Novell Vibe OnPrem 3.1


If you only have Visitor level access to a folder, i.e. you are only allowed to view entries in that folder then the right to add personal tags to an entry are denied. If you try and add a personal tag to an entry, the following error is shown:

"You do not have rights to add or delete tags for this entry."


If you are unable to add a personal tag to an entry as a Visitor you may be affected by this bug. Please check and make sure that the user you are logged in as has the Visitor role (or Read entry right) in that folder.

A patch is available to correct this problem for Novell Vibe OnPrem 3.1. Please contact Novell Technical Support with reference to this TID and Defect ID 704741 and request the patch for your Vibe OnPrem 3.1 site.
