Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 87596
Can't categorize CIs; lack permission
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:52:33 EDT
Description of problem:
The author of a content item cannot categorize it. Get a message saying:
'Need categorize items privilege on that category'
Several CMS tests assign items to categories & test published article
I need some guidance on this one. The category permission checks on tip are the
same as those that existed when I started making UI changes.
So, what is the *expected* behavior? Should an item author automatically get
the categorize-items privilege? Scott, I added you since you mentioned
something about changes to permissions in categorization.
I _think_ the right thing here would be to grant the author the "Categorize
items" privilege. I don't know what the exact use case for this is, but I
expect it would be something like "We have 100 authors, but only some of them
have the privilege to categorize items -- items authored by those other authors
will have to be categorized at the approval step" or something like that. In any
case, if granting the author (or the author's role) that privilege solves the
problem, then it sounds like the system is working as intended.
Fixed in perforce 31973 by adding the categorize_items privilege to the Author
role in CMS's enterprise.init.in.
