Private issues vs. private projects

Added by Jani Tiainen over 9 years ago

I've been testing Redmine to work with private developer data and semi-public customer data.

It works pretty nicely if you setup private and public projects and grant access by role. Only issue we found out was that if you have public subproject, it will still show private parent project in various places but of course when accessing it you get access denied.

So we had test structure like this:

  • Private developer project (devs + management)
    • Private management subproject (management only)
  • Public customer project (devs + management + customers)

So what's the real issue to have a private flag? How does it handle things differently apart from being in same project?
