Hello everyone,


I have found an issue (or I have missed something) where the workflow of external invite doesn't work. The only modifications I have made are :

- enabled feed notifier

- change login for external users to the email property


I will try to describe the steps to reproduce it.


- External users are invited to join Alfresco by an internal user to a site

- This user is now manager of his own site

- He invites some external users

- Those new external users receive the email site invitation

- When they click on the accept link,

            + error in the ui 'Alfresco is running without Share Services' connected as a guest, they can't authenticate to Alfresco Share if they don't use the email link but the login page

            + error in alfresco.log

ERROR [org.springframework.extensions.webscripts.AbstractRuntime] [http-nio-8080-exec-26] Exception from executeScript - redirecting to status template error [...] access denied


I don't know if this behavior is excepted or not. It works fine when the manager is an 'internal' user.


Thank you for your help.
