Access Denied by record rules for operation! Cause?

on 4/10/13, 11:48 AM 4,198 views

My log file has a large number of exceptions like the one below; what could be the cause?

It happens every time a remote user first connects to my server URL, before any attempt to login.

I expect I have an incomplete or incorrect configuration of portal.

I have installed and configured:

  • auth_signup
  • auth_oauth
  • auth_oauth_signup
  • portal
  • portal_anonymous
  • web

Ha! Asking the question made me understand the mistake I was making.

The answer is simply to ensure that the user anonymous is allowed to access the portal, as follows:

In Settings | Users | Users find and edit the user anonymous. In the Other section of the tab Access Rights, find and ensure the checkbox Portal is checked.
