Group membership - inconsistency


#1

Hello.

Could you please explain me why this inconsistency occurs? When I create a user without any group assignment it shows it is a member of camunda BPM Administrators at the Welcome Page. On the other hand in the Camunda Admin page there is no group at all this user is member of. Moreover I can do any administrative tasks with this user.

Affected version: 7.9.0; 7.10.0

Hi @sadelmichal,

Is this the initial user created via the admin app, i.e. this interface: https://docs.camunda.org/manual/7.9/webapps/admin/user-management/#initial-user-setup?

Cheers,
Thorben

Hi @thorben.

Answering your question, no the initial user is created when application first runs and initialize a database. The user is root. The user ja has been created via UI.

The problem I had was trivial though, the authorization plugin was not enabled shame on me. So when it is not enabled any user apparently is implicitly member of camunda-admin group.
