Description

Extra permissions that are added via a model show up as "app | model | permission" in the admin backend for the auth app but can only be accessed as "app.permission". So they should show up as "app | permission" as there can't be two permissions with the same name in different models of the same app.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

(The following is a paraphrase of jkocherans's comments on this ticket during the sprint)

Closing this as WONTFIX since from a display point of view, the name of the permission is entirely user-controlled, and they may not include information that indicates what model the permission is based off of, making it hard to identify what the permission applies to.
