VFS Linking doesn't update after changing a User Name - Bug?

quebecman @ Fri Feb 06 16:58:04 EET 2015
Hello,

As the title says, after changing manually a user name that was already created, the VFS LINKING doesn't update. In other terms, it gets orphans in the VFS LINKING list.

Would this need a PLUGIN to RUN or something like it?


Thanx. Regards.

I spent time trying to follow what you are saying and trying to replicate.


Please provide screenshots explaining this as I can't follow your description of how to replicate this.


I made user1, added a folder in its VFS, saved.

I made user2, added a folder in its VFS, saved.  I then linked user1's VFS into user2.  Saved.

I then duplicated user2.  No issue with user3, everything duplicated.

I then renamed user1 to be user11, now user2 and user3 are pointing to a dead VFS item.  They both have VFS issues when logging in, but that is easily fixed in the User Manager.  Its like you set programs to use a D drive in your machine, then suddenly removed the drive, and logged in...your going to have issues since you just removed a drive things expected to exist.


So I can't replicate this.  Please provide more screenshots as just following your directions on the issue is a little hard to know what you intended in everything.


Sorry,

Ben

Confirmed...we will fix the error, but we can't fix tracking what the username being changed was.

Thanks,

Hello,

Hmmmmmm... I am not shure if we are taking about the same issue here, but here something strange that I have found:

Once a VFS link is added to an already existing account, it doesn't show in the USERMANAGER but if I create a new user by duplicating a "usertemplate" it does update the new user.


Thanx. Regards.

Can you explain this more? I'm not following this...

Is this related to the orphaning or not?

Thanks,

Hello,

It's not related to the ORPHA, it's ANOTHER BUG report. Here are the step on how to reproduce the issue:

Create 2 user one called test and one called test 2

- Add any VFS to TEST.
Create a VFS link to TEST2.

The issue that i see is that you don't see the VFS Folder under test 2 but...


Now, create a TEST3 by DUPLICATING TEST. You will see that TEST 3 as the VFS LINK.


The VFS link doesn't seems to properly propagate to already existing users. It's impossible for an admin to see what the users will see in it's webinterface.

I have sent you 2 snapshots at suppor

Thanx. Regards.

Hi, quebecman.

Is this still an issue after I logged in and created the proper VFS structure?
I guess you had some VFS's pointing to the same folder not allowing any change, as they tried multiple write.
With a proper VFS I could not replicate it anymore.

Let us know.

Thanks,
Arpad.

Hello Solyom84,

You can go ahead and close this thread. I was explain by one of your support persone the right way of creating VFS. This as lead to creating a USER that had the SAME NAME as the GROUP. In other terms, all the users that I was putting in the GROUP are heriting the CONFIG.

In other terms, instead of working with tons of VFS LINK, I did created only 1 for 100 members.



Thanx for the follow up
Regards.

Hello,

 

  I would like to confirm this bug is not fixed and should be put on the tasklist.  It doesn't affect the production but when a USER was RENAMED and or DELETED, it's impossible to REMOVE the VFS that LINKS to it!


The only workaround is to not DELETE and or RENAME a user that is VFS LINKED.


Thanx. Regards.
