FirstSpirit ACCESS API retrieves wrong information for project <-> user memberships

Dear FirstSpirit community,

when using the FirstSpirit ACCESS-API to detect the membership of FirstSpirit users in FirstSpirit projects via:


the method returns "true" although:

  • a FirstSpirit user does not reside in the FirstSpirit project itsself
  • FirstSpirit server has been restarted completely

Do you know why? Is there a bug existing?

The user itsself is still physically available in FirstSpirit but it has been removed completely from a dedicated FirstSpirit project.

Kind regards,

Holger King

I assume the project is not "open for everyone". Is the user member of an "external group" of the mentioned project?

Hi Peter,

the user is a local user - not marked as "external".

What do you mean by "open for everyone"?

What do you mean by "open for everyone"?

The option labled "Allow all users" in project configurations.

Dear Peter,

you are right, the option "Allow all users" is enabled. See screenshot enclosed. That's why even FirstSpirit users not belonging to a project marked as "accessible for all users" are members of this project. So, the ACCESS-API returns "true" for "project.isMember(user)" here.


Is there a possibility to add this information to the FirstSpirit JavaDoc? Currently, there is no JavaDoc available at all - especially for this method.
