If you try to copy/move folders from the repository to a site document library from Share UI, you lose
the group permissions, This different in Alfresco Explorer.
[Steps to reproduce]:
1.) Create a user named 'user1'
2.) Create a group named 'group1'
3.) Create a private site 'my-private-site'
4.) Go to the repository and create a folder "test"
5.) Set permissions on this folder:
=> User 'user1' with contributor permission
=> Group 'group1' with consumer permission
6.) Move (or copy) this folder to the document library of the 'my-private-site' site: Repository> Sites> my-private-site> documentLibrary
7.) Check the permissions on the copied folder
There should be no change to the permissions
Group1 has been removed from the permissions and "Inherit Permissions" is turned back on
MNT-2048says this was fixed in 4.1.2, but re-testing on 4.1.2 shows that only the manually-added User permissions are retained, and not the Group ones.
- Issue also reproduces for public sites
