I am wondering if it is still possible to assign unique permissions to specific promoted links in sharepoint 2016 (on-prem). I have full rights and was made a site collection admin but I still am unable to uniquely assign permissions to one of the 3 promoted links I have setup. The "shared with" is greyed out.enter image description here

Am I missing something?


Unique permission is still possible, but the option is grayed out on ITEMS tab. It seems to be a known issue only in SP16 (also found in another post).

As a workaround, you can use the “Shared With” option on the display form, which is still available and in function.
