Different "Home" view?

Added by Brett Patterson over 8 years ago

I really like Redmine and have convinced the company I work for to utilize it (on a test-case basis for now). One thing we would love to see is the ability to restrict users to only see those projects to which they are associated. So anonymous/guests and non-members would not see any projects; while reporters, devs, managers, and any other member that is associated with a project will see a list of only those projects.

This would allow us to keep certain projects "hidden" from everyone and only revealing those projects to users that they need to see.

Anyone know of a plugin or patch that does this? Or is this a planned feature for 0.8.4 (wishful thinking) or 1.0? Knowing that it's coming would be a huge plus. But if I need to hack Redmine (and learn Ruby) for this feature and submit a patch, I'll do that (if I can).

Hi Brett,

you can make your project visible to only members like this:

  • in the administration->settings->Authentication set the flag Authentication required
  • in the administration->Roles and permissions
    • open Non member role and remove all permissions (then save)
    • open Anonymous role and remove all permissions (then save)
  • set projects to be not public and add members to the projects

that's it I think.

Cheers!
Oleg

Huh... must have done something wrong in the configuration.

Thanks.
