Users cannot see their own drafts in the Web Content list


  1. Create a user and asign a role with permissions to create web contents. This role must not be Administrator or Content Reviewer.
  2. Create a web content and save it as draft.
  3. Check that it is not in the web content list.

  • This is not considered a bug and it is the expected behavior:
    • For regular users, Web Content admin section filters, by default, by "Approved" web contents, so only approved web contents will be listed.
    • For Administrator users or Content Reviewer users, this section filters, by default, by "Any" web content, so it shows any type of them.
  • Hence there are two possible workarounds for regular users to see their own draft web contents on the list:
    • Change the filter manually to show only "Draft" web contents or "Any" of them.
    • Assign them the role "Portal Content Reviewer". They will be able to see "Any" content by default, as commented above.

Additional Information

  • This case can apply to status other than Approved (like Scheduled).
