Description Sayli Karmarkar 2009-04-02 17:59:03 EDT
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a user. Don't give any special permission or role. Just the default user creation.  
2. Login as user
3. Click on configuration tab
Actual results:
Permission Error.

You do not have the appropriate permission set to access the requested page. You may have reached this error page in one of several ways:

   1. You are using Konqueror 3.0, which does not handle form variables properly in all cases. Continuing to use Konqueror 3.0 will have unexpected results. If you are using Konqueror 3.0, please use another browser. 

Expected results:
No such error.

Verified. Cannot see configuration tab with default permissions, After adding configuration admin role, con figuration tab is seen and is accessible.
Comment 5 John Sefler 2009-08-26 17:47:29 EDT
Verified on staged (Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20090724.0) with updates from Aug 20, 2009

Verified that a newly created "normal user" (without "Configuration Administrator") cannot see the "Configuration" tab and that if the https://<sat>/rhn/configuration/Overview.do url is loaded, then the "Permission Error" message is displayed.  When the "Configuration Administrator" role is assigned to the user, then access to the "Configuration" tab is a success.
