Ticket #2959 (new defect)

Changing a Group's name through the action api disassociates it from its datasets in the index

  • Create a new Group, named "test-group".
  • Add a dataset to it.
  • Verify the dataset belongs to the group by visiting the Group's read-page
  • Update the Group through the action api (group_update), using the uid in the "id" field, and a new name in the "name" field.
  • Visit the group's read-page. The list of datasets will be empty.

This was an issue when editing a Group through the web interface, which was fixed in [1]. However it only fixes the issue in the group controller.
