FAQ: Cannot validate group join/leave request

Version HistoryVersion History

Title

Cannot validate group join/leave request

Answer

Q: I am owner/manager of CTA e-group MYGROUP, which is managed by the SharePoint portal. When I receive requests from a new member to join MYGROUP, I follow the link to validate the request, but am redirected to a page which tells me "Error: Access Denied".

A: Unfortunately this is a longstanding issue. It is a fake error, because the redirection after the successful validation goes to a page, which is only accessible to site administrators. Therefore:

  • Validate the join (or leave) request as indicated.
  • Ignore the error message.
  • Check the list membership.

And usually you will find that the new member has been added to (or removed from, in case of a leave request) theĀ MYGROUP list.
