[SOLVED] Asignees not showing up for MergeRequests (from fork)

Hi everyone,

my GitLab (CE) installation was recently upgraded from 7.7.2 to 7.10.4. Unluckily there seems to be an issue with existing forks, the requesters get a strange behaviour when trying to select a assignee for their merge requests, since not the owners/masters of the target projects are shown, but usually only themselves or some users who isn’t really involved in the target project. The logfiles don’t show any errors on selection.

I can’t really exclude that some misconfiguration happened during the update, we run our instance on an Ubuntu LTS 14.x, using a MySQL database on the same machine.

Any ideas on what happens here are greatly appreciated.


As of 7.11.4 this problem is known an persists. It is currently fixed in the master branch, as stated here: https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/issues/9332
