Group owner import for other failed (OMERO.importer 5.4.10)

Hi,

on our 5.4.10 OMERO installation the import of files failed (OMERO.importer) if a group owner try to import files for another user in the group. Sorry but there is no exception available. The failed notification is thrown at preparing upload. Is this behaviour desired and from now only administrator with restricted privilegs can import for others?

Regards,
Susanne

That is rather unfortunate, sorry to hear you encountered this! We were quite surprised and have been taking a look. (Jean-Marie is trying to make the error message more useful, Simon pinned the regression down to OMERO 5.4.6 and Petr has a proposal for how to extend our test suite to prevent this problem from recurring.) Until we get a fix in place you should find that you can still import then give the data to the target user via CLI chown.

Thank you for the reply. Please, can you let me know if you get a fix?

Regards,
Susanne

Updated from @sukunis that this is still occurring with OMERO. For the current discussion, see https://github.com/ome/omero-server/issues/63
