Event Protection with local groups

I’m currently migrating an indico 1.2 install to 2.1 via 2.0 and during testing we discovered that the event protection permissions table shows local groups by numeric ID rather than name. At first I thought this might be a migration issue, but I can reproduce the behaviour on a fresh install of 2.1.5 without any imported data.

It doesn’t appear to affect the usage of the group permissions, and the group name does seem to be present in the escaped form field that is used to populate the ACL control.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new group.
  2. Create a new event.
  3. Grant that group any permissions under the ‘protection’ settings page.


Clearly a bug - since we don’t really use local groups we never noticed that ourselves…

Any chance of reviving this? It’s still an issue, and I don’t see any updates since opening the bug report.

Turned out to be a one-line fix. We’ll include it in a 2.2 patch release since we want to do one for the event labels feature anyway.

This is now fixed in the 2.2-maintenance branch (including some improved UI in for remote groups where the source wasn’t displayed); we’ll release 2.2.7 containing this fix soon (likely today or monday).

Awesome – thank you!
