Urgent: Viewing the defintion of role vs Editing permissions Moodle 2.5 and 2.51!
 

Hi,

after finishing upgrading from 1.9.19->2.2.10->2.5->2.5.1 I recognized following phenomene smile):

The permissions in the Editing Permissions page are almost all not set for the guest role, which is correct.

But in the 'Viewing the defintions of the guest role' page they are almost all set to 'Allow'.

The other role views seem not to be the same as the editing page either.

Which page shows the real setted permissions?

In Moodle 2.2.10 the pages were correct. editing and viewing showed the same permissoins.

Regards,

Monica

Hi Monica,

When you view a role via Administration > Site administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles, you see all the permissions which are set to allow, prevent or prohibit. When you edit a role, you see every single permission listed - not set as well as set (which is maybe better shown if you click the 'Show advanced' button).

Hi Helene,

I know and when clicking 'Show advanced', the permissions aren't set the way

they show up in the edit page, eventhough nothing was changed since upgrading 

to Moodle 2.5(.1) from 1.9!

I mean the 'not set' permissions in the edit page are 'allow' in the viewing page and the allowed permission in the edit page are 'not set' in the viewing page.

Hi again,

which page is the correct one, the editing or the viewing one?

Hmm, that does sound weird. The only thing I can suggest is for you to do as advised in the FAQ 'Permissions don't seem to be working correctly. What can I do?' in Roles FAQ.

Hi Helene,

thank you for that hint, now it seems to be ok.

Cheers,
