Unable to save changes to a Group

Issue: Making any change to a group and trying to save it is unsuccessful. It appears to save, but when you leave the group management page the changes have not taken effect. On returning to the group management page, the changes are not present. I’m seeing no console errors.

Repro steps:

  • Sign in as an admin user
  • Go to /groups
  • Select admins
  • Select manage
  • Change the Full Name of the group
  • Select save
  • Leave the page
  • Navigate back to the page
  • Expected: Changes are saved and visible on the page.
  • Actual: Changes were not saved, and the page is in its original state.

I can confirm I can repro this. This is happening because this group is considered an “automatic group” and as such its “Full name” can’t be changed.

@tgxworld I’m not sure if this is new behaviour or not. But maybe we should consider hiding this field when the group is automatic, it’s quite unexpected.

something like:

{{#unless model.automatic}}
  <div class="control-group">
    <label class="control-label" for='full_name'>{{i18n 'groups.manage.full_name'}}</label>

    {{text-field name='full_name'
        class="input-xxlarge group-form-full-name"

in jsapp/templates/components/groups-form-profile-fields.hbs


Oops this is actually a bug. When the group is automatic, groups/admins/manage/profile should not be accessible. I’ll fix.


Thanks @tgxworld. Should we be able to add/edit flairs for those groups as well? I originally came across this because I tried adding a flair and it failed.

You should be able to but not for automatic groups though.
