SP3 Process Sync Ignores Security
Last updated on JULY 01, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management - Version 126.96.36.199 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
In Meter Data Management version 188.8.131.52, a user with 'Inquire' only permissions is able to process the sync.
As a part of SP3 there is a new piece of functionality that allows for the online transition of master data syncs through the UI. This provides a new "Process Sync" button on the UI; however, this button does not check the sync BO's application service when a user navigates to the sync and attempts to click the button.
There are a few "read-only" user groups that only have Inquire access to sync BOs, in particular, for Service Points, Install Events, and Usage Subscriptions. These users can successfully process a Pending or Erred sync, and that is not desirable.
The application service not being checked is Sync Request Inbound Ongoing BO - D1-SYNCREQINONGOBOAS.
These sync BO's share a common UI Map and UI Map Service script. These currently do not check the application service above.
UI Map: Sync Request Inbound Display - D1-SyncRequestInboundDisplay
UI Map SS: Sync Request Inbound - Retrieve Details for Display - D1-SynInDisp
This can be reproduced using following steps:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1.Perform XAI submission to create sync request
2. Navigate to sync request
3. Attempt to synchronize the sync request by clicking on "Process Sync" button.
