If you're not, please head to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs will be migrated starting at the end of May. If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "", where "X" is a digit).

Description Peter Ondrejka 2021-01-27 15:30:52 UTC
Description of problem:
Viewing the tasks page as non admin user with cloned manager role that has organizations assigned fails in ui with:

Could not receive data: Request failed with status code 500

prodlog (attached) shows:

[I|app|f5671e24] Backtrace for 'Action failed' error (ActionView::Template::      Error): PG::SyntaxError: ERROR:  syntax error at or near "'1,6,4,3,5'"

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

Satellite 6.8 snap 10

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a satellite with mutliple orgs
2. Clone a manager role, assign it to all or some orgs
3. Create a user, assign the role to it, assign it to one or more of the role's orgs
4. Log in as the user or impersonate, navigate to Monitor > Tasks

Actual results:
No tasks listed, above errors shown

Expected results:
Tasks viewed as exoected

Additional info:
Seems to be related to org assignment in cloned role, using the default manager role or using a cloned role with no org assigned doesn't produce this issue

Alternative steps to reproduce:

1) run foreman-rake console
2) Enter ForemanTasks::Task.search_for("organization_id ^ (1)").first

Searching by taxonomies on tasks still uses a custom external method, which doesn't handle queries with IN well.

Comment 4 Peter Ondrejka 2021-02-01 10:54:47 UTC

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite since the upstream issue has been resolved.

Comment 6 Adam Ruzicka 2021-02-11 08:49:43 UTC
Requesting 6.9.0+ since this blocks

Comment 9 Peter Ondrejka 2021-03-01 14:44:59 UTC
Verified on Satellite 6.9 snap 15

Comment 10 Peter Ondrejka 2021-03-01 15:16:32 UTC
Sorry, taking back comment#9, the verification steps from comment#3 work well, though when using original steps (cloned role with multiple orgs and user with some of those orgs) the issue persists with the following in the production log:

PG::InvalidTextRepresentation: ERROR:  invalid input syntax for type integer: "1,3,5,7,6,4"

Comment 11 Peter Ondrejka 2021-03-08 12:26:50 UTC
Hi Zach, I still see tfm-rubygem-foreman-tasks-3.0.4 on snap 16, did we miss a cherry-pick?

Comment 12 Peter Ondrejka 2021-03-12 09:37:43 UTC
