When you add a user and check the desired acl boxes on the systems

How reproducible:
rather consistently

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a user and user acls to a Beaker systems "Access policy" and save.

 The changes are quite often not saved.

Expected results:
 The changes are saved.

Hey Paul,
Any specific system where this happens/happened? Because Iā€™m not able to replicate it.

Comment 3 PaulB 2019-03-19 19:30:04 UTC
This issue is not related to any single system.
Many users have experienced this and made mention to me.


Comment 4 Anthony Gialluca 2019-03-19 19:41:26 UTC
I've noticed that after I go to the ACL page in Beaker. Just prior to making changes I sometimes have to do a 'Shift'-refresh (F5). Then it will take all the changes.

Comment 5 sdoherty 2019-03-19 19:58:41 UTC
I have noticed this as well. Usually if modifying access policy through WebUI, adding a group and the permissions all in one post request is not going to work. I end up having to add a user or group, then save, then refresh before selecting any checkbox. I think that is the work-around that has been consistently ok to deal with.

Comment 6 PaulB 2019-03-19 20:02:38 UTC
So do think this is broken or do I have to do more refreshing??


Comment 7 Jeff Bastian 2019-03-19 20:22:41 UTC
Shawn, that method doesn't work for me: I can add a user, but the "Save Change" button is grayed out until I click a checkbox.  (Hmmm, but if I then uncheck the same box, then the "Save Changes" button remains enabled... weird...)

I have been trying to reproduce this all morning and no such luck. Pretty sure I tried close to 40 retries and none of the possible combinations failed.

Out of curiosity. What browser are you all using?

Comment 9 Jeff Bastian 2019-03-20 12:21:25 UTC
I use both Chrome and Firefox equally.  I don't recall if I saw this problem exclusively in one browser, but I can try it in both and see what happens.

Comment 10 Tomas Klohna šŸ”§ 2019-04-11 08:20:51 UTC
I'm closing this issue, because this will be fixed as part of our Web UI Flask migration. I will assign this ticket under correct Epic in Jira, so we can verify it once the migration is done.
