Possible to allow anonymous users?

Hi guys,

Is it possible to allow public users (anonymous users) to search for documents ? (View and download documents).

Any hint of how should I try this ?

I am trying to build an MVP project using Mayan using public documents, and it would be better if anonymous users where able to search and download documents.

Thanks !


I’m wondering the same thing. In some of the release notes (specifically this one: Version 4.2.14) I note this paragraph:

Attempting to exploit this weakness requires a privileged account and is
not possible to enable from a guest or an anonymous account. Visitors to
a Mayan EDMS installation cannot exploit this weakness.

That makes me think this capability might exist, but I can’t find it.

I’m looking for a system basically exactly like Mayan, but I need the ability to make certain documents public, and have some sort of index view for those documents.
