Subject Workbench and ACLs
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2011 14:08:11 GMT
Hi team,


I have a question about the Workbench.

I'm experiencing a problem whenever I perform a login using a user, who has no rights to see
and modify permissions. It looks like the Workbench performs an extra getObject call with
the includeAcls=true argument to retrieve the object permissions and fill the ACL pane on
the right. At this point our CMIS implementation throws a PERMISSION_DENIED error according
to the chapter of the specification (see "... MUST return the ACLs ..." in the image
below) since the user is not allowed to see permissions on the required object.




Unfortunately the Workbench shows the error received with an error dialog and gives up working
further. All buttons are grayed out and the GUI becomes unuseful.


See error for WS ...




... and for Atompub.




I would expect the Workbench to catch such a PERMISSION_DENIED error, leave the correspondent
ACLs pane empty but keep on working with further objects.

Is that a known issue? Is there any fix for that (I'm using the 0.5.0 version)?

Or am I missing something?


Thanks for any hint you might have.

- Stefano
