I have a file attachment field defined in a content type I have under Workbench moderation. The file field stores the attachment in the private files folder.
When I create a node for that content type and view it in Draft mode I get a 403 access denied if I try to download the file attachment with any role other than admin. If I publish the node I can download the file fine. Revert it back to Draft and I'm back to the 403 access denied.
I've tried enabling “Bypass moderation restrictions” for a role but that does not work around this error.
I really need a solution/workaround for this issue since I have a non-admin role that needs to be able review the node and the file attachment posted by users before they are published. I'm sure this is a fairly common scenario but I haven't been able to find any posts with a similar issue.
