No permission for DocType after bench update

Hi All,

I did a ‘bench update’ for my ERPNext instance and I am getting the message ‘No permission for DocType’ for some doc types. For example, I tried creating a Payment entry and when Party Type Customer or Supplier is selected I am getting the message No permission for DocType.

I am on ERPNext: v13.14.0 (version-13) and Frappe Framework: v13.14.0 (version-13)

This user had the permissions before and no changes to the user permissions. All I did was a bench update.

Following is the info I am seeing in the browser.

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (FORBIDDEN) request.js:418 Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/", line 68, in application response = frappe.api.handle() File "/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/", line 55, in handle return frappe.handler.handle() File "/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/", line 31, in handle data = execute_cmd(cmd) File "/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/", line 67, in execute_cmd return, **frappe.form_dict) File "/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/", line 1207, in call return fn(*args, **newargs) File "/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/", line 86, in get_value frappe.throw(_("No permission for {0}").format(doctype), frappe.PermissionError) File "/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/", line 438, in throw msgprint(msg, raise_exception=exc, title=title, indicator='red', is_minimizable=is_minimizable, wide=wide, as_list=as_list) File "/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/", line 417, in msgprint _raise_exception() File "/home/frappe/frappe-bench/apps/frappe/frappe/", line 371, in _raise_exception raise raise_exception(msg) frappe.exceptions.PermissionError: No permission for DocType

The HTTP 403 Forbidden message above is for following endpoint.

As a solution I tried bench reset-perms but the issue still remains.

Please help.

I’m also experiencing the same issue. I believe its a bug that came with updating to v13.14.0.

I guess so, tried many ways and no luck. Anyone?

I was able to fix the issue by downgrading to v13.13.0. Following are the steps I followed.

  1. Moved both frappe and erpnext apps to v13.13.0 tag
    cd frappe-bench/apps/frappe
    git fetch --all --tags --prune
    git checkout tags/v13.13.0
    cd frappe-bench/apps/erpnext
    git fetch --all --tags --prune
    git checkout tags/v13.13.0

  2. cd ../..
    bench build

  3. Restarted all services
    sudo supervisorctl restart all

Hope this helps anyone who has the issue.


v13.14 - Seeing No Permission on Doctype (specifically for payment entry - when trying to select Party-Type - Supplier or Customer in drop-down list).Strangely same user is able to select supplier for posting purchase invoice and customer for posting sales invoice…they have permission for Supplier and Customer - I double checked numerous times. So strange - permission error for Supplier or Customer - seems specific to Payment Entry - and only change is the version update.

Our Payment Entry doctype does not have any linked documents in section below. We have not modified it - Will appreciate it if someone can check if their payment entry doctype has linked documents below? (under customization - doctype - payment entry). Appreciate your help.

My advice is to downgrade to 13.13 for now. I did and it worked.

New update just pushed - 13.14.1 - will test it out first.

v13.14.1 - issue seems fixed - based on my initial test. actual user will test and reconfirm.


Dear @tglk,

Thank you for the help.
I executed your commands and received the user permissions successfully.
But I’m not able to update bench or requirements.
Request your help. Thanks.

Yes, once you checkout an old tag, you won’t be able to proceed with the bench update path. All, I know is that I have to pull changes for each and every app manually using git pull then run a bench build and finally, migrate whatever the sites using bench --site migrate

I am not using bench update anymore. Even for Frappe and ERPNext apps, I would do the same.
