Correct behaviour of DataFactory.GetChildren(PageReference)

Member since: 2006
 
Hi all, According to the SDK, the DataFactory.GetChildren(PageReference) method should return 'Children of pageLink that the user has at least Read access to.' However, it actually returns all child pages, even unpublished pages and pages that the user don't have read access to. What is the correct behaviour of this method? Returning all child pages or returning those that the current user can read (SDK should be updated if this is the case)? Thanks, Christoffer

    GetChildren() will NOT filter result on access * EPiServer lists will filter for you * Use FilerAccess or FilterForVisitor to filter when binding to asp lists. PageDataCollection pages = GetChildren(PageReference.StartPage); EPiServer.Filters.FilterAccess access = new EPiServer.Filters.FilterAccess(); access.Filter(pages); repeater.DataSource = pages; repeater.DataBind();

    Thank you for the report Christoffer. The SDK does not seem to have been updated for the new behaviour and I have added a bug report for this.

    Thank you for the clarification! FilterForVisitor seems like a convenient way to do this. Thanks, Christoffer

    It returns all pages, by you can use the FilterForVisitor filter to get only the pages that are visible to "Everyone" users.

    "It returns all pages, by you can use the FilterForVisitor filter to get only the pages that are visible to "Everyone" users."
    I don't think that's accurate, it checks if the user has read access. Everyone role or not has nothing to do with it. I hope.
