Problem with end user not being able to create alerts
I created a team site as a sub site off our main site. I broke inheritance from the parent and added a new group and assigned that group a custom permission that has create alerts permission. Problem is when the end user goes to create alerts it throws an access denied error after clicking okay on the new alert page. I've checked and rechecked permissions and everything looks to be setup correctly?

I would double check that you're on at least SP2 or greater - there were some patches along the way to fix the way SP calculates inherited permissions. No guarantee, but a good starting point?

Thanks Chris. SP2 is installed, we are running version 126.96.36.19929. A little more info............. Authentication is FBA and the group has a role assigned to it from our customer database, which I have checked and the correct role is showing up for this user. Here is my custom permission: List - add items, view items, open items, view versions, create alerts, view application pages Site - view pages, use remote interfaces, use client integration features, open The lists are setup read access: All Items and Edit Access is currently at None (also tried Only their own) I've tried setting up permissions via a group and then inheriting the role into that group. I also tried just assigning the permission to the role.

I could be totally off on this, but I know sometimes when I've had people have issues creating custom pages (ie, getting Access Denied), I would have to give them read rights to the actual template. Could it be something similar going on?

Chris, I initially thought your idea worked, but then I realized I was logged in as an owner. Not sure why, but I once I add edit item to the permission alerts work? In this case it's okay b/c I want the users to be able to edit their own posts, submissions, etc... Edit items permission is not required or not supposed to be anyway to create an alert so still confused.
