2790061 - I edited a blog or event but my name does not show as the updater.


User 'B' edits a blog post or event. However the blog or event creator is still displayed as the updater of the blog, not user 'B'



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to 'content' section in an SAP Jam Group
  2. Edit an existing blog 


This is by design.

  • Events and Blogs are both content types that are only ever editable by the author, group administrators, and in the case of Blogs the designated authors.
  • Because these types are not "collaborative" types, meaning despite the group's collaboration policy only the author and group admins can edit the type, SAP Jam will always will display the original author as both the creator and updater of the object.

"Only the event host can invite others, edit, delete, and restore their own events."

"When non-group administrators and non-blog post approver group members view a published blog post, the name of the group member that the blog post is written on behalf always displays as the author; the name of the ghost writer never displays to group members once the blog post is published."
