I have to reset the field permissions every time I edit a field. Resets to default (no access) after every save.

You wouldn't happen to be using the contrib module Login Toboggan, do you? I'm investigation a problem that sounds like yours and I've tracked it down to Login Toboggan.

Yes I am using it.

Just for reference, it sounds like there's another conflict with LoginToboggan too: #1407564: CSS conflict with logintoboggan, prevents using Custom Permissions (field_permissions module)

But if I understand this issue correctly they are actually not the same bug...

Hello there!

I am having the same issues on our site. However, I'm not using LoginToboggan. Do you have any other suggestions on what this could be?

Status: Active » Postponed (maintainer needs more info)

If anyone is experiencing the same thing now, could you provide more information here? A few things could be happening.

Some questions:

- Do other settings on the field save properly? -- Label, Help text, Number of values, etc?
- If you set the permission to "Public" or "Private" do those options stay (in other words, is this purely an issue with the "Custom Permissions" option?
- Do the settings seem to work otherwise? (Are custom permissions applied, even if they're forgotten?)
- Is there any chance you're trying to save the permissions on a per-instance level, instead of a per-field level? (In other words, saving a Body field as "public" on Articles, then seeing values overridden for the Body field on a Page.)

I have a 'List (text)' field on a RedHen Contact (7.x-1.12) entity type. I also have LoginToboggan (7.x-1.5) enabled/configured. I've tested editing the Label, 'Help text', 'Default Value', and 'Allowed values list'. All these actions remove the custom permissions I had setup.

In Console, I get this Error when I have the edit page open for the list field:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'preAuthID' of undefined

Other details that may help:
Core (7.52)
Field Permission (7.x-1.0-beta2)
I also have jQuery Update (7.x-2.7) configured to use jQuery 1.8 for frontend and default for backend/admin

Hi granticusiv

Have you tried applying the patch from https://www.drupal.org/node/1365764#comment-10286257 ? That preAuth error points to that.

Also, the 7.x-1.0 full release of Field Permissions is a more recent version and should at least warn you if you are getting this console error (and not lose your permissions). Can you try upgrading and see if that helps?

I am experiencing this issue too. When I resave my field settings the permissions get reset. My changes (help text, default value, etc.) get saved. After each resave I need to set permissions again.

My setup:

- version 7.10 of field permission
- latest drupal core
- behaviour appears for text field
- other field related modules installed: field group, form tips, dependent fields, field default token, node limit

Maybe one of these other modules causes the issue?

@ThuleNB -- are you seeing any javascript errors on the page?

I'll check out the module with those other modules to see if I can replicate. I suspect that it's conflicting JS.

Thanks for your quick reply. I am not much of a coder but tried to look for a JS error and recognized that one:

TypeError: Drupal.settings.LoginToboggan is undefined

Shame on me, this was already mentioned above. I'll follow the related issue for LoginToboggan and see if it solves things for me.
