I have some code thats gets files from a service. If a file is changed i will first update the file and after delete the old versions of this content (do this to save disk space)
When i try to delete old versions i get this error in my logs
EPiServer.Core.AccessDeniedException: Access was denied to content 13893_94956. The required access level was "Delete".
This line fails
How to fix this?
// Will delete previous versions of pdf file
public static void DeletePreviousGenericMediaVersion(ContentReference epiFileRef)
var epiFileVersions = versionRepository.List(epiFileRef);
foreach (var epiFileVersion in epiFileVersions)
// Delete all unpublished file versjons
if (epiFileVersion.Status != VersionStatus.Published)
// Before we delete the content we need to clean up blob data on disk. To do this we need BinaryData ID
var epiFileVersjonContent = Repository.Get(epiFileVersion.ContentLink);
Are you doing this from a scheduled job? Can you add the following before you start deleting:
EPiServer.Security.PrincipalInfo.CurrentPrincipal = EPiServer.Security.PrincipalInfo.CreatePrincipal(some_admin_user_who_has_delete_rights);
