bug in user import logic

Postby jhallida » Wed Jul 11, 2012 12:26 pm

Hi, I think I have discovered a bug or inconsistency in the way users are imported into OJS via the XML user import plugin.

The problem is that when users are imported that already exist in the system, only that users roles and interests change. Other changes (such as signature, private note, phone number, name, etc.) will not stick even though no error is thrown.

It looks like the problem stems from a bug in plugins/importexport/users/UserXMLParser.inc.php, in the ImportUsers() method. Surely this is not the expected behavior when importing users that already exist?
