Hi there

Why does this user's account show certain things under Deny? (As per the screenshot below).
How to NOT Deny these things to him, please?

Thank you.

    It caused by that Custom Script is disabled in the SharePoint Online for security reasons by default.

    You should enable Custom Script to remove Deny permission.

    1.Go to SharePoint admin center (https://<tenant>-admin.sharepoint.com) -> Click Settings in the left navigation -> Scroll down to “Custom Script” section -> In the Custom Script section, Set “Allow users to run custom script on personal site” and “Allow users to run custom script on self-service created sites” options.

    However, this change may take up to 24 hours to reflect. To enable Custom Script in a particular site collection immediately, please use following PowerShell through SharePoint Online Management Shell.


    $Cred = Get-Credential  
    Connect-SPOService -URL $AdminSiteURL -Credential $Cred  
    Set-SPOSite $SiteURL -DenyAddAndCustomizePages $False  

    Allow or prevent custom script
