As an authenticated user, I've created a node. The Tasks menu is completely absent. If I try to access it via node/476/edit, I see "Access Denied".

The Task menu (edit, view, revisions) is seen by the Administrator but Authenticated users. How can I bedug this further?

However, I have permission set for this Content Type as follows below. I've included another Node TYpe called Event as well. enter image description here enter image description here

I even tried looking into the table node_type to see if anything was off

       type: user_posted_content
       name: User Posted Content
       base: node_content
     module: node
description: Postings by users 
  has_title: 1
title_label: Title
     custom: 1
   modified: 1
     locked: 0
   disabled: 0
  orig_type: user_posted_content

Other Modules I previously had tried both Content Access (content_access) and Node view permissions (node_view_permissions) but ended up deactivating both.

Digging deeper It appears I may have some residual from one of those modules.

MariaDB [s7data]> select * from node_access where nid = 476;
| nid | gid | realm | grant_view | grant_update | grant_delete |
| 476 |   0 | all   |          1 |            0 |            0 |

    Do you have any other permissions or access modules in place, like Nodeaccess or Taxonomy Access Control? Oct 21, 2015 at 13:26
  • I've updated my answer. Yes, Node view permissions (node_view_permissions) and Content Access (content_access) were installed. Comment upvote.

  • You might want to completely uninstall these modules and rebuild permissions /admin/reports/status/rebuild Also, another question: is auth user able to edit other content-types, or is this a global problem? Oct 21, 2015 at 13:37
  • Answer updated. Yes. It's system wide and I've tried to rebuild permissions.

    Did you uninstall the modules? That should hopefully remove their data. If not, you might have to delete their data manually. Another option would be to install the NodeAccess module, then remove any restrictions you added previously from the Nodeaccess config page, save, and then uninstall module. Oct 21, 2015 at 13:51

You don't need to restore your database, you only need to enable your nodeaccess module in your modules page and it should restore on its own and you will have access to all stored data. Then go to nodeaccess config, undo all the restrictions, save, then go back to modules page and uninstall nodeaccess. And rebuild permissions. Hopefully that'd do the trick!
