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!
The issue is now registered as a bug.

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
