Deleting an endorsement returns an error: jade-bad-content
Closed, ResolvedPublic


  1. Go to
  2. Expand "alternatives".
  3. Try to delete the endorsement by "Halfak"
  4. Click "delete endorsement" in the confirmation dialog
  5. Get an error.

This is what I see in the console.

   "info":"Jade Entity doesn't conform to schema: Error validating /facets/editquality/proposals/0/endorsements: Object value found, but an array is required",

I wonder if this is also a problem for moving another person's endorsement. That should be prevented and an error should make it clear why it is not possible to move someone else's endorsement.

I have pushed a patchset for this issue. Turns out User A was able to delete an endorsement created by User A but was not able to delete an endorsement created by User B. Now User A is able to delete an endorsement created by User B.

Aha! The move endorsement relies on matching your logged-in (or not) user status with an endorsement in order to move it. So the only way to move someone else's endorsement is to long in as them. So that's perfect and we don't need to worry about that.
