AEM 6.5.12: Not able to add annotations and comments on a page for a read-only author


Level 2

Hey all,


I am currently on AEM 6.5.12. We are looking into annotations and comments for a specific use case where an author with read-only permissions on a page should be able to add annotations and comments. However, I get an error when I try to add the annotations and comments on a page as a read-only user.

ERROR: Annotation create operation failed. Similar error for comments.

Is this by design? Couldn't find anything in the docs.

Hi @SantoshSai ,

Thanks for your response. However, I don't see my annotations under jcr:content/cq:annotations. Has the location changed between 6.3 and 6.5?

Got the new location. It is stored under the component/cq:annotations.

Yes, that's right - annotations are stored under component / page node (jcr:content/cq:annotations) in the repository.
