#7675 "Error 500" when saving SVN permissions #8522

Project: https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/admin/fgaddon/update


I try to set "permissions" for my SVN repo ( https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/fgaddon/ )

I'm able to access the setting page ( https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/admin/fgaddon/permissions ) and select groups, but when I press "Save" button I fallback on https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/admin/fgaddon/update where there is "Error 500 We're sorry but we weren't able to process this request."
Thus my settings are not saved.

This happened yesterday, before I was able to save permissions settings without problem but since yesterday I have this "Error 500" each time I press "Save" button.

I hope you will be able to help me to fix it because I really need to change the permissions on my SVN repo.


Had IM conversation with Dave asked that I escalate this ticket to Engineering for code changes

    Looks like this happens whenever you have a custom group, and use it in a tools permissions, and then delete the group. Then you can't save the tool permissions any more.

    The error trace we need to handle is:

    File '/var/local/allura/Allura/allura/app.py', line 839 in update
      map(lambda role: role.name, groups + del_groups)),
    File '/var/local/allura/Allura/allura/app.py', line 839 in <lambda>
      map(lambda role: role.name, groups + del_groups)),
    AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'name'
