Summary0022093: Reporter can´t change status of a bug

Reporters are not allowed to change the head of a bug note after submitting it.
In configuration I set $update_bug_threshold to DEVELOPER and above.
But now reporters can´t change the status e.g. from RESOLVED back to ASSIGNED. By workflow configuration it should be possible.
Now i set $update_bug_status_threshold to REPORTER and above. But this has no effect because bug_update.php line 154 uses access_ensure_bug_level( config_get( 'update_bug_threshold' ), $f_bug_id ); instead of access_ensure_bug_level( config_get( 'update_bug_status_threshold' ), $f_bug_id );
If I change this php file everything works fine for me.

TagsNo tags attached.

I am also having this issue with version 2.1.0

I would like to allow various roles to work within the workflow (assigning, changing status, etc.) but I do not want users below manager to be able to update an issue.

Properly check access level when updating issues

Commit bf1f02f71a85bd4e05cd2a627b3c25e79f96d5a0 (issues 0021393, 0022093)
introduced a bug in the access level check, as it passed the threshold
as a string to access_ensure_bug_level() instead of its actual value.

This seemed to work in PHP < 8.0, because string comparisons behaved
differently [[1]], but in reality there was no actual access check, as
the strings were evaluated to 0 (ANYBODY).

Adding the missing config_get() call to fix the access level check.
