Description

PROBLEM (summary):
A Item Link field appears to be missing a condition to limit the list of items in the dropdown on a tracker form to those that the user has permission to see.

Details:
(Reproduced on demo.tiki.org site. See details below)

Imagine you are using the Tracker functionality NOT for user registration but for allowing users to create a home inventory.

You have 3 trackers created:

  • 1 a tracker of Location that has fields "Friendly Name" - Text Field, "Relation to Another Location" - Item Link to "Friendly Name" items in Location, and "Specific Location" - Text Area (Note: DO NOT give "Relation to Another Location" Item Link the ability to Add Item..., or you will zap all the memory of your Tikiwiki! )
  • 2 a tracker of Items that has fields "Friendly Name" - Text Field, "Location of Item" - Item Link to "Friendly Name" items in Location tracker, "Value" - Text Field
  • 3 a tracker of Inventory that has fields "Item" - Item Link to "Friendly Name" in Items (with an "Add Item..." option) and "Photo" - File


All 3 trackers have a mandatory User field with auto-assign to creator

Registered Users have ONLY the following tracker permissions:
tiki_p_attach_trackers
tiki_p_tracker_view_attachments
tiki_p_comment_tracker_items
tiki_p_tracker_view_comments
tiki_p_create_tracker_items
tiki_p_modify_tracker_items
tiki_p_remove_tracker_items permissions

Data input is carried out via wiki pages with tracker/trackerlist

ALMOST everything is working - 2 users (TEST1 and TEST2) can input data and neither can see the other's inventory. - That's Good.

The PROBLEM is:
The Item Link drop-down shows ALL the items of the tracker from both users.
In other words, when TEST1 is selecting a Item from the Tracker List, TEST2's items show up.

Fortunately, if the Item List is rendered as a link in the trackerlist, TEST1 will get an error when trying to click on TEST2s stuff (presumably, to see the Value field to come over to his house and steal his stuff ;) )

But, the problem is that, with a lot of users, the dropdown list becomes unusably long.

Reproduction on the 10X Demo site:
Log in as TEST1 or TEST2
Password 12345
Go to the Home Inventory Form wiki page
Test1 has: Television in Office in Test1s Home
Test2 has a vase in bedroom of Test2s home
Admin has a Linux computer in the living room ;)

Now, if you go in as, say, Test1, on the Home Investory Form page you will only see Test1s stuff, but in the dropdown box of locations, you'll see Test2's bedroom, Test2s home and Admin's living room.

I had to change (limit) Registered group's access as describe above in the details.
Sorry to anyone out there using it!
