No permission to access own resource


#1

Hi,

I just installed the 5.0.0 version and testing it. When i try to delete my account, it gives the following error

You are currently logged in as https://student3.solid.open.ac.uk/profile/card#me , but do not have permission to access https://student3.solid.open.ac.uk/account/delete/ .

Anyone came across this error? Why am i not allowed to access my own resource?

Same on my side, I’m testing a local development App, got:

You are currently logged in as https://linonetwo.solidweb.org/profile/card#me,\n but do not have permission to access https://linonetwo.solidweb.org/private/bbb.ttl

Look at https://github.com/solid/node-solid-server#upgrading-from-version-4

starting from version 5, third-party apps are untrusted by default. To trust a third-party app, before you can log in to it, you first need to go to your profile at example.com/profile/card#me (important to include the ‘#me’ there), and then hover over the ‘card’ header to reveal the context menu. From there, select the ‘A’ symbol to go to your trusted applications pane, where you can whitelist third-party apps before using them. See also solid/node-solid-server/issues/1142 about streamlining this UX flow.
