Access denied when using breadcrumb RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am working on a Sharepoint 2010 site where I'm using Claims based authentication. My user can log into Sharepoint just fine, but when the user clicks on the top level link in the breadcrumb trail, it takes me to an 'Access Denied' page. I get the same 'Access Denied' page when I type in the url that the top level link in the breadcrumb trail links to. That url is:

    mysite.mydomain:9980/

    When you first log into the site, your url is this:

    mysite.mydomain:9980/SitePages/Home.aspx

    The Home.aspx page has Limited Access and Restricted Read access for all authenticated users. I'm not really sure which page is getting forwarded to when using the top level link in the breadcrumb trail (mysite.mydomain:9980).

    Can anyone please point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    -StephenS

  • You will need to grant users Read Only access to the portal's root site. If the root site has sensitive information or unique permissions then you will at least need to grant Read Only access to the Site Pages library.

    Limited Access and Restricted Read access for all authenticated users means that they have access somewhere else on the site but not for that particular page.
