Asking Authentication for Image in News Iview

Hello Everybody,

I am using EP 7.0 SP 6 and i have a News Iview which is the standard one provided by SAP and i am using News Authoring Iview for creating new News items and also putting Images for each News. This News Iview is available on external facing portal and all the users of the portal are accessing the entire content as anonymous users. My problem is that if i dont put any image for a News item it appears perfectly for anonymous access on the News Iview. But when i put an image for a News Item then its asks for authentication from the anonymous user who doesnt have a portal user id and need not to logon. I dont understand why it is asking for authentication for the image, a suitable reply with proper solution in this regard would be highly appreciated and rewarded. Awaiting a quick response from the Portal Masters.

Thanks in Advance,

Regards,

Sarabjeet Singh.

    Hello Everybody,

    Further to add is that its not only for Image, portal asks authentication for the detailed content of the News item also i.e., if someone clicks the News Item link without any Image on the News Iview for details, even then it asks for the Authentication. So the real problem is with the Access of News Iview to the anonymous User. How can we set up access to the KM documents for the anonymous user's.?????

      Hi Robert,

      Thanks for your reply. After the upgrade there is no change in the configurations and the link behind the image is also .../irj/go/km/docs/documents/../XYZ.jpg . As you have mentioned in your reply to change the Authentication scheme to anonymous in standard SAP supplied Home role Home > Hidden > URL Access > KM Document iView. i would also like to mention here is that i have a customized Home role and i am not using SAP standard Home role for News, Instead i have copied the News iview and put it in my custom role .
