I cannot set "Workspace permissions: Edit Live (Online)" in Backend anymore neither for BE-Users nor for BE-Groups.

The enabled checkbox appears unchecked after trying to save the checked-state. There is no visible Error (checked also TYPO3-Log). There is no DB error showing up in the Installer-Tool (Database Analysis).

Editors cannot enter Live-Editing anymore, but some of them should be able to do so (bypass Workspace mode by directly doing tiny changes in Live-Mode in my case).

Is there any reason, why the Checkbox for "Edit Live (Online)" is kept on "false" after saving? There seems to be some TCE-Hook keeping it off or there is any bug in it.

This is a result of the removal of the draft workspace.

The workspace_perms field is still set to 2.
Now if you check the field, the internal counter gets incremented to 3. However 3 is not a valid values and thus does not get saved.

I see three independent bugs:
  • an invalid value is not reported back to the user
  • the conversion of the checkmarks to the internal (hidden) field does not work as expected
  • an upgrade wizard failed to change all workspace_perms = 2 fields to 0 or 1.

To work around this, just change the field in the database directly.

Is there something new on this bug?

The problem is still present in current release and I don't think that a manual database-upgrade can be a permanent solution on this!

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Is Regression set to No

I close this because I can't reproduce it and I think it has been fixed long time ago...

I also performed a test, with both usergroup and user:

when I change the status of the checkbox "Edit Live (Online)" and save the record, the new state (checked or
unchecked) remains saved, and the field in database (workspace_perms) changes accordingly

tested with 6.2.13 and 7 (latest master)
