Basically, I have a SharePoint Foundation site I'm building out with lots of lists and libraries being related with lookup columns and metadata. After getting everything setup and all my items associated with the proper metadata, I created a web part page. On this page, I put each of my associated lists/libraries with special views to optimize screen usage. Lastly, I connected them all with web part connections - they all are filtered by the main web part. The filter works wonderfully, and I can browse to it with an authenticated user, but anonymous users get a Windows prompt every time.
- On the web app, I have no policy set for Anonymous Users, and Anonymous Access ie enabled
- On the Site Collection, Anonymous Users allowed to see the "Entire Web Site"
- On the Site Pages library, Anonymous Users have the "View Items" permission
- On every page, list, and library in the site, Anonymous users have access and can see data except my one page with web part connections
- In the Site Pages library, Anonymous Users can see the page shown as a file
- If I remove all web part connections, then the Anonymous User no longer gets prompted and can see the page
Here is the version of the page without web part connections:http://www.cospug.com/SitePages/test2.aspx
(cluttered with all data due to no filtering)
That page is built the same way as this page except that this one has web part connections:http://www.cospug.com/SitePages/Involvement.aspx
(if you could see it, you'd see it filtering by the Presenter on all web parts)
Was it like this in 2007, is it a bug, is it by design, and does anyone know a workaround?Read more...
