    vRA8 - vRO Bug creating workflow

      Hi everyone!

       

      I've started to test vRA 8.0. And I think I've found a bug in Orchestrator service.

       

      I did the following:

       

      1) Log as Orchestrator Workflow Designer, and click on "New Workflow"

      It throws an error on Creating...

      ... so I did it again to check.

      2) I've check the Workflows, and set "web-root" as a filter but nothing appeared.

      3) Log out and log in but now as a Orchestrator Administrator and I found 2 workflows with the very same name:

      Is this a bug?

      Thanks a lot

          It looks to me like a bug. While I don't plan on giving any users access to vRO, I did a quick test on my embedded vRO 8.0.

           

          If I attempt to create a Workflow with a user having Workflow Designer rights and in a group named Test Group I get a 500 error. This appears in the logs:

          ch.dunes.util.NotAuthorizedException: User LDAP-USER-['testuser'] - testuser doesn't have required access rights ((Edit, false)) for calling updateWorkflowWithContent method

           

          If I then use an administrator to add that Workflow to the group, the user can see the workflow. If they attempt to open it they get this error in the logs:

           

          User LDAP-USER-['testuser'] - testuser doesn't have necessary rights 'View', required to execute operation on (Workflow, 92326a73-d471-4bed-96f9-688ae2c5ebf4).

           

          If I try to open the workflow created by the test user with my admin account I get this error in the logs:

           

          [[restServlet]] Servlet.service() for servlet [restServlet] in context with path [/vco] threw exception [Request processing failed; nested exception is java.lang.NullPointerException] with root cause

          java.lang.NullPointerException

           

          I was able to delete the workflow with the admin account though.

           

          In the end the only way I could get it to work was having the Admin create the workflow and assign it to Test Group. The test user could then do whatever they wanted with it.

           

          I would raise a GSS ticket if you need this functionality.

            I do need this functionality and I wonder if I can report bugs myself...
