P4DTI issue job000308

TitleNo error or warning when user mapping isn't one to one
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionIf two defect tracker users have the same e-mail address, the replicator can map them to the same Perforce user. This has several bad consequences: the owner of an issue (or any other user field) can change when it is replicated; or the replicator tries to update an issue on behalf of the wrong user.
The replicator should produce an error warning if the user mapping is not one to one.
Note that a common case of this may be the replicator Perforce user having the email address of the person who administrates a P4DTI installation.
AnalysisThe replicator shouldn't necessarily stop when this happens. Some user may have updated their e-mail address wrongly. What it should do is send a warning e-mail to the administrator and ensure that its internal mapping is actually one-to-one (that is, some users may not be translated until the problem is fixed).
Note that a solution to this job may also ameliorate job000203.
GDR 2001-07-17: When you fix this, please also fix job000316.
