Users cannot access term reference fields (edit or view) even if they are public. Other field types that I have tried seem to work correctly (entity reference, long text). The problem seems to persist regardless of the type of widget that I am using which makes me believe that it is problem in Field permissions.

The drupal site has an "editor" role that should have permission to edit and view two fields using term reference. One field is called "concepts" and the other "audience". The "Administrator editing the node.jpg" figure shows the browser then an administrator is editing the node. The "permissions.jpg" file shows the permissions of one of these two fields. The "Editor editing the node.jpg" file shows the editor trying to change the node. Notice that the "audience" and "concepts" fields are missing when the editor tried to edit them.

I searched for similar bugs reported and even though I saw others related with access permissions I did not see one related with term reference fields.

Do you have the same issue if you use an other widget ? Select list for example ?

I have the exact same issue. Versions: Drupal core 7.33, Field permissions 7.x-1.0-beta2.
Any progress on this issue, or maybe something i can test?

Issue summary: View changes

I had this problem as well, and the solution was not what I expected.
I'd also installed the Taxonomy Access Control module, and it has a setting "Add Tag" which if disabled on the first row in the settings page (labelled "default") then it removes the ability to edit/view any term fields for that role.../

#3 Thanks for the fix.

Version: 7.x-1.0-beta2 » 7.x-1.x-dev

If this should be fixed in this module, it would first be in the -dev branch.
Or should the fix be made in the TAC module (Taxonomy Access Control)?

Btw; Is it only happening with TAC or also with TAC_lite?

I'm having this issue with Drupal 7.43, Field Permissions 7.x-1.0-beta2. I don't have Taxonomy Access Control or TAC_lite installed so that won't fix for me. Field Permissions is the only permissions module I have installed.
