Allowing a limited user the correct privileges to view versions.

Avatar

Level 1

I've limited a user in AEM 6.0 to be able to view and edit pages but they are not allowed to activate.

In the process I seem to have turned off the ability for that user to view versions of pages. I need to know which checkbox needs to be ticked to allow them to view versions.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Technically user should have write permissions on '/jcr:system/jcr:versionStorage'.

As the jcr:system & jcr:versionStorage are protected, the ACL's cannot be added explicitly on these nodes. The only way is to provide a user the read/write permissions at root(/) level which gives them read/write permissions on /jcr:system also.

    Go to http://<host>:<port>/crx/explorer/index.jsp
    Go to Content Explorer
    Add an ACE to your jcr:system node that allows jcr:versionMangement to the given author user.
    Save the ACE
    Login with the author user & verify.
