This is for sharepoint 2019 enterprise on-premise.
What i am having to build is a site in which every site and subsite has its own unique access permission groups. Creating the site and subsite and telling the subsites to not inherit was the easy part. the hard part is finding out how i can add or update a users permissions across multiple subsites within the same site collection.
\ Main Owners Group Members Group Visitors Group
Subsite A Subsite A Owners Group Subsite A Members Group Subsite A Visitors Group Subsite A-1 Subsite A-1 Owners Group Subsite A-1 Members Group Subsite A-1 Visitors Group Subsite A-2 Subsite A-2 Owners Group Subsite A-2 Members Group Subsite A-2 Visitors Group
So i want to add a user to have read only access to the main site /, Subsite A and Subsite A-1 but not subsite A-2 but the only way so far seems to be manually going to each subsite within the collection, click on the visitors group and adding the user. what am i missing?
