I'm working in a SharePoint 2013 on prem environment and I'm running into an odd issue. Here's the setup.
There is a subsite (A) in a site collection that has differing permissions from the parent. This subsite (A) has several subsites (B,C,D, etc) that inherit permissions from A.
Subsite A is managed by a group, Subsite A Owners. User X is a member of this group. There is another group in Subsite A called Group B. Group B is setup to allow access requests and those requests are sent to User X and the Group is owned by Subsite A Owners.
When User X goes into Group B to add users, the share with dialog box does not have the box to to input anyone's name. It is completely gone. The only thing that exists is the optional description box.
I have not seen this behavior before. Some things I've tried
- Making sure User X has access to the Access Requests list/resetting the permissions inheritance
- Disabling Limited Permission Lockdown Mode
- Comparing various lists and settings to other sites via SPManager
We had tried giving User X site collection administrator permissions, but that didn't fix the issue. I'm not sure what else to do or check.
