How can another user have interactive access to my cloud deployed notebook?

I have coded a (simple) notebook with interactive elements like Manipulate[Plot[...]], etc. .

Then I exported it via

obj = CloudExport[nbexpr, "NB", "My notebook", Permissions -> "rx"]

to the cloud. With the resulting URL hyperlink the corresponding website opens and I can use the interactive elements. From another computer and as another user I can open the website but no interactivity is allowed. What is to be done in order that third-party users can exploit the functionality of my notebook. ( Permissions -> "Public" does not help either)

Ah, I see. Instead of nbexpr= Notebook[...], I was doing nbexp = Notebooks[][[3]], which was the existing notebook I wanted to deploy. That works as you expect.

I'm not an expert in front end functions, so I'll ask about why the method you used doesn't work.

Hi Chad,

thanks. But it seems that the user (defined by the email address "") should have an account at Wolfram Research. At least - the corresponding login windows pops up if the URL is activated at the other computer.

With Permissions -> {All -> {"Read", "Interact", "Evaluate"}}

I can open the notebook on the other computer without login but without interactive possibilities either.

Is it possible that a user without any connection to WR can open and use interactively a cloud notebook?

In the Permissions page, you can find a list of additional permissions for deployed notebooks, including "Interact". Here's one example of settings that should work for this case:
