We are on SAP NW 7.3 and trying to provide the WPC page for anonymous users.
Have designed the WPC content, connected to a role and gave the role to anonymous user, but when we go to portal
http://<host>:<port>/irj/portal/anonymous it gives a logon page. To resolve the issue have gone thru all the posts and recommendations but still the same error.
Tried to follow the blog 'Webpage composer Anonymous User access' but in NW 7.3 can find the PCD location 'WebpageComposer', - but in templates we have the WPC Templates and have given the required permissions
Also the security zones are changed.
Has it something to do with the 'Staging Area' folder (Navigating through the role Accesible Area Management -> content Editor), because when we create any new Area/Page(WPC Area/Page) it creates the same in this folder, which is present as a KM Folder. This folder does not allow to set the permissions (Accesible Area Management -> Content Library -> Staging Area -> Details -> Permissions)
Your valuable suggestions would really help me to resolve this issue.
Please Check and Change Authentication Scheme to 'Anonymous' for all WPC iviews.
Also Navigate to Content Administration > Portal Content > Portal Content > Web Page Composer:
a) Container iViews -> WPC Default Containers
b) iView Templates
c) Page Layouts
d) Select the property category Advanced
e) Change the property Authentication Scheme to anonymous
f) Save the changes
Refer to SAP Note 1269191 - Troubleshooting Anonymous Access in NW WPC
Hope it will helps
Got the reply from SAP to perform the below steps and its working fine for us.. just in case any one of you needs this info.
1. Add the "authentication scheme" property to the WPC design time page template: a. Go to "System Administration" ' "Content Model Management" ' "Property Classification" b. Under "Object Type" select "Page" c. Under "Template" select "WPC Design Time Page" d. Under "Available Properties" locate "Authentication Scheme" and add it to the "Selected Properties" 2. Go to the Area Management Role and locate the area and the page that you would like to be available to anonymous users 3. Set End User permissions for "Anonymous" group on the area 4. Publish the page(s) and the area 5. Navigate to "Content Administration". Make sure the "Area Management"role isn't open in some other tab or browser window 6. In the Portal Content Catalog, locate the role which is available to anonymous users and has the WPC area connected to it. 7. Open the role, open the connection 8. For each page under the workset (area): a. Open the page b. For each iview and page under the page, open the iview/page and navigate to its properties: i. Locate the "Authentication Scheme" property and change it to "anonymous" ii. Save the object iii. For pages, open the page and perform the same process for each iview under the page iv. Save
