Description Vasyl Kaigorodov 2015-03-31 09:13:20 UTC
It was discovered that in Foreman API it's possible to retrieve any organization information, if the organization is not explicitely set in the API request.
The fix should make sure that if user does not specify an org explicitly - he's scoped to his orgs only.
Initially reported in Foreman public mailing list:
