I wanted to remove permission only to one library, but due to my lack of knowladge I deleted permission to whole group of user. When I reasigned permission they can still can't log in to home page. They do have permission to the other sites but have "access denied" erorr in mian page. How can I fix it? I simply removed user permision from one library and it had impact on whole SP site. And when I had restored it users can't log in into ghome page. enter image description here

  • Make sure that users are there in appropriate group .. you have made changes in library,. so that should not affect on site... so please check the site groups & it's permissions... Commented Oct 6, 2016 at 11:22
  • I'm 100% sure that users are in that group. 1. I removed group from library, 2. Readded then 3. Nobody from that group have access to main site

  • You can user Check Permissions on site level to see to what users have access, have you granted the group you recreated same permission level? Commented Oct 6, 2016 at 11:49

If users have permissions in the main site, check if the Site Pages library is inheritnig from the main site permissions.

  • Hey, how I can do that?

  • Go to Site Contents > Site Pages > Library Tab > Library Configuration > Manage Permissions. Site Pages Library is the Library where all your SharePoint site pages are stored by default. They probably don't have permission to your MainPage.aspx

Check Site Permissions

  • Go to Site Settings > Site Permissions
  • Make sure that group is assigned.
