An Access Control rule may limit visibility to records in knowledge search, but does not handle the record count appropriately.

Steps to Reproduce


  1. Open the kb_knowledge read record ACL, and remove the Public role from the Requires role related list.
  2. Replace the script with:
    if(current.category=='Outlook' && !gs.hasRole('admin'))
    answer = 'false';
    answer = 'true';
  3. Log out as Admin and log back in as Joe Employee.
  4. Navigate to Self-Service > Knowledge and search Outlook.
  5. Notice that no results appear, in particular, the page count is hidden.
