Summary17454: Unable to remove a user with survey permissions with friendly url enabled
DescriptionUnable to remove user in domain from "Survey permissions" list if friendly URL is enabled.
Steps To ReproduceDescription:
- add a new user in "Manage survey administrators", username: "DOMAIN\username" (without assigning permissions)
- go to the poll in "Survey permissions", add the user to the list, save with an empty list of permissions
- click the delete icon next to the added user
- displays the message: "Deleting user Username: DOMAIN Success!" (dont backslash and username are missing here)
URL: https://limesurvey.test/admin/surveypermission/sa/delete/surveyid/333457/action/delsurveysecurity/user/DOMAIN%5Cusername/uid/6
- after clicking ok, it moves to the list of users where our "DOMAIN\username" is still visible because it has not been deleted.

After disabling the friendly url:
- again delete user "DOMAIN\username"
"Deleting user User name: DOMAIN\username Success! (displays correctly)
URL: https: //limesurvey.test/index.php?r=admin/surveypermission/sa/delete/surveyid/333457&action=delsurveysecurity&user=DOMAIN%5Cusername&uid=6
- after clicking ok, it takes us to the list of users, where there is no deleted user
Additional InformationProject configuration:
- "WebServer" plugin enabled
- "Delete part of domain ..." option unchecked, ie we want to save users as DOMAIN \ username
- in the configuration file we turned on the "auth_webserver_autocreate_user" option to automatically add them
- in the configuration file we additionally changed the options for "urlManager", we set "urlFormat = path", "showScriptName = false" and "caseSensitive = true".
- in IIS we use the Rewrite mod
- in the web.config file we also have redirect rules set to cut the "php" extension - we'll join it later if needed.

If "friendly url" is disabled at the configuration file level, ie changing urlManager options to default, everything works fine.
TagsNo tags attached.

That's what I thought, wouldn't it be better if this mechanism passed the user id instead of the username in the user parameter?

Sorry, I didn't notice that the link has a uid, so why is the user parameter additionally passed?

I don't know : must be tested without the name.

There are currently another commit about deletion of user @gabrieljenik : you can check ?
