Description Jan Hutař 2017-06-05 10:17:57 UTC
Description of problem:
Even with "Allow Organization Admin to manage Organization Configuration" you can change some organization config options

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create organization and make sure "Allow Organization Admin to manage
   Organization Configuration" is disabled (org admin is not supposed to
   change e.g. "Enable Errata E-mail Notifications (for users belonging to
   this organization)"
     Admin -> Organizations -> <org> -> Configuration -> Allow Organization
       Admin to manage Organization Configuration 
2. Login as admin of that new organization and go to Overview -> Your
   Organization -> Configuration
3. Using web browser remove "disabled='disabled'" from "Enable Errata E-mail
   Notifications" checkbox and "Update Organization" button and change
   the settings (there will be "Size limit modification must be a valid non
   negative number." warning, but that does not seem to be relevant)

Actual results:
Setting gets changed. Looks like you are able to change every setting on the page this way.

Expected results:
Setting should not be changed.

Additional info:
Not sure if this qualifies as a security issue (theoretically you can cause bad things by disabling "Enable Errata E-mail Notifications" for your whole organization even when satellite admin did not granted you right to disable it).

Reproduced on spacewalk-java-2.5.14-89.el6sat with the reproducer from the initial report. Using dev-tools in FF I was able to re-enable all disabled check boxes and the "update" button as well, and change the settings afterwards.

After updating to spacewalk-java-2.5.14-91.el6sat and trying the same procedure as before, I was able to re-enable all controls on the web page, but after pressing "update" button, all setting reverted back to the original state, as set by the global satellite admin.
