ISSUE: Changes made in the Spectrum Event Configuration Editor are not taking affect on Linux. A new event is configured or a change is made to an existing event and then saved. No errors are displayed. Shut down the Event Configuration Editor and then open it again and the changes are not there anymore.
CAUSE: File permissions and ownership of the $SPECROOT/custom/Events directories and files.
RESOLUTION: Out of the box, the $SPECROOT/custom/Events directories and files are owned by the user that owns the Spectrum installation configured at installation time. The following examples show out of the box permissions on the files and the installation owner in this instance is user spectrum:
The $SPECROOT/custom directory:
drwxrwxrwx. 13 spectrum spectrum 4096 Jan 21 16:44 custom
The $SPECROOT/custom/Events directory:
drwxrwxrwx. 4 spectrum spectrum 4096 Feb 1 12:58 Events
The files and directories inside the $SPECROOT/custom/Events directory:
