Forum (board) visibility control / staff-only notes

Added by Dmitry Isanov over 11 years ago

Hi

I'm wondering if it's possible to prevent the Role/User from being able to see the Project forums.
Right now it appears that there's no access control option for that, just
- manage boards
- add message
- edit message
- delete message
No "view forum" or "view message".

I don't want a specific role even to see the board, or at least, have the messages invisible.

In fact, for me this could be a workaround to solve another task: to have notes/comments that are invisible for some Role (say, internal, staff-only project notes).
Is there any normal way to do that?

Thanks for help!
Dmitry

The best you're going to get right now is to create a private sub-project just to use the forums in it and lock people out of that.

However, I wouldn't do that just yet. I'd file a feature request to be able to have that access control and see what the ETA on it would be. It sounds like a very useful and simple check to add in, so I'd be surprised if it was anything more than an oversight at this point (or just something no one's asked for).

Well, I was thinking of doing it this way (create a separate project). However, it is efficient to have the hidden notes attached to the ticket, to have it at the finger tip. It's next to impossible to have the developer not just review his own ticket but also go to some other project, search if someone has put some comments there, etc.

The good idea is to place a feature request, I will do that, thanks, Adam.

With regards,

Is there any plan to progress this? It can be quite useful.

An even better granularity would so you can configure the permissions of a role per forum within a project.

Board permissions
Thanks for that, it does work indeed. Why is this permission granted by default??? Any plan of changing this in the trunk? If not why?

Thanks.
