The issue you are facing:
Whoever is signed in, cannot edit their own user account under the “Users” management page. I could edit other accounts, and I elevated another user to admin, then they could edit other accounts, including my admin account (e.g. add me to a group) but they couldn’t edit their own, and when signed in as my account there was no pencil icon to click to edit my own User entry.
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Yes
I can confirm this behavior. As soon as I put another user into the “admin” group, this user becomes able to edit all other users except himself. However, the “admin” account is still able to edit this user.
To a certain extend this behavior makes sense, thereby preventing an administrator to remove himself from the “admin” group. If this was not prevented, one could easily lock himself out of administration completely. But on the other hand this introduces other problems like preventing one to set a quota for the “admin” account:
yep, me too, NC18.0.1, php 7.3.15
Very annoying as an admin can create a group but then can’t add herself to it without having another admin user and logging out/in or using impersonate.
Needs fixing before 18.0.2 published
Hi, have the same Problem with NC 18.0.3 - Added a new group video but as admin I cannot join myself to the group. Need to create a 2nd user with admin rights to put my original account to the new group.
Please prioritize this bug!
