Allowing any user to open any case overview



What I'm trying to accomplish is allowing any user to access the case overview of any process, even when he didn't participate in it.

I found this documentation: and this github that apparently does exactly what I need. However when I followed the steps provided it didn't work and it still said 403 Forbidden.

This are the steps I did:

  1. Downloaded this github unzip and executed "mvn clean package". This generated a "target" folder and inside multiple folders and a page-authorization-rules-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar which I copied "C:\Bonita\BonitaCommunity-7.11.2\server\webapps\bonita\WEB-INF\lib".

  2. Next, using the setup tool inside I did setup.bat pull and inside platform_conf/current/tenants/1/tenant_engine I updated bonita-tenants-custom.xml adding this at the end:


  1. After that, at the same location I updated adding:

Finally I pushed the config with setup.bat push (with no errors) and restarted the server.

To test the changes I added a new user to the "User" profile and tried to access a case overview but I got the 403 Forbidden. If I try the same url with an Admin or a user who had a task in that case it works as it should.

I would appreciate any help. I'm using default tomcat version 7.11.2

Bonita has its own Automated Case Overview page. You can use that page as external Page to show case data to all Users.
You might need to modify a few parameters but that should not be a challenge.
