Error description

  • Administrator gets RMCA access rights on a private view when
    editing access on view
    
    1) log in as user A, create Private view in a module
    2) then log in as Administrator and open the same module
    3) in the module open the Manage views window
    4) edit the access for the Private view ie editing access for
    user A or adding user B
    5) when clicking apply, a line appears showing that
    Administrator has RMCA rights on the view
    
    When user A then tries to open Manage Views window the following
    DXL error is generated:
    -R-E- DXL: ?standard/access/accessTab.inc:2131? An unexpected
    error has occurred: No access to the administrator account
    But the Access tab for the private view does not now show
    Administrator listed.
    
    If open Manage Views again as Administrator and check the Access
    for the same view, Administrator is listed along with the
    changes that were made.
    
    observed in 8.3, 9.2 and 9.3

    The defect was narrowed down to set and unset perms
    inconsistency. It was possible to add users but do not
    delete users from view if some other user had open this
    module for Exclusive write.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Implementation of unset(View, username) perm has been
    changed to fix this defect.
