Hello,

We are running 9.3.0 currently. Our Visual Cron server is used by multiple different departments. We separate permissions using Group Permissions so that one department cannot edit the jobs of another department to avoid any issues coming up. We revoke permissions when creating the new job on a per job basis. The other day, we had a user who was trying to add a Flow to a task for On Error to send notifications. He noticed the option to "Add To All Existing" and clicked the button thinking it would be done just to the local job he was working on. It instead added the Flow to every job that we have. The odd thing is that he should not have permissions to edit the majority of the jobs on the server, but this was still added to every task. Is this a bug that allows him to be able to do this? I would like to see this fixed as we cannot have every user have the ability to edit every job by accidentally clicking a button.

Willing to provide any other information that is necessary.

Thanks,

Austin.

Thanks for reporting this. I've notified our developers about it and we'll get back to you here once we've fixed that.

I think a good description of what that does would be great. I have done that before too not realizing it meant "all" jobs. If there could be an option to add a specific flow to all Tasks in the Active job that would be nice
