Allow watchers to comment on issue

Added by Willmore BattleShipNet over 1 year ago

I would like to allow watchers to comment on issue they are watching even if they are not on that project. What do I have to do in redmine to enable this? Thank you.

Go into Administration > Roles & Permissions > Non Member and check the option Add notes in the "Issue Tracking" section.

Thank you, this worked not completely. Worked only for "Project" that is "Is public". No way to enable for "Non public" project? :)

I reproduced your described behavior and it seems that there's no possibility to enable it.
Furthermore, relating to #16133 it seems to be a defect that you can add "Non Member" users as watchers to the issue.

There is a plugin "extended watchers" which allows you to provide watcher-functionality to non-members of non-public projects. Thus a non-member will neither see the project nor any tickets until he/she is added as watcher to a ticket. From now on the project and only this specific ticket is visible. Works great.

Drawbacks:
  • the "overview" is no more the full truth: there may be "watchers" also being able to see the project/selected tickets
  • other plugins (like "all files") do not honor the restriction and show - possibly - everything of the project

cheers
