Hi am having a strange issue I am working on SharePoint 2010 and I have two document libraries where the permissions of inheritance is broken and permissions given direct;y with a group called "ABC" which has contribute access. I have added users to that group. But the users are not able to see the document library web part i have added to the site they get the below error "Webpart error: Access denied. You don not have permission to perform this action or access this resource". Some one can help me out. thanks

  • i think you have given access to the people only for a document library and not to the site where the webpart is added . right ? Commented Jun 10, 2015 at 13:36
  • HI Manish I have created this ABC permission group on site and I am using this permission group on the document library web part.
