In Sharepoint 2010 (on prem deployment), I have created a publishing page which contains a custom list and a few views.

I have broken permissions inheritance for this page. There are three users within one permissions group (full control).

One of the users within the said group is unable to create or modify list views. I have tested the permissions on a couple of different accounts with no problems and can edit/create views.

I have already tried to reset the permissions for this user by deleting from this group and giving full control access directly. Furthermore, I have also tried assigning the user to another permission group (full control). This also had no effect.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

  • Multiple domains? User's browser and version?

  • Can the user edit the list view settings if provided the URL directly instead of using the ribbon. Or perhaps through the list settings, modify/create view.

Have you checked the permissions on the list itself, by the sounds of things, the list may have different permissions to the page

  • Have checked the permissions on the list and it is inheriting from its parent which is the page. Thanks

    A list cannot inherit from a page. A page is an item in a library.

I have seen an issue with a user having full control on a subsite, but no permission on the top level site. Some of the system pages and functionality is reliant on contents of system lists/libraries at the root. Try granting your group read access at the root site for the collection.
