copy a (sub-)project as "non-admin" user
|Category:||Permissions and roles|
I haven´t found a way or workaround for the follow task:
- a normal user is allowed to create any projects (maybe the project foo )
- this user where added to manager role for this project
- this user also can edit his created project
So far, so good.
But I found no way that this user can copy his created project unless he is no redmine-admin (I only found the copy-dialog for projects under administration menu point :-/Is it possible to set this right under roles ?
I only will allowed the user to get not permission denied error when he call http:// ... /projects/foo/copy
Possible destination places for the project copy seems for me:
- all subprojects of source-project
- root (copy as main-project)
- any project where user has permission to create/edit project (nice to have, but not really necessary)

There was already a plugin for deleting projects from their owner...
Delete Project plugin
Delete project is a plugin which adds an ACL to allow non-admin users to delete their own projects.

Latest release: 0.0.3, 2010-05-05
Compatible with: Redmine 0.9.3
Public SCM: n/a
Public ITS: n/a
But this is still offline (while only for 0.x version).I can imagine that both features has the same logic (for verify permission).

I got a dirty workaround which works for me:
somewhere between line 20 and 30:
# CB: 2013-04-15 nachfolgend die Beschränkung, dass nur ein Admin ein Projekt kopieren kann, entfernt. # # old: before_filter :authorize_global, :only => [:new, :create, :copy] # old: before_filter :require_admin, :only => [ :copy, :archive, :unarchive, :destroy ] before_filter :authorize_global, :only => [:new, :create ] before_filter :require_admin, :only => [ :archive, :unarchive, :destroy ]
now every user is abled to copy projects by entering the follows URL:
- http: //localhost/redmine/projects/PROJECT_HE_IS_INVOLVED/ copy
note: dirty workaround, because every user can copy every project when he knows the internal project-id. By copying a project in which the user isn´t involved, he also has no access to the copy of the project as long he didn´t set the flag 'public project' by copying :-/
