Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Dear WordPress experts,

We are experiencing a weird behavior preventing to edit tags / categories and publishing / updating posts. We believe it occurs when global_terms_enabled is on and some tags and categories share the same value.

Our environment:

  • WordPress Multisite 5.1.1 (actually, we've been using it and upgrading it for years and years)
  • Table sitecategories defined
  • In table sitemeta, global_terms_enabled is set to 1

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create a new category "My category" THEN
  • Create a new tag "My tag" THEN
  • Create a new category with the same name of an existing tag, let's say "My tag" THEN
  • Create a new tag with the same name of an existing category, let's say "My category"

Now it will break if you do the following:

  • Edit the category "My tag" with the name of an existing tag, you'll get "You need a higher level of permission. Sorry, you are not allowed to edit this item."
  • Edit the tag "My category" with the name of an existing category, you'll get "You need a higher level of permission. Sorry, you are not allowed to edit this item."
  • Create / edit a content and assign the category "My tag" (with the name of an existing tag) or assign the tag "My category" (with the name of an existing category) and you'll get a 403 error with the response
    {"code":"rest_cannot_assign_term","message":"Sorry, you are not allowed to assign the provided terms.","data":{"status":403}}
    

May be related to #46297

Thank you.

Best regards.
