Anonymous access not working for Images library (PublishingImages) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello and thanks for taking your time to look at this.

    I have a publishing website which is extended to anonymous users. The extended site is internet facing site. I have granted anonymous access for extended site. I have an issue providing anonymous access in authoring site level. Sometimes, my authoring site behave like anonymous site once I provide anonymous access. So, I removed anonymous access in authoring site.

    After I removed anonymous access in authoring site, all the images from images library is not working (401 Unauthorized issue) for extended site and its working fine in authoring site.

    Please help me what I did wrong?

    Is any special permission needed to access Images library as anonymous user?

    Appreciate if you provide detailed information 

    Thanks!

  • Check the permission settings of the image library. If it is broken or not.

    Thanks

  • It is not broken, inherited site permission

  • Hi, Arun,

    First I want to confirm some information about your environment.

    1. You extend a web application for internet facing and enabled anonymous access for the extended zone and default zone. Everything works fine for here.

    2. Then you removed anonymous access in default zone. Anonymous users still can access the extended zone properly.

    3. Only one image library cannot be accessed with error message 401

    Have you checked the site permission settings? As you mentioned the library inherits the permission. Try with turning off versioning. 

    Make sure you did not activate the "Limited-access user permission lockdown mode" feature in site collection features.

    Any detailed information about your issue will be helpful.

    Best Regards

    Jerry

  • Hi Jerry,

    Thanks for your reply

    1. Yes correct

    2. Yes correct

    3. Yes only Images library cannot be accessed with error message 401 (Note: all images are deployed from .Net SharePoint 2013 solution with Type="GhostableInLibrary", ReplaceContent="TRUE", Level="Published")

    I have turned off versioning and deactivated "Limited-access user permission lockdown mode" feature but no use

  • Hi, Arun,

    Would you like to try with OOB image library and upload some sample images manually for testing? Check if users can see the image via anonymous access. And please have a check on your ULS logs for clues. 

    Best Regards
