Description Corey Welton 2011-04-19 17:42:00 UTC
Description of problem:

When looking at reports, users who have config_write permissions might (mistakenly) assume they have the ability to use the delete button.  Please see the following BZs for more examples:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=697854
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=697857

As it stands, manage inventory permissions are required in order for the delete button to be enabled.  As this might be somewhat confusing, a docs bug might be in order.  Something akin to:

"Note: A user who has config/write permissions will not necessarily be able to delete records in a report. Reports require manage inventory permissions in order to delete."

(though probably worded a little better)

Please add a newline character between para 1 and 2.

For comment #3, this is a CSS issue with publican. I think there is a fix in an upcoming release.
