Summary0007038: an user with a global "admin" role, can loose his rights on a project
DescriptionWe have a lot of testlink projects.
Our projects are private and a user is a local "admin" on each project.

The problem for us is that the local "admin" can remove ("no rights") the global admin from his project.
Then, our global "admin" has no access to this project.

A user could remove all users with administration role (assign user...) from his project. Then we need to correct by accessing directly to the database.

In Mantis the global role "admin" is specific, and has access to all projects.
Steps To Reproduce- login as a local admin of a project
- assign a global admin user to "no rights" on a project
- login as this global admin user
- he has no access to this project
TagsNo tags attached.
Database (MySQL,Postgres,etc)postgres

1) using admin defined at test project level is not (IMHO) a good practice. I'm going to try to block this kind of config

2) How Mantis works is a choice done by Mantis dev team, this does not means that same approach can be or must be used by TestLink.

3) This is not a bug (IMHO), is a valid (but not coherent way) to configure

4) express your requirement as a FEATURE REQUEST not as a bug => needs a different subject.

5) You have a workaround, (a) do not use anymore admin (SPECIFIC) on test project
(b) say people to do not touch global admin.

an option can be that global admin role can not be modified at test project or test plan level

Your option :
"the global admin role can not be modified at test project or test plan level"
would be fine for us.

OK, are you considering any kind of contribution to TestLink ?

I'm working for a french Ministry, sorry but I'm afraid that my contribution is limited to take part to testlink evolution and documentation.
