foreman v1.0.1 ( seen on 1.0 as well)

If I have a user with 'view' permissions and no filters ticked then

as soon as I tick a hostgroup in a filter then

There seems to be no easy way to configure a user such that they can see a list
of all hostgroups with out ticking all the host groups in the filter and maintaining that.

fixes #1853 - Users now have a new filter to subscribe to new hostgroups


#1 Updated by Martijn van Oosterhout over 10 years ago

Just stumbled across this today when trying to figure out why my program using the API couldn't retrieve the list of HostGroups unless the user was made Administrator. Since I'd like this user to be read-only that's not an option.

Oddly enough, contrary to the original report, it can list the hosts, just not the hostgroups. Very odd. Foreman v1.0.

Adding all the HostGroups to the filter works fine.
