SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am facing a very frustating permission level issue with Sharepoint 2010. First, everything worked as expected up to few days ago.

I have a user on my sharepoint 2010 env (publishing portal) named rjo who is site collection administrator and has also Full Control permission level.

When I execute the Check Permission command from the ribbon I get the following:

Permission levels given to xxxx\rjo

Full Control
Given through the "xxx Owners" group.

The following factors also affect the level of access for xxx\rjo (xxx\rjo)

Deny
Manage Permissions
Create and change permission levels on the Web site and assign permissions to users and groups.

Deny
Create Subsites
Create subsites such as team sites, Meeting Workspace sites, and Document Workspace sites.

etc.. Seems like all the individual permissions are set to deny.

If I remove the user rjo from the Full Control permission level, all the deny permissions disappear. I have tried creating a brand new permission level with Allow permission on al items but I still get the deny when I check the permissions. Notice that this happens for all the users.

Does anyone experienced a similar issue? I suspect some kind of Windows update to have messed up the permissions but I cannot find a way to get proper permissions to my users.

Solved.

I had to remove all the permission assignments in "Manage Permission Policy Levels" and recreated them in order to remove the deny permission that were applied.

I had a similiar situation. One site collection in a web application was displaying a similiar output for all users in the Site Owners group. Additionally other functions on ribbon were greyed out or missing. Further investigation revealed that users were also not able to add content to site. The Add button was missing.

Eventually determined that the Site Collection was locked as Read-only. Set to Not Locked.

Central Admin > Manage Web Applications > Configure Quotas and Locks change web app and site collection as needed. Change from 'Read-only' to 'Not Locked'
