permissions from the parent site/folder etc that could be causing the individual permission to get denied. Can the person access sites/folders above this specific task list or the sub site itself?
