Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-2003) Edit roles deletes all existing roles when sharing a user database
Date Thu, 08 Apr 2010 02:06:23 GMT


Brent N Atkinson commented on CONTINUUM-2003:

Brett, I believe we chatted about this a couple months ago. It requires upgrading to a patched
version of redback in *both* products to fully address the issue. This was a redback struts2-integration
bug. I just recently created the placeholder issue to ensure that archiva and continuum are

I want to make this explicit in case any users end up here: 

To escape this bug you need to run versions of archiva *and* continuum that include a fix.
If either product is unpatched, as soon as you edit roles using the unpatched product you'll
delete the roles for the other product. I've been running multiple installations (archiva
1.3/continuum 1.3.5) without issue using the patch referenced in REDBACK-253.

> Hi,
> I've installed continuum-1.2.2 and archiva-1.1.3. For both, I'm using the same "users"
database schema as i do not want to create accounts twice. When I edit roles in continuum,
it first deletes existing roles then add all checked roles. But, the user can also be an "Archiva
repository manager" for example. So, if I want to add roles to a user, I have to do it manually,
playing SQL script on DB, otherwise Archiva roles are removed.
> Note that this is the same for Archiva (editing roles in Archiva removes roles for Continuum
if database is the same).
> To reproduce:
>  - install continuum and archiva and give them the same schema for users
>  - create a user
>  - give him some roles in archiva
>  - go in continuum, give him some roles and submit
>  - archiva roles are removed
