I tried to use Import-SPWeb with option -IncludeUserSecurity but it doesn't import permissions. Do you know any Powershell script that I can use copy list permission to another list?


As per MSDN, "IncludeUserSecurity" - Preserves the user security settings except for SPLists that have broken inheritance and item level permissions set. So list level permission will not be inherited.

  • Info: In our case there was one problem with "IncludeUserSecurity". A user that has been deleted from the site collection (flag tp_isActive = 0 in dbo.userinfo table in the content database) has been activated again.
