#1368 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Reload permissions when the refresh button is clicked

In many cases the permissions are confusing for the users and users do not know when they have to reload permissions. What users do is to try to refresh the view so why not reload permission together with the refresh? Would it be too expensive to do this automatically when the refresh button is used?

Will this really be necessary if #1367 is fixed?

Replying to nicklas:

I think this targets another use case. When I change a permission where another user gets more permissions he needs to reload his permissions. It is easy but not all users realize that but normally tries to reload the page.

Then the reload function needs a complete redesign. Currently it is simply a javascript in the browser that executes 'location.reload()' which leads to a request identical to the original being sent to server. Eg. there is no way that we currently can detect on the server side if a request is the result of "normal" request or a "reload" request.

This is the use case that lead to the 'Reload permissions' function being developed. I don't think the 'reload page' function should interfere with it.
