    Hi All. Thanks Solution which worked for me is here: Add user in access request list

    Still not able to find root cause of this. Enabling access request should not give such issue as per my understanding.

  • hi Prajakta,

    In the access denied page, check the URL and find the "source" query string where it is redirecting to?

    Also try removing user from entire site collection https://siteurl/_layouts/15/people.aspx?MembershipGroupId=0

    and adding again

  • Hi Prajakta22,

    Whether you cannot access the main page of the site permission or receive an access denied error when performing an operation in the permission page?

    How do you give user full control permission? Whether through AD group, SharePoint group or grant user permission individually?

    Please try to go to site settings -> site collection feature, make sure the “Limited-Access user permission lockdown mode” feature is deactivate, and check the result.

    Best regards,

    Emily Du

  • Was this site collection migrated? Or was it a newly created one?

  • IIRC there's a hidden permission list at the top level of the site that they may not have access to. I had a similar issue previously, and generally full control permission groups are added there by default, but one group got removed someone and had to be manually added back. It's hidden and the only way to access it is through SP Designer.

    It should show up as a list named access control or something similar, you'll need to be an SCA to be able to access it because even if you have Designer access only an SCA can view the list.

    If I'm right then your owner permission group won't show up there, so you should just need to add that group back with full control and they should be good to go.

    Another possibility is their permissions got stripped from the hidden taxonomy list and is causing problems. I can't speak to viewing permissions specifically but I had an Owner group unable to create any subsites because their permissions got stripped from the hidden taxonomy list, although they would only need read access to that list if that's the issue.

    The URL for that list would be http(s) ://[siteCollectionURL]/lists/TaxonomyHiddenList
