I'm currently using ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 and am having an issue that did not previously exist in our 10.6.1 environment.
Using a Portal account with admin permissions, I cannot share items owned by another user to any groups. Both members (myself and the person who owns that item) are in the group I am trying to share the item to. I've verified in the group settings that anyone in the group can contribute content.
This was not an issue in 10.6.1. I was able to share items, regardless of who they are owned by, to any group, as long as the item owner was also in that group.
Is this expected behavior in 10.9.1? If not, is there anything I need to do differently to be able to share content not owned by myself?
I can't comment on expected behaviour, but as a temporary workaround, could you move the item to your content (reassign ownership), share it to the group, and then reassign it back to the original owner? I appreciate the UX may not be great, but might help in the short term?
Yeah, that is our workaround for now. It works, but it's not great because it's an extra step in the process that we didn't have to previously do. And, personally I don't think it should be expected behavior because the green message in the top right of the screen pops up and says that it was successfully shared (clearly, it did not successfully share because the item is not in the group).
Have you raised it with Esri (or distributor) support to see if it's a bug?
if it helps, then I've just tested:
in both cases it fails to share to the group. I agree the system appears to work in the way that you expect, but fails to actually share. I do not believe you are doing anything wrong/stupid.
My portal is fully patched with the exception of the latest Portal 2022 security update 2 patch.
Hopefully that helps?
Patch applied, now fully up to date. No change. Still get a green success on change, but nothing material happens.
