You will need to add permission for roles to access certain CiviCRM functionality. You can do this by navigating to CiviCRM >> Administer >> Users and permisions >>Permissions (Access Control). And then click on Drupal Access Control. Give permission to specific role and save the form.



  • when I logged in by observer -> "access denied " message came.

  • Did you try playing around with permissions? You may need to give Access CiviCRM permission to have that link visible for user. Commented Sep 25, 2018 at 9:30
