The audits list under Monitor => Audits is no longer visible in version 1.15 if the user hasn't the Administrator role. The assigned role has the view_audit_logs permission in resource Audit. The Audit list is just empty ("No entries found").

Fixes #19952 - Allow view_audit_logs to work

Every time the /audits page is visited by a non-admin user, it checks
whether the permission 'view_audit_logs' is for the Audit class. In
previous versions of 'audited', this was
Audited::Adapters::ActiveRecord::Audit, but right now it's simply

To test the change, visit the page with an user that just has the
'view_audit_logs' permission. Check how without updating the
authorizer.rb file, /audits will be empty.

I can reproduce with the current develop branch, so I assume something between 1.15 and 1.14 borked this. This sounds like a candidate for the next 1.15 patch release.

Note the permissions to show the page seem to work, it's just the content that doesn't load unless User.current == admin

After applying your patch, the audits are visible. Thank you very much!

  • Release set to 1.15.1

No worries, I think this definitely is a regression, so I'm marking it for 1.15.2 (to be released in a couple of weeks).
