episerver mvc - restrict block access page cant be accessed - biggest issue


Hi everybody ,  ( I feel it is biggest issue in episerver mvc template why it was not taken care and why no body even respond to this question)

did any one of u face the below issue with alloy mvc site or any custom Episerver cms site developed based on mvc template ? 
if u restrict a block on a page then the page it self is not visible. for example i restricted "news list" block on alloy-track page by deleting everyone group from it. but note that "Alloy-track page is having access to everybody. so expected functionality is user should see "Alloy-track" page but news list block should not visible. (this is default behaviour in Alloy - webforms ). 
But actual behaviour is it is redirecting to login page !!! 
note : I am facing same problem in my custom Episerver mvc site. can any body help me how to resolve this issue. thanks in advance

Did step in to the exact same issue today. Have tried everything but seams impossible to do any kind of access check to the BlockDatas inside a content area. Seams like the ACL is hidden behind great walls.

Hi Henrik ,

Thank you so much for your reply . I am glad that finally i got a reply for my continuous posts on the same problem. could you please give me your opinion/advice on how to deal with it. Because this issue is a show stopper in our site implementation.

@nani I agree with your post in the "feature requests" forum that it's probably time for a dedicated MVC forum. 

Still please understand the forums are mostly community driven and probably not monitored 24/7 by EPiServer employees. Duplicate posts will likely be ignored as spam. In case of a critical bug like you found, file a bug report or try live support chat (or tweet @episerver directly, they're usually quite responsive).

Hope your problem is fixed soon!
