Some of the descriptors have changed in 2.4. Look at the security-contraint portion in the -object.xml here: http://docs.jboss.org/jbportal/v2.4/reference-guide/en/html/xmldescriptors.html#d0e2611
You can configure security for these pages using the admin portlet as well.
Thank you for the quick reply.
Changing the action-name from view to viewrecursive fixed it for me. Thanks again.
