433 ↗(On Diff #24189)

I guess perhaps headers are case-insensitive, but elsewhere in the app we use User-Agent

Can we actually just get this from viewer.userAgent?

435 ↗(On Diff #24189)

What happens if the user logs in as a staff user, but then logs out and logs back in as a non-staff? (Or vice versa?) Seems like it can get messy... is there any way to determine this on the client instead?

444 ↗(On Diff #24189)

Can you explain in more detail why you need this to be determined on the keyserver and passed in from there? Why can't we decide this on the client?

182–185 ↗(On Diff #24189)

Can we use browser-detect, which we already use elsewhere in our codebase?

move logic to client-side

Thanks, @ashoat. You identified a severe issue with doing it on the keyserver. Moving logic to client-side

11 ↗(On Diff #24551)

win 11 is still detected as 11 due to the old kernel version (issue).

I didn't include older windows versions as they're not officially supported by Microsoft anymore.

16–23 ↗(On Diff #24551)

based on caniuse

16 ↗(On Diff #24551)

this is possible:

import { Browser } from 'detect-browser';


export const DB_SUPPORTED_BROWSERS: $ReadOnlyArray<Browser> = [

but to do that we need to add flow types for detect-browser

11 ↗(On Diff #24551)

@kamil meant "detected as 10" here I think (based on linked issue)

37–38 ↗(On Diff #24551)

I would replace this with:

if (!isDev && (!currentLoggedInUserID || !isStaff(currentLoggedInUserID))) {
  return false;
40–43 ↗(On Diff #24551)

And then this could be:

return DB_SUPPORTED_OS.includes(browser.os)

yeah, I had "detected as 10" in mind, sorry for confusion
