Cannot Drive Edit a synchronized file flagged as readonly because Remove permission not granted server-side



    • Type: Bug

    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Fixed

    • Sprint:


      Let's say a user has Read/Write permission on a document but not Remove, because permissions have been overridden for Remove to be included in Manage Everything instead of Write.

      If a user synchronizes the parent folder of the document it will be flagged as readonly on the file system, because of:

      def _synchronize_remotely_created(self, doc_pair, local_client, remote_client):
          self._handle_readonly(local_client, doc_pair)
      def _handle_readonly(self, local_client, doc_pair):
          if doc_pair.is_readonly():
      class StateRow(CustomRow):
          def is_readonly(self):
              if self.folderish:
                  return self.remote_can_create_child == 0
                  return (self.remote_can_delete & self.remote_can_rename
                              & self.remote_can_update) == 0

      Yet the user can Drive Edit the document since it has Write permission on it:

      public class NuxeoDriveActions
          public boolean canEditDocument(DocumentModel doc) {
              if (!documentManager.hasPermission(doc.getRef(), SecurityConstants.WRITE)) {
                  return false;

      When doing so, since the file exists on the file system it is copied from the locally synchronized folder to the temporary edit folder, with its readonly flag.
      => Can be opened but not updated by Word for instance.
      Then at second edition we get an error when Drive tries to remove the previously downloaded file:
