It's easiest to describe this by documenting the steps to reproduce. This involves ESA, but I haven't checked whether it happens with non-public documents viewed using other registries.

After logging into ESA, click My Submissions (or View Submissions if logged in as a moderator), then click to view any one of the listed documents. Note that these are all documents that are not publicly readable, but should be readable by the logged-in user. The Data Set Citation section near the top of the document contains a link that refers to the document itself, e.g.:

Clicking on the link produces an error:

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

User public does not have permission to read the document with the docid esa.65.3

The underlying URL for the example above is:

Perhaps the issue is the missing session variable?

fix in 1.9.2

Added the session Id to the read url and it works.

#3 Updated by Jim Regetz over 12 years ago

Yep, the permissions problem is fixed. However, now when clicking the link, the frame that contains the doc is replaced with a frame containing both the ESA header (which therefore appears twice on the page) and doc.

I changed the link results to display in the top window. This displays a straight read action for the document, which does not have the esa review pane on the side.
