User deletion does not work

Added by Sébastien Dinot at 2013-02-27 03:50 pm


First of all, a big thanks for your work. We use Chiliproject for Orekit [], a free low-level space dynamics library distributed under Apache v2.0 license, and all contributors are satisfied with it.

But we have a little issue with the user account deletion. It fails with the following error:

You are not authorized to access this page.

The following message appears in the log file:

Processing UsersController#destroy (for xx.xx.xx.xx at 2013-02-27 15:16:28) [DELETE]

This message does not explain why the operation failed and I do not know what is wrong. Could you help me?

Thanks in advance.

Not all users are deletable, only those that are registered and haven't logged in yet.

Could you check the DB row for that user if the last_login_on is null and status is 2? That's the only combination that should allow deletion currently.

We can't delete users that have logged in before? Well that's a bummer. There are a few that are causing some ruckus that I'd really like to get rid of. Is there any way around this?
