Minor Admin bug with a setting when creating a new group


(Clay Heaton) #1
  1. Go into the Admin area
  2. Click “Groups”
  3. Click “New” to create a new group.
  4. Name it and add members.
  5. Change the value for “Who can use this group as an alias?”
  6. Click “Save”
  7. Here’s the bug: Refresh the page. You’ll notice that the “Who can use this group as an alias” selection was not saved. You can only change and save this value after you have created and saved the group.

Incidentally, if you go from doing this to creating a new category and you want to restrict that new category to the group you just created, the group will not appear in the Permissions list under the Security tab on the Category Creation modal until you refresh the page. This is a minor annoyance, but I walk into it every time I do this.

For context: we use groups and restricted categories for discussion of projects that are under NDA, so we have a good number of restricted categories and groups created solely for the purpose of segregating those discussions.
