A user can edit environment scoped variable

I have 2018.3.8 version installed.

  1. "Test project with tenanted deployment enabled
  2. Two environments - “Env 1” and “Env1”
  3. “Tenant 1” associated with the Project and and both environments
  4. A variable defined in “Project Templates”
  5. Two roles defined:
    4.1. “Test Editor with” “VariableEdit” and “TenantEdit” permissions granted
    4.2. “Test Reviewer” with “EnvironmentView”, “ProjectView”, “TenantView” and “VariableView” permissions granted.
  6. Team “Test Editor” with Test Editor role assigned and scoped to the project, “Test” environment and “Tenant 1”.
  7. Team “Test Reviewer” with VariableViewer role assigned and scoped to the project, both “Test” and “Prod” environments and “Tenant 1”.
  8. A user assigned to both teams.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Login as the user
  2. Go to the Tenant Variables page
  3. Try editing the defined variable for “Prod” environment

Expected behavior: production environment variable cannot be changed or the change cannot be saved because the user has “VariableView” permission on for Prod environment.
Observer behavior: the variable can be changed and the change can be saved.

See the permissions exported csv file as well:

Permissions_export_2018_04_11__20_29_18_UTC.csv (325 Bytes)

I checked the release notes for the later releases - I could not find anything that looks like this issue.

I hope it’ll help you guys fix this issue as soon as possible. We are struggling with all kind of different permissions related issues that came with the versions released during past few months.
