Trailhead Challenge Error: Review the instructions for setting the Job Posting status to 'Read/Write'.

In "Keep Data Secure in a Recruiting App" trailhead project, on step "Restrict Data Access with Field-Level Security, Permission Sets, and Sharing Settings", I have got the following error :

Review the instructions for setting the Job Posting status to 'Read/Write'

Did someone faced that and how to fix it ?

There's something weird. on the last screenshot regarding (Sharing settings), I see that Job Posting is "Public read only"
But this object is a junction object and following the steps won't give access to this setting but "Controlled by Parent".

I'm don't understand what "status" is referenced by the error message. There's a status field on Job Posting Site object as well as on Position object but not on Job Posting which contains only 2 master details fields.

I managed to fix this by changing the relationships to Position and Job Posting Site from Master-Detail to Lookup. This allows you to set the permissions for the Job Posting object independently to Public Read Only which then passes the verify step.
Probably not the best way to write the app, but at least you can get the badge :)

I too got the same error, cross checked multiple time. There is no place where it say to specifty permission for Job Posting status. I seem to be bug in the validation of this badge

same situation - Will try the workaround you mentioned

Error:  Review the instructions for setting the Job Posting Site status to 'Public Read Only'. BUT Positions  is set to private and there is a Master-Detail to Lookup
REquest: 
Select Public Read Only for the Job Posting Site object.
Select Private for the Position object.
