      Pipeline Input Step: 2.9

    Description

      I use the following snippet in my DSL pipeline

      operators = "ldapUserGroup"
      ChoiceParameterDefinition choice = new ChoiceParameterDefinition('continue', ['YES'] as String[], 'Description')
      returnValue = input message: 'DEPLOY ?', 
                          parameters: [choice], 
                          submitter: operators, 
                          submitterParameter: 'approver'
      

      I am not part of the ldapUserGroup thus I would expect the pipeline not to continue. However the pipeline continues anyway.

      07:39:05 Approved by Surname Lastname
      [Pipeline] }
      

      The same happens if i use a particular userID or list of userIDs rather than an ldapGroup

      operators = "userID0001,userID0002"
      ChoiceParameterDefinition choice = new ChoiceParameterDefinition('continue', ['YES'] as String[], 'Description')
      returnValue = input message: 'DEPLOY ?', 
                          parameters: [choice], 
                          submitter: operators, 
                          submitterParameter: 'approver'

            Hi, I've run into the same issue as being an Administrator allows me to approve my own processes. In my case this a problem, because I'm trying to implement a system where an additional administrator needs to approve the process, and the one that is requesting the process run is actually not in the list of the approvers acceptable. However, because of the issue mentioned above, this still allows the user to approve the process.

            atzimler that could be an interesting scenario. Perhaps adding an option to allow/disallow admin in addition to the submitter list could do the trick. dnusbaum Do you think it's valuable to re-open this ticket or creating a new one? (or "refusing the scenario", also an option).

            To me, it still seems pointless, because an admin could always approve the input indirectly through tools like the script console with their elevated permissions, or create a new job that does what they want, and just run that. Anyone with admin permissions should be considered trusted, and if you do not trust them, then they should not be an admin. If you do trust them, then this just seems like something to be enforced socially by making sure the message for the input requests that a different admin approve the input.

            Hi, I've worked around the issue with actually adding cycles into the groovy description of the pipeline. I just wanted to add a note on the fact that for my scenario is not a trust issue, it is more of avoiding potential accidents with production systems. Our admin team can freely adjust the build process too, but we are responsible and don't do that either for the purpose of circumventing protective measures.
