Fixed: Roster system in automation
« on: August 30, 2015, 12:13:44 AM »
A few things to know:

  • I've never used it before myself (it was written by Bassplayer in 2004), so we will all be learning its quirks together
  • From an automation and league perspective, it is best used right now for two things:
    • Listing your team's pilots for NBT purposes (as discussed in the meetings)
    • Allowing finer-grained access to various parts of your unit's automation than is possible with just the "keys" handed out this weekend. For example, you can allow drop commanders access to the battle logging system without granting them access to the jumpship or planet management tools

    All other functionality in there should still work, play around with it and find out. Unless there are security-related bugs, however, I likely will not be spending much time fixing the non-critical stuff.
  • There is a FAQ in the roster admin page -- please review it.
  • There are two ways to add pilots
    • Manually in the roster admin page in your automation
    • Have your pilots "apply" from your unit's individual detail page accessible from "Unit Listings". Yes, it's a bit odd since they are already on your team, but this spreads the work around (work smarter, not harder! :)).
    Note that ANYONE who "applies" for your unit via the second method is AUTOMATICALLY added to your roster, albeit in an "Inactive" state. I find this "feature" ill-conceived, but then (a) I didn't write it and do not know the rationale, and (b) will not be changing it. I suggest that you set your unit's applications to "Enabled" long enough for your players to "join", then put it back to Disable (which is the default -- so you will need to Enable it from your Roster Configuration button in your automation).

Bassplayer, if you are still out there playing and can see this -- please post here so that they can ask you questions instead. :p

Also note -- the forums integration is not yet active, so setting unit leaders in the roster does not yet automatically add/remove access to unit leader forums (there's nothing going on there yet anyway). I hope to figure that out this week (SMF does have a couple of ways to do so without having to write directly to the SMF tables...which is what was necessary with the previous phpBB3 forums).

League starmap does not display for users created inside the automation... Shows a black screen with broken submit query links in the top left corner.. Admin can see it, all other created users given access thru pilot security cannot.

I am not able to reproduce this -- I created a pilot for myself on your roster, gave myself permission to see the unit starmap, and was able to see it without problems.

Can you email me screenshots of what they see?

Question: I think this was answered in the Q&A but, is the roster system in the automation required for all the pilots or will the roster list here in to forums work? Just having a little trouble setting up the system in the automation, so it may take me a little bit to get that part working.

For now lets stay with the listing here as primary, but ideally, we would move to the automation system shortly.

So. you login as the user, click on League Starmap, and you do indeed see the default zoomed out map... Next though, click on view new map or reset map, (with or without even changing anything else)... and you end up with this:

OK I think Gonta may be having this same problem, the fact that it is happening with a pilot login instead of admin may help me sort out his issue too, thanks!
