"About this Space" just Refreshes the Page and doesn't Display the Space Information if you are Not a Member of the Space (Doc ID 1347136.1)

When selecting "About this Space" on a Space that you are not a member of, the Page just refreshes and doesn't displays the Space information.


Either it should provide information about the Space to determine if you want to join.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Created the following users:

  2. Sign in to Spaces as testuser1 and crated the following Group Spaces with the indicated Access Level:

    • GS_Public
      Public: Anyone can visit this Space.

    • GS_Private
      Private: People must be invited to join this Space. The Space will appear in search results and in the list of available Spaces.

    • GS_Hidden
      Hidden: People must be invited to join this Space.The Space will not appear in search results or in the list of available Spaces.

  3. Sign In to Spaces as testuser2 and go to Spaces -> Browse Spaces. The user is able to see only the following Group Spaces as expected:

    • GS_Public
    • GS_Private

  4. Right Click GS_Public and select:
    About -> About this Space

    This shows the space information as expected as this is a Public Space.

  5. Right Click GS_Private and select:
    About -> About this Space

    This only refreshes the page and doesn't provide the Space information.
    This is unexpected. If there is a link to "About this Space" it is expected to see the Space information.
