I'm working in the support team for SP 2013 On Premise and I'm a bit stuck on an issue that a user raised.
The structure of the site collection is: - parent site (used by multiple departments) - sub-site (with unique authorizations to only one department) - in the sub-site above there are 2 wiki pages libraries: one should inherit the same authorizations as the sub-site, the other one should have unique permissions.
When trying to break inheritance on the 2nd wiki pages library it works, but whatever group I delete or add to the library authorizations, it's mirroring in the sub-site authorizations too, as if the break inheritance feature didn't work.
Now I'm currently giving unique authorizations per each page in the 2nd library, individually, but it is a bit of a struggle because it's not 1-2 pages, there are a lot of them. Is there an easier way of doing this?
Any ideas would be great! Thank you!
