CLONE - Changing a Site from Private to Public doesn't remove the Locally Set Permissions in 5.0.4

    Details

      Description

      Description:
      When a site administrator changes a site from Private to Public the local user group permissions are still retained although they shouldn't be because of MNT-15509.

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create a Private Site
      2. Add a folder to the Document Library
      3. Edit the Site Details and change to a Public Site
      4. Navigate into the Document Library
      5. Select Manage Permissions on the documentLibrary folder

      Current Behaviour:
      The Inherited Permissions are added in line with a public site and EVERYONE is added as Site Consumer:

      • Everyone (Site Consumer)
      • Site Collaborator
      • Site Consumer
      • Site Contributor
      • Site Manager

      The default Locally Set Permissions originally created for the private site are still set and not removed

      • site_sitename_SiteCollaborator
      • site_sitename_SiteConsumer
      • site_sitename_SiteContributor
      • site_sitename_SiteManager

      Expected Behaviour:
      From MNT-15509:
      "Locally set permissions are retained apart from these groups (above), which should be removed from Locally Set Permissions, since changing the site to Public will naturally inherit them"

      Analysis
      The Alfresco 5.0.4 readme lists MNT-15509 as included in the fixes. Subversion for that jira shows fisheye revision #122280 merged into 5.0.4 and a partial merge with #122341 into 5.1.1 but the behaviour is still the same in these versions.
