I just converted our test system to run DSpace 1.6 (we run DSpace 1.5.2 in production), and I noticed something different about logins. I am not sure if this is a change in functionality or if I have something set incorrectly.
In previous versions of DSpace, if one attempted to access a restricted resource, they would be presented with a login screen. Once they logged in, they would be immediately redirected to the restricted resource.
What is happening in my DSpace 1.6 instance is that I attempt to access a restricted resource, I log in, but then I am thrown into my MyDSpace page. Is there a setting that I need to set to get the function that I used to have or is this the way it now works?
