Symptoms

A navigation model has been set up with links to external pages, in the following way:

<contents>
<url factoryClass="oracle.webcenter.portalframework.sitestructure.rc.LinkResourceFactory" id="newlink3" url="https://www.mywebsite.com">
<attributes resourceBundle="oracle.webcenter.webcenterapp.resource.NavigationLibraryBundle">
<attribute attributeId="Title" value="This is my website"/>
<attribute attributeId="Redirect" isKey="false" value="true"/>
<attribute attributeId="Target" isKey="false" value="_blank"/>
</attributes>
<parameters/>
</url>
...
</contents>


Members of the administrators group can click through successfully.  However, authenticated users see 'You do not have access' (Unauthorised.jspx).
