You have not provided any proper system info or version info for AE, nor any useful details about your script and your projects, so we can't know anything.
We are using AE CC14
AE is running on a server (windows) which I don't know exact specs of.
Our script is trying to make an ajax call to external URL
The flaw is here:
AE is running on a server
Local permissions are different from network permissions. Files created on another machine and merely saved to the server will have a differentr set of permissions than ones natively created there. Conversely, the same privilege escalation issues would be relevant for calling up your URL when you break out of the server's sandbox. Check that stuff.
Wow I had no idea.
That could be the flaw indeed. So if someone worked on a computer with different settings he might have changed the settings?
Well thanks a lot I'll have all files checked.
One more practical question though...
If I open the projects that do not work on my machine all settings seem correct. Simply because my preferences remain as they are. How do I change the local permissions?
I'm not referring to AE, I mean the mundane file permissions, user accounts and security tokens on your operating system. You need to check your domain controller control/ users system control panel and all that stuff and as a minor also review the effective permissions on the folders/ network shares you use to exchange the files.
Ah I see.
I'm going to check it out.
Thank you so much.
