A forum user with add page permission

Community Bubbles - Question, asked by mikasa_chen on Aug 13, 2011 18:31

Current Status: Answered

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

I found that if I set forum users access to add page,they not only can edit page posted by themselves but also other users' page.
This is strange. Is there any setting can prevent from this situation?
Thanks.

    Thanks for your question. This is not so strange given the context - it's a forum within a Wiki. Since users can edit all other things on a Wiki, having an option for this to extend to the forum pages too is useful. To prevent this though you can use the restrict=true parameter in the add-topic macro

    Hi Gareth,

    The 'restrict=true' function seems to have no effect at all in our Community Bubbles instance on Confluence 3.5. While I added this parameter to the add-topic macro, any page create when using the add-topic button will not have the page restricted to the authoring user. Is there a known error that the 'restrict=true' parameter is broken in Confluence 3.5? We are using v1.7.5 of the Community Bubbles plugin.

    Thanks in advance,

      Hi Juriaan. Can you post your Wiki Markup and an example url produced when clicking on the add topic button - the restriction should be added to resulting create topic url. Thanks.

    Hi Garteh, sure: the Wiki markup is as follows:

    {add-topic:restrict=true}{*}Add Topic{*}{add-topic}

    The resulting URL:

    http://pon.wikihost.nl/confluence9/pages/createpage.action?spaceKey=drivedto&fromPageId=3670025&parentPageString=M5+Rendement+Optimalisatie&editPermissionsUsers=tccadmin

    Is this adequate for you to investigate our issue?

    Thanks in advance for your help, much appreciated!

      I've tried to re-create your problem without success. The url you provided shows that the add topic restriction parameter is working as expected, adding 'editPermissionsUsers=tccadmin' to the url. What this does is inform the create page action to add an editing restriction when creating the page. This works fine for me in my tests. When you are creating a topic, can you confirm that the username is listed in the editing restrictions listed beneath the page editor? and that this stays once the topic is created (i.e. when editing the page again). Thanks.

        Hi Gareth,

        I think together we found the solution: we had not granted our end-users with permission to restrict pages (the space level permission setting). Hence, the user name would not show as 'restrict to' when authoring the page. As soon as I grant our end-users with the given permission, everything works just fine.

        the downside of this setting is that it will prevent even a system admin from editing the page when necessary. However, I noticed that an admin can easily remove the restriction from the very same pop-up. As far as I'm concerned: problem solved. Let's see how our end-users will experience the change Thanks for helping me out!

        Regards,
        Jurriaan
