      Description

      In XMLUI (but not JSPUI), the request-a-copy form includes the message "Users of the system, can login to view this document" + a login link even when the authorisation policies allow only admins to access the file at that time. This has the potential to confuse or frustrate users, who may log in / create an account but then still not be able to access the file.

      The message should either not be shown at all (like in JSPUI), or it should be shown only when a currently valid, not-just-admin policy exists. The wording should probably also be modified in that case to indicate that access may be available to certain groups only.
