Hi All,

I am facing below issue while executing workflows, issue is  " javax.jcr.AccessDeniedException: OakAccess0000: Access denied";

Hey @Venkatesha,

At first view, it seems that it is a permission issue. However, it would be great if you could explain your case what you are trying to do. Here are a few questions:

  1. Are you running this workflow with non-admin user?. If yes, Did you verify the permissions of that user in different jcr paths (/etc/notifications etc) ?.
  2. What are the steps you have in this workflow?. And Did you apply any ACL at workflow level for any user/group?.

To add to Jitendra's question, at which step are you seeing this error ? is it at the beginning or middle of the workflow on a particular step ?

Give as much as info you can so that we can try to solve the same.

Participant user/group might not have sufficient permissions on this activity.

Please check and also better provide more details of activity/task.

Thanks to all.

Resolved issue,i gave all permissions same as adminstrator group.

Issue is:

   changed code "resourceresolverfactory.getAdmistrativeResourceResolver(null)-->adminsession" to

                        "final HashMap<String, Object> authInfo = new HashMap<String, Object>();
                         authInfo.put(ResourceResolverFactory.SUBSERVICE, "Workflow-service");
                        resourceResolver = resourceResolverFactory.getServiceResourceResolver(authInfo); "

   so the authinfor of "workflow-service" has not same access as adminsession ,then  configured admistrator group to "Workflow-service.

   It is working fine after change the permissions.

 

Thanks to all.

Giving the same permissions as the administrator group seems like a workaround, and not the best way to proceed, as admin permissions should be used with care. 

Ideally you would identify exactly what is being updated/accessed and just give sufficient permissions to perform the action/task.

Hi 

In Support of Opkar Gills's post, giving administrator group permission is a workaround (for security reasons). We should identify the access type and should provide permission is accordance.

"org.apache.jackrabbit.vault.packaging.PackageException: javax.jcr.AccessDeniedException: Access denied."

I'm receiving same error, it install packages; provide permissions according to the manual "work with packages"

 

To grant users the right to create, modify, upload, and install packages, you must give them the appropriate permissions at the following locations:

  • /etc/packages (full rights excluding delete)
  • the node that contains the package content (/content/myProyect and /apps/myProyect)
