Description

5 years ago
On eg:
https://treeherder.mozilla.org/admin/auth/user/8/

Permissions...

Active: "Designates whether this user should be treated as active. Unselect this instead of deleting accounts."

Staff status: "Designates whether the user can log into this admin site."

Superuser status: "Designates that this user has all permissions without explicitly assigning them."

-> I tried to give Sylvestre access to the admin panel for bug 1051508, so following the descriptions above, I checked "Staff status", however that wasn't sufficient for him to be able to access:
https://treeherder.mozilla.org/admin/model/jobtype/

Either the description for staff is wrong, or else the permissions required for https://treeherder.mozilla.org/admin/model/jobtype/ are not correct.
