    FIX: Approve Vm provisioning in UI
    The workflow requester is set to the current_user.
    The group context for the request was then being set in the the
    current_user, corrupting it.
    1. MiqRequestWorkflow#requester = MiqRequest#requester
    so the correct dialogs will be displayed.
    2. Requester is cloned before setting the group as a precaution.
    This assumes the viewer and administrator can see the resources that
    the requester has access to view as well.

What is the correct way to create a role without approve rights?
Comment 4 Keenan Brock 2016-02-05 15:11:16 EST

I think a self service user does not have approval rights.

The bug is when an admin (with privs and many groups) views a request,
the admin is moved into the group of the user who created the request.

So privileges go away, since the buttons are based upon the user's group in the view.

Kevin Morey created the ticket and may be able to help you reproduce.

Using admin user, I created a provision request for 3 vms, which does not get automatic approval because gt 1, then I was able to approve it.  Also tried deny without issue.  Good to go.
