Non-admin group owners can't edit members of non-visible groups

(Michael Downey) #1

Continuing the discussion from Group owners for managing group membership:


  1. Create a group GroupName and do not select “Group is visible to all users”.
  2. Add a group owner who is not otherwise a privileged Discourse user (not an admin)
  3. As that user, navigate to /groups/GroupName to edit the group membership.

Expected Result:

  • The non-admin group owner should be able to see & edit group members.

Actual Result:

  • The non-admin group owner gets an error page and can’t see the group.

Yes, but since it’s a bug, I wanted to give it its own first-class topic otherwise it might never get fixed :bug:

That hasn’t worked well in the past :wink:

Sorry if unnecessary bumping, but have this issue been solved or is planned to be solved soon?

I think you are right. This is a very important feather Discourse should have. The developer should add such feather.

Is there a bug here for us to fix @sam?

Pretty sure it’s sorted - didn’t realize my report last month was a duplicate:
