Description

If we create a local data package (with some data file) with public access in
one profile, and try to open that package from another profile, Morpho is
unable to retrieve that data file and hence displays a blank table.

Morpho looks for the data file in the data directory of the current profile,
while the data file is actually in the directory of the created profile.

History

#1 Updated by Dan Higgins about 15 years ago

The real bug here is the fact that metadata from other profiles is visible, not
that data files are not!
The idea was to pseparate the information of different users, at least logically
even when it is stored locally. I think the bug occurs because currently open
packages are not closed when the profile is changed. The metadata stays in local
caches while Morpho is running. These caches should be flushed when the profile
is changed (i.e. information is not meant to be shared between profiles except
through the access-controlled network.

I cannot open a datapackage from a different profile than my current profile. Closing.
