Description Michael Bowman 2005-01-26 09:48:22 EST
Description of problem:
Channel Administrator gets error when trying to create a new config

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new corporate account / grant entitlements
2. Create a new user and give new user Channel Admin role
3. Login as new user and try to create a config channel
Actual results:
Error page.

Expected results:
I'm assuming this should work or that the user shouldn't see the
'create new config channel' link in the first place. Also, even though
the user gets an error page, the config channel is created. The new
user can't see it though if they browse back to the page.

Additional info:
I have already created a few users to reproduce this one since we
thought it may have been caused by the java code at first.
Org Admin: ssprockets2/dog8code
Channel Admin: gjetson002/dog8code
Comment 1 Bret McMillan 2005-01-26 12:44:44 EST
Whenever you generate an unexpected 500 page, be sure to include w/
the bug the traceback that was generated.  In this case, I believe its:

Form variables:
  ccid => 4468

User Information:
  User mbowman17 (id 3916069, org_id 4313995)

You must have the config_admin acl to create config channels
correctly, however links to create config channels show up to everybody.

Also, anybody is allowed to delete config channels... this seems wrong
to me, but it could be that I just don't know everything about how
these work yet...

Comment 3 Michael Bowman 2005-02-24 12:27:12 EST
Added acl to toolbar to only show create/delete links if a config admin.
Comment 4 Fanny Augustin 2005-03-07 18:07:54 EST
Please provide a test plan. Thanks!
Comment 5 Michael Bowman 2005-03-08 08:36:50 EST
This bug got rolled into the changes bretm and I made to the config channel ui
(146886). Originally, this bug was filed because when a normal user tried to
create a config channel, the ui allowed him to, but the db threw exceptions
since the user didn't have the proper permissions. 

This is now not an issue since there is no way for a normal user to try and
create a config channel. 

I suppose a test plan would be to log in as a normal user (not an org or config
admin) and go to the channels tab. You should *not* see a "manage config
channels" link in the left-hand navigation. You should not be able to get to a
form that allows you to create a config channel.
Comment 6 Max Spevack 2005-03-15 16:52:50 EST

1.  Logging in as a normal user with no admin rights, you see no links
for manage config channels

2.  Granting that user Config Admin rights and logging back in
displays the config channel management links.
