How to access SVN repositories with proper rights
I'd like to know if there's a way to make the users of a Redmine portal access SVN repositories with the rights associated to the Active Directory account they use to log on Redmine in the first place.
In the solution I've been able to put online so far, it's the general admin account who connects to the SVN repositories from Redmine regardless of the user logged on the portal, making everybody able to see things they shouldn't in some cases.
Any guess, insight, experience sharing, etc. will be very much appreciated.
You can use ad (redmine ldap extension is ad compatible) to authenticate redmine users login against ad server.
Then use this plugin to sync ad group into redmine, where you can give every group any role on any project.
This way you can e.g define a ad group "project x devlopers" and give this group in redmine a role with right to modify/watch source code.
Or you can give a ad group "all developer" in all redmine project the devlopers role in redmine.
In short words. What you want is possible.
