Subject Re: [Discuss] : Should a non-superuser be allowed to update ACL of feed or process entity
Date Tue, 15 Sep 2015 04:44:14 GMT
Even i agree that user2 shouldn't update/delete/suspend the entity, but we
should be consistent across all API's for the same. As of now submit is
allowed if user belongs to the same group of ACL owner group right ? Should
we also change this behaviour to make sure only ACL owner should be allowed
to submit ?
