AccessDeniedException in EventListener/ViewControllerListener.php

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      When a valid user try to login and access an unauthorized resource, and unauthorizedException is thrown to early in the viewController eventListener.
      Step to reproduce :
      Create a user in member group
      Set restricted section to a content accessible on the front office
      Login on the frontoffice with the member
      try to access your restricted resource --> an UnauthorizedException is raised when loading the dedicated location

      Solution : usage of sudo to load the current location

      Update (customer support):

      Steps to reproduce (detailed):

      1. Create the following content structure:

      Home
      	Tests (folder)
      

      2. Create a new section called "Test section" and assign it to "Home/Tests";
      3. Create a new editor user e.g. "John Smith";

      Note: by default, the "editor" role only grants content|read permission to the Standard, Media and Restricted sections, meaning editors don't have access to the new "Test section".

      4. Set up the installation in "dev" environment;
      5. Go to the frontend, and try to access "example.com/eng/Tests". It is a restricted area, so you will be re-directed to "example.com/eng/login";
      6. Login as the new editor user. Since editors have no access to content that belong to the "Test section" section, an error will be displayed:

      Access Denied.
      403 Forbidden - AccessDeniedHttpException
      1 linked Exception: AccessDeniedException »
      

      This message is too vague and should be improved.

      Note: with the customer's proposed enhancement, the message is now more accurate:

      User does not have access to 'read' 'content'
      403 Forbidden - AccessDeniedHttpException
      1 linked Exception: UnauthorizedException »
