Access denied for full controll users at feauture activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • When a full control user (also farm admins) tries to activate this feature:

    Hide the View All Site Content link

    Removes (hides) the View All Site Content from the quick link navigation and adds a View All Site Content link to the Site Action menu. The new Site Action link is only visible to users having the AddAndCustomizePages right.

    He will get a active denied and wont be able to activate the feature. If i look at the log file all i can find is this:

    05/27/2010 10:58:45.06  w3wp.exe (0x01AC)                        0x05D4                                1463                           8l41 High     assertPermissionMask was called, but permissions haven't been computed yet.

    The activation of this feature has always worked, but stopped suddenly. Activating another feature is no problem. As far as i know there is nothing changed in our farm or updated.

    Does anyone has a idea what this can be or how we can get more detailed logs.

  • Hi Nukkel,

    Try to check again permission of user who is activating this feature. And what message its showing after activating feature? Is it showing Access Denied error/page?

    and can you show your 'FeatureActivated' method? so it would be easy to debug your code and problem.

  • Hi,

    Yes it shows the Access Denied error/page after i click on activate. The permission of the users who get this is full control. All site owners with full control have this problem on there page. They can do everything else what needs full control normally. Also the site admins can't activate this feature.

    This is the feature whe are using:

    But the last version of this feature is from januari and nobody else is complaining about it on the site and it has worked for us in the past i think the problem has something to do with our own SharePoint environment and not with this webpart.
