Magento Role Resources not saving

I have a new install of the Magento community edition (1.6) on a Mac PHP 5.3 installation. I am unable to get it to save Role Resources.

When I go to the Admin panel, then System->Web Services->Roles, and change to All (or choose anything custom) and click Save Role, it will say it has saved. However, going back into the settings shows nothing was actually saved. Occassionally a duplicate role will be created as well.

I have just wiped everything clean, dropped the magento database and set everything back up from scratch and it doesn't make any difference. Any ideas?

I looked at that thread. Unfortunately they list it as "fixed" as of 1.3, but I'm on 1.6 and still have the issue.

Enable Logging and see if anything is logged. There may be an error thrown, that will show up in the logs. Report back what you find.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

I've had logging turned on under Developer->Log Settings for a while, it's not generating anything for this issue.

Do you have any add-on modules installed?
If so I would try disabling them, then see if this issue still exists. To disable edit the file for the module in /app/etc/modules/moduleFile.xml


Then you should see a line like
<active>true</active>

Open in new window


change it to
<active>false</active>

Open in new window


Clear/disable cache and try saving the permissions again.

It appears that part of the issue is they've renamed the columns in the api_rule table and made "permissions" and "privileges" now "api_permissions" and "api_privileges". But this renaming was apparently incomplete since the web page doesn't pay attention to those columns. Manually renaming the columns back makes the web page work properly, but I haven't tested the actual effect on the operation of Magento.
