Description

Reference qualifier on a variable for a record producer in CMS calling a script include does not work for non-logged in users.
When a non-logged in user clicks on a reference field that contains this reference qualifier, it returns with a blank pop-up page.
If the same reference qualifier is used on a normal form field, it works properly.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Navigate to a catalog item that is already present on OOB /ess site (for example, Something Broken)
  2. Make this catalog item public by adding the public role on the Roles field
  3. Open up the variable of this catalog item named caller_id and put the public role to Read roles, Write roles, and Create roles
  4. Now this variable is referencing sys_user, so create a table read ACL on sys_user to allow public user access
  5. Navigate to sys_public.list and add in the pages: sys_user and sys_user_list (so public users can access those pages)
  6. Create a script include to be used for an advanced ref qual on this variable. The script include can have one function that returns gs.log()
  7. On the variable advanced ref qual, call this script include Javascript: new MySI().myFoo();
  8. While not logged in, navigate to /ess and to that record producer
  9. If everything is done/set up correctly at to this point, as a non-logged in user you should be able to access the record producer on ess and see the reference variable
  10. Click on the reference variable: a blank pop-up page appears

  11. Follow these same steps as a logged-in user and note that it works as expected

*Important: This only happens for a variable on a record producer for CMS. If the same ref qual is used on a normal reference form field, it works for non-logged in users and no errors occur.

Workaround

  1. Adding a Property glide.script.ccsi.ispublic. This property changes the visibility of client-callable script includes by making them all public or private. Configure the property as follows:
    • Name: glide.script.ccsi.ispublic
    • Type: true|false
    • Value: false
  2. Add the following method to the script include FormStateAjax:
isPublic: function() {
   return true;
  },
