Error description

  • Problem
    If 2 databases both use the same RDS repository, the restoring
    of an archive (with specific access) from one into the other
    will result in a partial ACL.
    
    To Reproduce
     - setup 2 databases to use RDS
     - give a project a specific ACL (include more than just the
    Everyone group, specify access for a user or group)
     - archive the project and restore it into the other database
    
    The access specified for the Everyone group is maintained, but
    any other permissions are wiped.
    
    It should either not attempt to restore the ACL (as would happen
    if they weren't using the same RDS) or get the restore right
    i.e. restore it to how it was in the other database.
    
    Possible Workarounds
    Manually restore the ACL.

    ****************************************************************
    On analysing the problem the UID returned by RDS was
    different and hence failed to retain ACL's.

  • The code has been changed so that the issue no longer occurs
