Created redmine issue from this bug

Comment 3 David Davis 2017-03-07 18:23:13 UTC
I was not able to reproduce this error on 6.2.8 using the reproduce steps. Using the steps listed, I could view the subscriptions page fine with the test user. However, when I attempted to visit the subscriptions page with a user that did not have subs view permission, I encountered the error. It looks like there is an open issue around rendering the 403 page:

Comment 5 David Davis 2017-03-08 14:30:36 UTC
I was able to reproduce this finally. It's a bit different BZ #1333219. The key is you must NOT have a manifest imported. The error occurs because the readonly user is redirected to edit manifests if there are no subscriptions:

And of course they don't have edit permissions so you hit a 403. What we probably want to do is to only transition to manifest import if the user has the 'import_manifest' permission.

Comment 8 Satellite Program 2017-03-09 13:16:11 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue has been resolved.

Comment 9 David Davis 2017-03-09 14:03:25 UTC
Upstream PR:

Very small fix. Minimal impact. I recommend we get this into next 6.2 z-stream.

Comment 10 Ashish Humbe 2017-03-10 07:08:24 UTC
Thank you David !

Comment 11 David Davis 2017-04-03 11:57:57 UTC
QE: Note comment #5. To recap, steps to reproduce:

0. On a system or in a org with NO MANIFEST
1. Create a user with view only role
2. Login as the user and go to the subscriptions page

Actual results:

Will get error on screen -- "We're sorry, but something went wrong."

Expected results:

User should be able to see subscription page

Verified in satellite-6.2.10-2.0.el7sat.noarch

Working fine for standard non-admin user with only the Viewer role.
