I have an issue tracking list in a subsite (e.g. http://myserver/myarea/lists/issuetracking) where I have overridden the permissions and have granted contribute permissions to the MyServer Visitors group. When the users try to set an alert on the list or an item they receive an Access Denied message. This, in spite of the fact that they can contribute items to the list. According to the permissions breakdown the Contribute permission group should be sufficient for creating alerts, however it does not appear to be in this case. Can anyone think of further troubleshooting as to why alerting functionality in particular is unavailable to these users

Thanks,

Colin

Just for kicks, try adding the Approve permission to users. There seems to be a bug with alerts on some site definitions. I have a support case open and am working with MS SharePoint Dev support on the issue.

No dice. Even if I give a user explicit Full Control access they will not be able to add alerts on the list. It's only when I add someone to the site members group does it allow them to add alerts. This certainly feels like a bug to me.

Anyone else seen this Where's the product group in this discussion

We are having the same problem. On a site created from the publishing site template I'm unable to create an alert. Access denied. Other actions like connect to outlook work. When I add the user to the members group it works.

Too bad there isn't any MS folks here to comment. Sad

Hi,

I had this problem too, but I think I found out what is happening. I have a publishing site and this site is anonymous (part of it), so I depend on that. only setting permissions for users who can make announcements/discussions.. but the site is anonymous and anonymous users cannot set alerts ..

So .. I created a group with all authenticated users in it and gave it read permissions to the site, and (when you don't inherit this permissions to your lists, as I do) .. also gave read permissions to this group to the lists.

It works fine now for me..

Hope this will help ..
