Parent hub site: ER

Child hub site: HR (associated with ER hub site)

"Sync hub permissions to associated sites" - turned on

[email protected] hub visitor added to parent hub site


[email protected] added to folder Hub Visitors under Permissions for ER hub site.

[email protected] not visible in folder Hub Visitors under Permission for HR hub site.

Accessing HR site as [email protected] visitor resulted in access denied.

If hub visitor permissions are synced with associated sites, why am I getting an access denied error?

1 Answer 1


Per my test, this is caused by the wrong order of operations.

1.First, you should register the ER as hub site.

2.Then, go to Site permissions of ER -> Turn on Sync hub permissions to associated sites.

3.Add Hub Visitors.

4.Associate the HR site with ER hub site.
