Sitefinity 4.1 Security Issues (After Upgrade)
Despite the other issues bugging other users, in general I am able to work with the new release. I came accross an issue, however, that I may not have noticed for awhile had I not had a specific need. Right now, I have a few users, and don't go into the user administration that much right now, and ran into a problem after the upgrade to Sitefinity 4.1:
Click on any user, and the following error occurs (including admin users):
Hi Greg Figueroa,
After the upgrade do you have a record in sf_meta_type_descriptions that looks like this:
id - 445278DC-F303-4BEC-8589-E2A7446C610C
app_name - //
meta_type_id - 638670CC-B540-4FD3-ADB0-101899D1630A
user_friendly_name - Basic profile
description - NULL
voa_version - 1
Also you need a record in sf_meta_types with id equal to the meta_type_id above. Some clients reported that after a fresh upgrade this issue was fixed.
Indeed the sf_meta_type_descriptions table is completely empty. I added the record, however, you say a corresponding record with an id that matches this records meta_type_id must exist in sf_meta_types, however, you neglected to tell me the following:
For now, I put "Security" in class_name and "Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Model" in name_space. Unfortunately, the problem still exists. I suppose I'll have to create a fresh site and compare the databases. Very unfortunate.
Okay, so I created a new site, and found the proper entries for the tables you spoke about. After making the changes, nothing is different. The error still occurs. I suppose I'll have to open a ticket.
Hello Greg Figueroa,
It seems that the upgrade process didn't do its job properly. That's why you don't have these records in the database. Also, it seems like there are other records to be added somewhere as well, but I'm not sure how OpenAccess serializes the data. We are investigating the upgrade issues now and hopefully will fix them for the upcoming Service pack.Best wishes,
