The workaround appears to be working, thank you.
I do not have a separate dev environment to be testing that significant of changes at the moment. Also I setup the CPT in the functions.php file, I did not use a plugin to create it.
Aside from this issue, it appears I can give this restricted user access to “upload_file”. This gives them access to view files in the Media Gallery they did not upload. Can that be restricted so they can only see photos they uploaded?
Thank you Vladimir!
