The exception also occurs against Alfresco 3.2.1 EE b 495 - Stack 1 (environment: Suse 11.1, Websphere, Oracle 10.2g, Alfresco +OpenLDAP Client: MacOS X 10.5.5, Safari 3.2.1)

Seems to be only users in the WCM Content Manager role and the admin user can invoke Regenerate Renditions successfully. Other roles result in permission exceptions. I suspect the original intention was that only Content Managers or admin should have access to this functionality in the GUI and that it should probably be inaccessible for users in other roles i.e. not appear in the drop down in the GUI.

Lowered priority to minor given that only admin or Content Managers should be able to perform this operation and the operation works fine for those users.

However, the GUI is exposing the regenerate renditions action to users without the permissions to perform the action. The fix will ensure that the regenerate renditions action is exposed only to admin users, and users with CONTENT MANAGER permissions on at least one web project. Similarly, the web project drop down list on the first screen of the Regenerate Renditions Wizard will display only web projects that meet the criteria above.

I will also update http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/WCM_roles accordingly.

For retest in 3.3E build 27

Comment by Alfresco QA Team (Inactive) [ 15-May-10 ]

Successfully validated on Alfresco Enterprise 3.3. build 34
(RHEL 5.1 x64, Tomcat 6.0.18, Mysql 5.1.35, JDK 6u16 x64, FF3.6)

If user has Manager permissions to one of the created Web Projects, then "Regenerate Renditions" button is displayed for Web Forms, in other cases functionality is disabled.

The component originally used was not a supported, recognisable system component with an associated component owner. Either the component never existed (it was fictional) or it has reached end-of-life.
The issues will be closed. Reopen and assign to an existing system component if necessary. Use labels appropriately.
