Summary0023900: Unable to update user access level, due to check on 'Realname' returning KO (APPLICATION ERROR #807)

I've checked function user_ensure_realname_unique() on Mantis 2.8.0 and Mantis 2.10.0, a change has been introduced (check by return value = 0), that blocks update of user access level, no matter there are no other users on Mantis with the same username or real name.

Steps to reproduce
1) create a new user with username and real name not present on Mantis
username: user-not-on-system
real name: Real Name Jr
access level: reporter

2) Try to change user access level
you will get APPLICATION ERROR #807

TagsNo tags attached.

I can't reproduce this on master.

Actually, I can reproduce on master but not on master-2.10.

Looked further into this, it seems we had a bad check and when fixed it exposed a bug in logic for 2.10.0 release and earlier.

  • In 2.10.0, the uniqueness check for real name didn't work, enabling creating users with duplicate real names.
  • In master, this uniqueness check was fixed as part of 0023838 - this caused the underlying bug to not allow updating users.
