Here is the problem when calling User.WS getUser(),


('Could not get users for course', '_440370_1')

Server raised fault: '[WSFW004]<b>Access Denied</b><br>Access to this resource is prohibited. (system.user.VIEW)'


We have given this Web Service requestor the following permissions in system role, and he enrolled in course '_440370_1'

Course/Organization Control Panel (Users and Groups) > Users

Administrator Panel (Users) > Users

Administrator Panel (Users) > Users > Edit > View Course Enrollments


Administrator Panel (Users) > Users > Search, Not Blank

Administrator Panel (Users) > Users > Edit > View Organization Enrollments

User management by Web Services


Even more strange, it is a hit and miss situation. Sometimes, the program runs without problem, sometimes, it throws the error. We have multiple frontend servers sit behind the load balancer and we are managing hosted.
