Subscription Bug? V.2.1

Hi to all
Bug in Subscription (v.2.1)

(I try to explain in "my poor english"...)

1) Create subscription manager
2) Create type of subscription (online)
3) Subscription -> select subscriber -> subscribe one user
4) Assign type of subscription (online, date ecc)

TEST= All OK, only user subscribed view pdf (other user no see)

5) subscription manager -> delete subscriber (same user point 3 obviously)

Now no user subscriber.

TEST= NO OK, the previous user subscribed (and deleted) view pdf, like if it were subscribed.

I check the rights in Site setup step 2:
Article Access
Unregistered users can view the full text of published articles.
X Users must log in to view the full text of published articles.

and in Editor -> Issue data:
Access
Access status (Subscription)
Open access date (Year 2026)

and now? Solutions?

For Alec: if this is a bug, what is the field in SQL database for "hand" unsubscribe a selected user?

TIA, Grazie

Hi Magius,

Is your subscribed user a Journal Manager, Editor, Section Editor, Layout Editor, Copyeditor, Proofreader, or Subscription Manager? Anyone in one of these roles is assumed to have access to the journal as if they were a subscribed user.

Hi Magius,

No problem. FYI, you can modify this behavior by changing the entries in the $subscriptionAssumedRoles array in classes/issue/IssueAction.inc.php about line 78:
Code: Select all
$subscriptionAssumedRoles = array(
        ROLE_ID_JOURNAL_MANAGER,
        ROLE_ID_EDITOR,
        ROLE_ID_SECTION_EDITOR,
        ROLE_ID_LAYOUT_EDITOR,
        ROLE_ID_COPYEDITOR,
        ROLE_ID_PROOFREADER,
        ROLE_ID_SUBSCRIPTION_MANAGER
);
