Editor Privilege level not working as expected

Brad Chapman asked on April 1, 2016 07:53

Hi all I have a bizarre issue with the 'Editor' privilege level. I have imported users into 2 environments and assigned some as editor privilege manually via the users app. In one environment the user can get to Admin, in the other environment they cannot. They receive a 403 error. It's appears like 'Editor' is behaving like 'None'. If I set the user to 'Global Administrator' they can access the Admin fine. The 2 environment should be identical that I can tell - both recently updated to 8.1.8.

Has anyone encountered this before?

Hi Dawid Yes, all affected users have been imported from our AD and assigned to the site. I have tried manually unassigning the site, then re-assign to see if this fixes the problem for a single user but it did not work.

[edit] I've ended up deleting the role they were using by default and have cloned an existing editor role and culled it's permissions to a point of failure. May have been a module access issue with the original role.

Hello Brad,

Did you assign the user to the site that you want to login?
