Access issue for etc in AEM 6.4

Parusharam 15-03-2019

Hi, Is it mandatory to give access to everyone group to the /etc/designs explicitly in AEM 6.4? We have compressed clientLibs under etc/designs and they are not loading in publishers without giving access to everyone group in /etc.

That is called as "anonymous"/unauthenticated access to content. There is a user with the name "anonymous" in publish server to whom you need to assign appropriate read permissions either on the user itself or via its associated group which is 'everyone' in this case.

Anonymous access is required for /content & /etc paths for the app to work. Make sure to limit down the read access to specific paths.

It is the same behavior for all AEM versions.

If it works fine w/o providing read access then you may check "sling authentication service" configurations under "/system/console/configMgr" to validate that you have "-/etc/<something>" 

minus sign is to allow anonymous access

plus sign is to enforce to authentication

With what user did you try to access the content? That user should have appropriate read permissions (assigned to the user directly or via its group) to access the content.

Please provide more information on what did you access, what permissions did you provide in case you can't figure it out.
