Summary0000704: When updating from 15.2, the bareos-dir webui profile does not allow all required commands for the webui
DescriptionThe bareos-dir webui profile, that comes with bareos-15.2 ( only allow a subset of commands required for bareos-webui 16.2.

Moreover, the CommandACL .bvfs_* is no proper regex and therefore not longer valid. It should be .bvfs_.*
Steps To ReproduceInstall bareos-15.2, including the bareos-webui.

Add the bareos-16.2 repository (or nightly) and update to bareos >= 16.2.0.

While it initially looks as if bareos-webui is working, the pages (especially the restore browser) show no information.
Additional InformationFix (for bareos-15.2 default installation and update to bareos-16.2, without migrating the configuration to Subdirectory Configuration Scheme):

In /etc/bareos/bareos-dir.conf

A good automatic fix for this is not easily possible.

However, this behaviour must be mentioned in the Bareos release notes.

If some permission is missing, this functionality can be hidden from the webui and a hint presented to the user.

Additionally a new view helper has been introduced to centralize the ACL alert
message which is displayed when the given Command ACL does not fit the


Also upgrading webui from 15.2 to 16.2 and the differences between such versions regarding the Command ACL have been documented in the official bareos documentation.
