The webui restore form currently does not read out your definded where (acl) directive, it just gives you a default by its own which you can edit.

Note: The where acl is taken into account by the dird itself after you hit restore. So you can not write into a place you are not allowed to.

However, this could/should be improved in future releases.

This explanation isn't clear to me. I did two tests with Bareos 16.2.4:
(1) Job file contains "Where = /tmp/bareos-restores2" and the GUI displays the default "/tmp/bareos-restores". The restored files end up in "/tmp/bareos-restores".
(2) Job file contains "Where = /tmp/bareos-restores2", the GUI displays the default and I changed it to "/tmp/bareos-restores3". The restored files end up in "/tmp/bareos-restores3".

In short: the contents of the where clause in the job definition are ignored and only the destination specified on the GUI is used.

Cleaning up bugs entries.
No further action will be done on this part of the code without a community PR.

The content of the where shown in the webui will win.
