Question

I have just upgraded to TWiki 4.1.2 and Bulk Registration appears to no longer work.

We operate TWiki using external ldap authetication through Apache mod_ldap and users cannot self register, we therefore use a TWikiAdminGroup user to bulk register new users. On version 4.0.5 (the previous version running here) this worked.

Since upgrading to 4.1.2 an attempt to bulk register a single user results in a empty oops template (/twiki/bin/oops/Main/RobFerguson?twiki_redirect_cache=a825166ddf1011d5dae8aaf1e198e93d) being displayed with no content (just header/footer). The user is entered into the Users page, but their personal page is not created. The user entry remains in the UnprocessedRegistrations topic and no report is produced.

Environment

When I try and register the user using the standard user registration page, I get the following oops (after entring the confirmation code):

Access Denied Attention

Access check on RobFerguson failed. Action "CHANGE": access not allowed on web.

Any ideas?

OK. I have moved this forward by adding TWikiRegistrationAgent to ALLOWCHANGEWEB in the Main web. Bulk Registration now creates the user topic, but only populates it with the user first name, surname, even though the email is in the UnprocessedBulkRegistrations table. Also after creating the user in the Users topic and the personal user topic, the process then just displays an empty page with just the header and does not remove the registration from the UnprocessedRegistrations topic nor report on success/failure. More ideas please?

Sorry, closing this question after more than 30 days of inactivity. Feel free to re-open if needed.
