Description Justin Sherrill 2008-11-06 14:26:22 EST
In the two api calls user.setDefaultSystemGroup(s) if you pass in a system group to be the default and include a group that the target user is not an admin of, you get an error saying "Unable to locate or access server group".  

As soon as you set that user to be the admin of the group then the error goes away.

This behaviour is different from the WebUI which allows you to select groups to be the default for a user regardless of if that user is an admin of the group or not.

This is tested in the api automated unit tests.

Also the case with removeDefaultSystemGroup(s)

Comment 3 John Matthews 2009-01-23 15:42:48 EST
Looking at commit:

I'm assuming the API calls are 
user.addDefaultSystemGroup(s)  and not "setDefaultSystemGroup(s)".
