  69386   Wed Jul 21 16:16:29 2021 Question Alan Grantagrant@winnipeg.caQuestionWindows3.1.4Logging Main page entries, each with multiple ongoing events

Is there any way to log child events on the detail pages for a fixed number of entries on the main page? For example, I have 15 vehicles to enter on the main page, ID'd by Vehicle Number. Within each of those entries I will be logging ongoing repair service entries with certain attributes.

So how might I design this concept without having repeating vehicle entries on the main page for every service event, and preferably without splitting the information between two linked logbook tabs?

Hi, 

I have a logbook with guest access and guest can also enter a new entry (in config: Guest List Menu commands = New, Find, Select, Login). For other reason in a global section, I put 

Deny New = account1, account2

This somehow invalidates Guest List Menu commands, since as guest I don't see New button anymore. Is this behaviour desired? Otherwise, I would need to move Deny option to plenty of individual logbook configs. Just to explain the reason, those accounts are set up to only read entries and not to create new ones. Or maybe you can suggest a different solution?

Best

Thanks for the merge.
I found a more general solution, as there could be the posibility to have the author as "select" or "radio box" input in the form, where the fix breaks.
But I think in most of the cases the author is a preset input, if used with "restrict edit = 1", so the merged fix should be fine.

Today we ran into this issue again, but this time the curpit was encoding...
The author name in the password file was differently encoded as the author name from the xhr request.
For this instance there was a umlaut in the name.

I haven't got a good solution for this at the moment.
The workaround is to check the encording in the password file and make it matching.
But as for automated logins / user generation e.g. via LDAP (in our case) one should be aware of this issue.

I can verify to get the same error message in this elog forum in the browser console.

What do you mean by "root" user?
The elog can have serveral admin users, but this behaviour is equal for admin and non-admin users.
You should not run the elog server as user "root" of the machine for security reason, but also for issues with file permissions.
