403 forbidden response for sharepoint links when tried to access via cef browser

New Contributor

The sharepoint links are giving a 403 forbidden error when accessing through cef browser, whereas it is working fine in normal browser. In the fiddler logs, the error in the response is as below/

 

X-MSDAVEXT_Error: 917656; Access+denied.+Before+opening+files+in+this+location%2c+you+must+first+browse+to+the+web+site+and+select+the+option+to+login+automatically.

 

Can anyone help with this issue.

@mchandanavenkatanaga What type of SharePoint links are you trying to access?

 

Are those SharePoint site/pages URL or external sharing / anonymous links? Can you first try login to SharePoint site & then try opening these links?

@ganeshsanap  The link we are trying to access is a organizational share point site. So, when the link is accessed from cef browser, it is NOT redirecting to login page, but giving a 403 response.

@mchandanavenkatanaga Try this:

  1. Open a new window of browser
  2. Open https://www.office.com/ in browser tab & login
  3. Click on App launcher & select SharePoint (login here if browser asks for login): ganeshsanap_0-1660212190384.png
  4. Open new tab in same window & paste the link you are trying to access.
