When a user belongs to multiple groups and those groups are added to a site, Site Members dashlet or people list not always display the correct role?
For example, If a user is in both GroupA and GroupB and If both Group A(consumer) and B(Manager) are added to a Site the user should inherit Manager role which should also appear on the dashlet?
Steps to reproduce:
- Create GroupA and GroupB
- Add user "User1" to both groups
- Add both groups to a site with the following roles:
GroupA -> Collaborator
GroupB -> Consumer
- Go to the "Site Members" dashlet in Site's Dashboard
"Site Members" displays the user with the higher permission that is "Collaborator"
"Site Members" dashlet displays the user with "Consumer" role. The same behaviour is observed when the person is searched using the people finder in the site. However, when the user logs in to Alfresco "Collaborator" permission is granted for the site.
