Item11373: Unable to add a member to a group when the new member is contained as a substring of an existing group member.

Priority: CurrentState: AppliesTo: Component: WaitingFor:
Urgent Closed Engine FoswikiUsers, TopicUserMappingContrib  
The addUserToGroup function will not add any user or group that is contained as a prefix in another member of the group.

  • Add JohnSmithson to the group - it works
  • Add JohnSmith to the group. The API reports success but the member is not added.

The regex that checks to avoid duplicate membership in a group was not delimited for either beginning or end of the name being added. So this also fails if the name is contained in any part of another name.
