Description Corey Welton 2011-04-21 17:52:26 UTC
Description of problem:
When a public repo is created for a user, it shows up in his repo view and he has a sync button. However, he gets a permission error when trying to sync

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create user 'joeuser'
2.  As rhqadmin, create a repo, "joeuser's public repo"; assure it is public and owned by joeuser
3.  Login as joeuser
4.  Go to repos view and note the existence of "joeuser's public repo".
5.  Select the repo and attempt to sync it.
Actual results:

Failed to delete repositories. Cause: org.rhq.enterprise.server.authz.PermissionException:Subject [joeuser] is not authorized for [MANAGE_REPOSITORIES]: invocation: method=public int org.rhq.enterprise.server.content.RepoManagerBean.synchronizeRepos(org.rhq.core.domain.auth.Subject,int[]) throws java.lang.Exception,context-data={}

Expected results:
Either user should be able to sync, or user should not see the sync button...

Note that the other part of this does work correctly - if "bobuser" goes to repo view, he can see joeuser's public repo but has no sync button.

Lukas, any impact on the scripts from alerts work?

Comment 3 Lukas Krejci 2011-04-25 08:00:23 UTC
This is a UI omission.

joeuser shouldn't have the sync button available to him unless he has the repo manager permission.

The repos for "ordinary" users are intended for uploading stuff.

Only repository managers can configure repos that get their contents pulled from content sources.

So in other words, there is no impact on the alerts work - this is just a UI bug.

    BZ 698767 - only show the sync button in the repo list page if the user is a repo manager.

Comment 5 Mike Foley 2011-04-28 19:20:38 UTC
Documenting the verification as follows:

1) successful sync'ing of repo by rhqadmin

Thu Apr 28 15:19:08 EDT 2011: Start synchronization of Repository [test]
Thu Apr 28 15:19:08 EDT 2011: Getting currently known list of content source packages...

Thu Apr 28 15:19:08 EDT 2011: Repository [test] completed syncing with no errors.

2) no sync button for user who is not a repo manager.
