GCP Jupyter Permission Denied when saving HTTP:403 Forbidden

Whenever jupyter tries to save an edit, I get an orange error bar across the screen.
I assigned read-write-execution permissions to the notebook (chmod a=rwx weather-vizualizations-cluster-predictions.ipynb). No change.
I get this error regardless of user or if jupyter is run remotely or via localhost:8080.

Exact Error is: “Unexpected error while saving file: projects/ChiPrecipitation/weather-vizualizations-cluster-predictions.ipynb HTTP: 403 Forbidden (Permission denied: projects/ChiPrecipitation/weather-vizualizations-cluster-predictions.ipynb)”

It turns out I needed upgrade the permissions for it’s containing folders too (projects & ChiPrecipitation).

gotta thank ChatGPT for the solution.
