Hi
I have set up a role JC_KEY_LOOKUP with a start menu of building, and without global access, but with specific access to both the main menu and the building menu. However, I can not log in with such settings, but get the following error report:
Fatal Error: menu - Access to task 'menu' has not been allowed. (# 256).

Error in line 1513 of file '/home/radicore/includes/include.session.inc'.

Script: /radicore/menu/logon.php

Stepping through the code, it appears that the following lines from mnu_task.class.inc return access_allowed as N

        $this->sql_select = 'mnu_task.task_id, task_desc, button_text, task_type, pattern_id, script_id, subsys_dir, initial_passthru, selection_fixed, selection_temp, settings, order_by, is_disabled, global_access, keep_data, log_sql_query, screen_refresh, use_https, max_execution_time'
                           .", CASE WHEN mnu_role_task.role_id IS NOT NULL THEN 'Y' ELSE 'N' END AS access_allowed";
        $this->sql_from   = 'mnu_task '
                          . 'LEFT JOIN mnu_subsystem ON (mnu_subsystem.subsys_id=mnu_task.subsys_id) '
                          . "LEFT JOIN mnu_role_task ON (mnu_role_task.task_id=mnu_task.task_id AND mnu_role_task.role_id='$role_id') "
                          . "LEFT JOIN mnu_role ON (mnu_role.role_id='$role_id')";
        $this->sql_where  = '';

        $this->errors = array();

        $fieldarray = $this->getData_raw("mnu_task.task_id='" .addslashes($task_id) ."'");


Does this indicate I have set something up incorrectly?

Why, when the start task is building, is it checking and going to the menu task?

The start task for a role can only be of type MENU, not PROC. This is so that the first page which is displayed after logging on is the home page. This is described in http://www.tonymarston.net/php-mysql/menuguide/mnu_menu.html.

My mistake.

I had enabled access to "menu01", not "main_menu". Main menu is needed for all access. The "menu01" item is the menu and security subsystem. Names can get quite confusing here when you start looking at the code as well, and get variables just called "menu", but the answer there is not to get it wrong.

It still seems strange to me that with the initial task for a user defined as the menu (not proc) task "building", I also need to enable the main menu, but once it is known, it is so little extra effort that it is not worth worrying about.

MENU01 and MAIN_MENU are the identities of different lists of items (there can be many others), while the MENU task is what is used to display a list of items. It may sound confusing to begin with, but once you see the error message "Access to task 'menu' has not been allowed" it is easy to fix - simply add task "menu" to the access list for each role and off you go.

In the next release I shall change the "Add Role" function so that it automatically allows access to the following tasks:

  • menu
  • mnu_user(upd1)a
  • mnu_user(upd1)b
  • mnu_user(upd1)c
