Virtual role: Creator in VPP not working

If you set up a Versioning VPP fil system in EpiServer 6R2 the role creator will not work. This is becasue it’s not in the ACL.

There is a fix for it, but it will only work for the creator of the folder. You need to use this code as your VPP provider instead of the orgianal VirtualPathVersioningProvider.

Code Snippet
  1. public class VirtualPathVersioningProviderOwn : EPiServer.Web.Hosting.VirtualPathVersioningProvider
  2. {
  3.     public VirtualPathVersioningProviderOwn(string name, NameValueCollection configParameters)
  4.         : base(name, configParameters) { }
  5.     public override System.Web.Hosting.VirtualDirectory GetDirectory(string virtualPath)
  6.     {
  7.         var cat = base.GetDirectory(virtualPath);
  8.         var cat2 = cat as VersioningDirectory;
  9.         if (cat2 != null)
  10.         {
  11.             if (cat2.ACL.IsReadOnly)
  12.                 return cat;
  13.             if (cat2.DirectoryHandler != null && cat2.DirectoryHandler.InternalItem != null)
  14.                 cat2.ACL.Creator = cat2.DirectoryHandler.InternalItem.CreatedBy;
  15.         }
  17.         return cat;
  18.     }
  19. }
