ACI editor table sort problem
Last modified: 2015-01-04 18:20:18 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to edit targets in the ACI editor pane -> Targets tab and sorting
the target attribute table by Name, cannot check the checkbox at first and whats
more, the name field changes to an attribute name which is IMHO the attribute in
that exact position on the unsorted list. So when I try to check the attribute
in the sorted list, I select the wrong attribute, because the sorting seems to
be just visually done.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Directory Console
2. Select Directory Server Console
3. Select Directory Tab
4. Select an entry
5. Hit Ctrl + L
6. Select any ACI or create new
7. On the "Edit ACI for..." pane select Targets tab
8. Sort table by name
9. Try to check some attribute, and the discrepancy should show himself.
Selecting an unwanted attribute for ACI target inclusion.
Selecting the visually shown attribute for ACI target inclusion.
Running on Sun Java 126.96.36.199
I also encountered this problem with Fedora DS 1.0.2 .
You can work around it by following these steps for each attribute you want to
select or deselect.
1. Click the column name you want to sort on.
2. Find and click ONCE in the check box of the attribute you want to modify.
3. Repeat until you are finished.
To check that no other attributes were changed, you can clcik the checkbox icon
in the column names to sort by selection.

Fix Description: The main problem was that the Table Model code was not checking the type of the model change event, and was just unconditionally resetting/initializing the internal indexes array every time the checkbox was checked. This caused the table to revert back to the original order every time a checkbox was checked on or off. The only events which should cause the indexes to be reset/initialized are the INSERT and DELETE types, not the UPDATE type. There were also some problems with setting up the initial model, and I cleaned up some bogus code.
Platforms tested: RHEL5
Flag Day: no
Doc impact: no
Checking and unchecking target attributes after a sort by name, seems to behave properly however, I am not certain of what the "discrepancy" in the description was. I'de like to verify that exactly what was happening is no longer happening.
I have same question as Jenny does. My guess is that the unchecked column will become checked after sorting. And I can verify this mis-behave is not happening.
I will verify with Nathan.
just check with Nathan, my guess is close but not exact.
When we click the table title to request a "sort" action, not just the column of check boxes should be shift correspondingly, but the backend data (called model) need to change as well.
my test result above is part ot verification, but i need one more test
test is below:
1. setup 2 acis for a certain user. make sure use console and make the target column sorted back and force couple times
such as: FTPDownloadBandwith ARecord
2. save the above change
3. make ldapsearch against this user. verify the aci includes correct selected aci
test result: pass
[root@mv32a-vm ~]# /usr/lib/mozldap/ldapsearch -D "CN=directory manager" -w redhat123 -s sub -b "ou=accounting,dc=example,dc=com" "uid=*Bt*" "aci"
dn: uid=BTahamont34, ou=Accounting, dc=example,dc=com
aci: (targetattr != "FTPDownloadBandwidth || ARecord") (version 3.0;acl "newac
i";allow (all)(userdn = "ldap:///anyone");)
check attached screen as well
