Symptoms

When user logs on to the portal 8.4 or when navigating to some page links they will get either of the following errors:

"You do not have Access to this page, Use Maintain Security to add access to this page." or " You are not authorized to access this component (40,20) "

They may also see Portal folders that they are not authorized to see. Or some menus reappear when they have not been authorized and as they are navigating.

Also when giving access to application home pages the user gets the error "You are not authorized" even though the permission list has the correct menu & page access.
