Currently it seems only administrators can edit Phabricator forms (T164356#3317503). However, it'd be benefitial to allow others than administrators to manage specific forms so teams using them can amend them without the need of bothering administrators. I guess this requires Phabricator (Upstream). Thanks.
Unfortunately, yes this requires upstream changes. I actually spent quite a bit of time looking into this and I haven't been able to figure out which part of the phabricator code is enforcing this or how I would go about changing it.
If you do this:
- Applications → Maniphest / Configure → Edit Policies → Can Configure Application and set it to "Administrators, and also Alice (who is not an administrator)"
...where does Alice hit a permissions error? It seemed to work for me locally when I did it just now, but maybe I didn't do the right thing.
I'm happy to take a look at this if someone with access has a chance to figure out where it isn't working on your end -- my expectation is that it's supposed to work, but I could definitely have overlooked something.
Thanks - this is "our fault". On https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/applications/edit/PhabricatorHeraldApplication/ , Can Configure Application is set to Administrators. Changing that would likely first require some concept of managing groups and groups' membership in WMF...
