#48314 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

REST endpoint for getting media will return 401 if first post to use it as featured image is in the trash

Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 5.3

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create a post
  • Upload a featured image to it
  • Save the post and then send it to trash
  • Create a second post
  • Use the same featured image as the trashed post
  • Save the post
  • Try to access the media through /wp-json/wp/v2/media/<id>

The result will be
{"code":"rest_forbidden","message":"Sorry, you are not allowed to do that.","data":{"status":401}}

Expectation would be to have the featured image data
