Unable to Edit Projects as Administrator, Showing Restricted
Closed, InvalidPublic


For some odd reason, I am not able to access Projects that are listed as a subproject of a project I created earlier. I am unable to join these subprojects. Also, when creating tasks using Maniphest, when adding a tag, and submitting the task, it shows as Restricted Project.

I am the sole administrator.

My Phabricator Version is: c30fe65ee9c8a4cad3fdbd09032af926384f847f (April 19th, 2016)

I am also a member of the Parent Project, despite it listing otherwise in the error:

Here is the error:

Also, For a brief moment on the Dashboard, I was able to view the Tags in the Tasks. Now they just show as:

I tried removing the Projects by locating the PHID using Conduit, But they returned no results:

This is rather odd. I've never had this issue with Projects and subprojects before.

Event Timeline

We require reproduction steps for bug reports. I would also use an up to date version of Phabricator before filing the bug report (it's required that you update before filing a bug).

Closing for lack of feedback. If you're able to update your install and provide this task with a set of reproducible steps, we can look into it further.

Also, for clarification, "Administrators" on Phabricator are just regular users as far as policies go. They don't override them.

I ran into this issue today as well. The context was a Project created by a regular user a few months back. He added himself and one other user to the Project. He also set the edit policy for the Project to be "Project Members." A few months later, a couple of other users were added to the Project, but neither of them could edit the Project (all links in the "Manage" UI were disabled, can't create milestones, etc.). The users who were in the group when the edit policy was set were still able to manage the group. One of them had to change the edit policy because the newer members of the group could not.

I'm following up now to try to see if I can repro this with a newly created group.

I was unable to reproduce this with a new Project, which makes me suspect the problem isn't a bug in Phabricator. I suspect the Project that was not editable *actually* had a Custom policy with specific users added to it, rather than a "Project Members" policy.

Last follow-up -- no, it was not a custom policy. The log of changes to the Project configuration show that the original setting for the edit policy was indeed "Project Members", which seems to indicate that Phabricator was incorrectly preventing new members from editing the Project.
