On my Main page, there are several links to the different sub-pages, I have some groups each of them can only access one of the links. I want to grant the Group "SocialCommittee" the permission only on "*.SocialCommittee*" pages and view only on Main. I tried 2 ways,

1st is through the ACL -

[{ALLOW view SocialCommittee}]
, but still couldnot view the "*.SocialCommittee*" pages when I logged on the main page as any one of the "SocialCommittee"; If I set ACL as
[{ALLOW view SocialCommittee, GautamKumra}]
, and logged in Main page as "GautamKumra", I could see the "*.SocialCommittee*" pages.

2nd is through the Policy file -

If I comment out all the settings for Role "Authenticated" or even remove the whole section for "Authenticated", and grant some permission to the Wiki group "SocialCommittee" I just created in the jspwiki.policy, and reboot the Wiki, after I login the Main page as any one of "SocialCommittee", I get the "Forbidden page", I cannot view any page, even the Main. If I just grant the "edit, rename" on "*.Main" to "Authenticated", no change to the group "SocialCommittee". After I login the Main page as any one of "SocialCommittee", I can "view&edit" the Main page, but get the "Forbidden page" on any other pages.

Thank you !
