"New owner must have read permission" error when enrolling to Course Offerings

When attempting to enroll into a Course Offering, the following error message is displayed:
“ [Course Offering name] : The new owner must have read permission ”.
When a Course Connection is created (in this example, via enrolling to a Course Offering), it will be assigned to a new owner.
The new owner will be either:
- the primary faculty of the Course Offering, or,
- the current owner of the Program Enrollment, if there is no primary faculty assigned.
If either one of those users do not have the read permission for Course Connection, the system will be unable to assign it to them, thus prompting the error message seen above.
To resolve this, you will need to assign the right permission set to those users.
Depending on your business requirements, you might have your own custom permission sets.
You may refer to other users that are of the same role, to see if they have the right permission sets as well.
