If you add a pattern to add a handful of builds to a permission, they will appear to be added. If you then check the builds and their effective permissions, the permission will not be added. If you manually move the build or provide the exact pattern when manually moving the build, the effective permission is correct for that specific build.
Artifactory 6.17 and deploy two builds, build-1 and build-2.
Create a permission target and under add build, include the pattern build**. You will see both builds get moved to the "Included Builds" column.
Check the effective permissions and notice this permission target is not under the effective permissions.
Head back to the same permission target and remove the pattern. Manually drag and drop the two builds. The patterns will be added and now the effective permissions are correct.
Users need a way to add multiple builds via a common pattern and this does not work.
