Simple logic bug in calculate dependencies. When no roles are used in the filter, there are no dependencies.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. From /admin/structure/views/add, create a view showing "Users" and click "Save and edit"
  2. Add the User -> Roles filter (description text is "Roles that a user belongs to" as there are two User -> Roles filters...)
  3. In the "Configure filter" dialog, select "Is one of" and select "Administrator" under "Options", click Apply
  4. Edit the filter settings again, this time select either "Only has the 'authenticated user' role" or "Has roles in addition to 'authenticated user'" for empty and not-empty, respectively
  5. Save the filter settings and save the view
  6. Navigate to /admin/config/development/configuration/single/export and pull up the config for the view created in step #1

The export will show

    - user.role.administrator

which is incorrect. Note that unselecting the Administrator role will remove the config dependency.

Proposed resolution

Do not return any dependencies for empty/not-empty operators.

Remaining tasks

Add tests.

User interface changes


API changes


Data model changes

Code looks good! Needs work for not having a test.

You should be able to pull it off rather easily by adding to \Drupal\Tests\user\Kernel\Views\HandlerFilterRolesTest::testDependencies()

While attempting to provide tests I was unable to reproduce the issue. I was unable to find the empty/not empty operator in the filter. Could you add steps to reproduce?

Test looks good. +1 to RTBC.

Add a test for not empty too.

I've verified the patch in #11 using the STR in the issue summary and the config dependency is removed as expected. We've got a patch, we've got tests, I say we're RTBC.

Yup, looks good. Nice work!

Somebody who worked on this may be able to resolve the conflict in #2846614: Incorrect field name is used in views integration for multi-value base fields that this introduced.
