    Rest service addAuthor to draft document doesn't appear to work

      Hey all,

       

      I am creating a document in draft state via the createDocumentInContainer rest service and then attempting to add additional authors so that other people can edit the document before publishing.  When I call addAuthor I get a 200 response with this body:

      <ns2:addAuthorResponse xmlns:ns2="http://jivesoftware.com/clearspace/webservices" />

      However, I am still only able to view and edit the document as the user who created the document and not as the user I attempted to add via the call to addAuthor.

       

      This may be the same issue that is documented here:

      Add Author appears not to work via REST Web Services

       

      That discussion lists a bug number, but I don't know if there is a way for me to view or track that issue.  It is also a fairly old discussion (2010) so I would hope this issue would have been resolved, but I don't see any way to do it still.

       

      Is there a way to add additional authors to a draft state document via the rest API?

       

      Thanks,

      Sam
