While working with Access Request list of a site, in the list permissions, I stopped inheriting permissions from parent and then accidentally removed permission for all the groups & users. How can I revert this? Does the Site-collection Admin still has access to this list?


As I understand, you need to restore inheritance .

  • Go to the list, library, or survey and open it.
  • Go to the Permissions page to the list, library, or survey using the steps in the section above.
  • On the Permissions tab (for a list or a library), click Delete unique permissions.

  • Hi @M.Qassas, thanks for your response. Since I have removed the permission for all users/groups, I don't have access to the list. – Obiliraj Jul 26 '16 at 10:34
