ACL Manager and CBSubs creates orphans

9 years 2 months ago #240077 by andor
Hi again,

I'm using "ACL Manager" and was trying to setup CBSubs to allow a few users to handle payments.

When I did that by changing permission in CBSubs Settings/Permissions it works as intended but ACL Manager is giving me a warning about orphan assets. Clearing that warning removes the new permission settings in CBSubs.

After a discussion with the people behind ACL Manager, where they installed and tested CB and CBSubs, they concluded with the following:

The issue is caused by the very unique setup of Community Builder and CBSubs. They try to use parts of the Joomla core, but causing issues on other areas.

In this case they store permissions for CBSubs in the Joomla #__assets table under the name "com_cbsubs". This is fine normally, but CBSubs isn't a component (check administrator/index.php?option=com_cbsubs in your backend).

The diagnostic tool of ACL Manager is checking if all components assets really have an extension reference, so ACL Manager checks for a component com_cbsubs, but can't find it and decide "not installed, so should be removed from the assets table".

Will this issue be addressed in upcoming versions of CB and CBSubs?


Joomla 2.5.13
CB 1.9.1
CBSubs 3.0.0

Yes, we've a bug ticket to address this in a future release of CBSubs. For the time being just ignore the warning and it'll work perfectly fine.
