Description Jesus M. Rodriguez 2009-08-13 20:15:32 UTC
Can not create a child channel with a shared parent base channel.

1) create a base channel in org a
2) share it with org b
3) go to org b, create a new channel
4) select the base channel from org as the parent

actual result: NO PARENTS listed
expected result: base channel from org a (plus any accessible entitled
channels and any of org b's base channels)

Comment 1 Jesus M. Rodriguez 2009-08-13 20:26:10 UTC
This change introduces another bug though, but that is expected :)

If after you created the channel above, you log back in as org a
and make the shared channel PRIVATE. 

Now log back in as org b and go to the the All channels page:

the base channel should show as 'no access to parent' but you will see
the child channel created by org b.

Now click on manage software channels. Notice you can see the name of the inaccessble channel. :)  And you can click on the link. But you wlil get
a Permission error. This is how we mitigated the problem.

Clarification of the problem description:
4) attempt to select the base channel from org a as the Parent Channel

Following the problem description steps, the public base channel created by org a is now listed in the Parent Channel: drop down list of step 4 when creating a child channel in the trusted org b.

moving to VERIFIED

Moreover, following the steps in Comment #1, I observe the behaviour described by Jesus.  While the name of the parent channel may be exposed, the channel cannot be modified - its property fields appear read-only or have disabled controls.

1) create a base channel in org a
 # This channel is public and may be accessed by any of the trusted organizations trusted by this organization
 # organization b is trusted now
2) share it with org b
3) go to org b, create a new channel
4) select the base channel from org as the parent

Verified again on Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20090814.0/x86_64
