#12913 closed defect (fixed)

Wrong error message on start after update from 1.2 to 1.2.2 — at Version 3

Reported by: Dirk Stöcker Owned by: Ryan J Ollos
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.2.3
Component: general Version: 1.2.2
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Branch:
Release Notes:

Fixed incorrect logging of negated permission as invalid in AuthzPolicy.

API Changes:


Hi, I updated our trac from 1.2 to 1.2.2 and get following start message:

Trac[authz_policy] WARNING: The action !WIKI_MODIFY in the [wiki:...] section of fineperm.conf is not a valid action.

based on the line:


in fineperm.conf

Actually the line still works correctly, so I assume some sanity check does not properly recognize the "!" syntax.

Milestone: 1.2.3

Thanks for the reporting! It seems that is regression of #12734.

Also, we should add unit tests with !ACTION. Missing tests for that.

Committed the comment:1 patch in r16336, merged to trunk in r16337.

Proposed additions to test coverage in [2556a86ad/rjollos.git]. This is targeted to trunk since we have a mock logger that captures messages in-memory.
