I created a subsubweb, Vicki/Work/Tambora and set permissions to
#Set DENYWEBVIEW =
Set ALLOWWEBVIEW = Main.VickiBrown, Main.RichMorin, Main.TamboraSystems
#Set DENYWEBCHANGE =
Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE = Main.VickiBrown, Main.RichMorin
#Set DENYWEBRENAME =
#Set ALLOWWEBRENAME = Main.VickiBrown

However, when I logged in as user TamboraSystems, Foswiki claimed
Action "VIEW": access not allowed on web by user TamboraSystems.

When I moved the Work web up one level (out of the Vicki web), the problem disappeared. Tambora is still a subweb, but only one level deep.

That is, Vicki/Work/Tambora is apparently not recognizing the ALLOWWEBVIEW setting properly.

However, Work/Tambora is recognizing ALLOWWEBVIEW.

No other changes were made; all I did was move the parent web up one directory level.

I wonder if intermediate webs require view access in order to see the containing webs. Or if there is a FINAL setting somewhere along the way.

Could you please check the ALLOWWEBVIEW (and DENY*) settings of the Vicki and work webs, as well as any settings of "FINALPREFERENCES" in the parent webs.

No feedback was provided. Closing due to lack of actions.
