Permission Denied in accessing the copied workitem attachment from ProjectB

Arun K Sriramaiah (3.2k12977) | asked Jan 22 '14, 6:49 a.m.
I copied the workitem with an attachment from ProjectA to ProjectB

User1 is member of both ProjectA and ProjectB can access the attachment.

User2 is member of ProjectB is not able to access the attachment it says permission denied.

Arun K Sriramaiah commented Jan 22 '14, 7:12 a.m.

User2 is not able to access the copied WI attachment, he can access the workitem.

Note: if the user2 is member of the ProjectA and Project B, he can acess the copied workitem attachment permission.

If the user2 is having the access to ProjectB and the workitem isĀ  copied to ProjectB from ProjectA with an attachment.

Why the attachment is not accessible even the user2 with highest process role for full permission ?

This is expected behavior. We had similar discussions before and it ends up in doc RFE:

In the new infocenter, you will see the below note which suggests you need the permissions to the source workitem.
Note: To access attachments in a work item that is copied to a different project area, users must have permissions to access the project area that contains the source work item.
