I installed a vanilla Sitecore instance and revoked read access to the home page and published it. When I accessed the page I got "document not found" instead of access denied.

  • Could you provide the steps that you've done for restricting the read access for home page. And which version of Sitecore do you use? Dec 18, 2017 at 11:52
  • I am using 8.2.5 and the steps were done correctly but Sitecore said that it's a bug

  • According to Sitecore, the source of the issue is "ItemResolver doesn't change HttpRequestArgs.PermissionDenied when it is needed" The resolution includes a dll and a config file.
