      Edit Online action performed by a non-member private site user who has permission on the document, doesn’t save the changes.
      This issue was tested with a user with “Collaboration” permission on the content.
      “Public” site doesn’t have any issue. Document opened by edit online can successfully save the changes.

      Steps to reproduce:

      1) Start Alfresco Enterprise v5.0.3.7
      2) Login to Share as admin user and create user “user1” or enable sample user “mjackson"
      3) Create a “private” site for example “testsiteprivate”
      4) Upload a Microsoft Office document to document library of this site (testOnlineEdit.docx)
      5) Use Manage Permissions on document to grant Collaborator permission to “user1” (screenshot 01_alf5037_managePermissions.jpg)
      6) From document details page copy the "Copy this link to share the current page" link (screenshot 02_alf5037_copyShareLink.jpg)
      7) Logout
      8) Login as “user1”
      9) Paste link from step 6
      10) Click Edit Online (screenshot 03_alf5037_nonMemberUserEditOnline.jpg)
      11) Edit document in Microsoft Office (Word), save and close Office. (screenshot 04_alf5037_editDocInOffice.jpg)
      12) Back in Share refresh the document details page in order to get the updated preview.

      Expected behaviour: The document preview displays updated document.

      Observed Behaviour: The document is unmodified.

      Analysis to date:

      • Alfresco versions 5.0.2, 5.0.3
      • Windows 10 with Office 2016

      Alfresco version 5.1.1 has a different behaviour:

      • Copy of link to share the page (step 9) in version 5.1.1 doesn’t load the page and it displays message “Something’s wrong with this page…” (screenshot: alf511_sharelinkFormPrivateSite.jpg)
