Group management tools show up for all users

Hello if you go to /groups as a normal user you can manage groups all groups I imagine this probably isn’t meant to be happening :sweat_smile:

We suspect this is a UI problem where that control is showing up when it shouldn’t.

Can you check a few things?

  • try removing me from that group
  • does it still show up if you refresh the page?
  • does it still show up if you do a hard reload?

Ok, I will try those things now.

Right so the good news is I can’t remove you from the group. Originally I didn’t want to press anything. However the UI still appears after a refresh and hard refresh.

A few more:

Do the controls only show up for this group?

What browser are you using?

If you log in via Incognito mode, does it still show up?

Ah, @Osama found the problem. This button:


shows up for all users and brings up the group management tools. It shouldn’t be showing up for everyone.


@cvx, can you add that to your list?
