Changing field permissions doesn't affect all users
|Category:||Permissions and roles|
We've been using Redmine for half a year and a little time ago have decided to change some workflow stuff.
At the 'Field Permissions' tab we have made some fields required for certain roles. But we've noticed that the changes didn't apply to all users of this role.
After investigating we've found out that this issue applies only for administrators accounts. Is that correct that administrators can leave required fields blank?
We don't have an administrator in our team, so project manager has administrator access to Redmine. And also this PM creates tasks so it's crucial for us that workflow should also apply to PM's account discarding it's administrator's status.
Environment: Redmine version 2.3.0.stable.11715 Ruby version 2.0.0 (x86_64-linux) Rails version 3.2.13 Environment production Database adapter Mysql2 Redmine plugins: redmine_mylyn_connector 2.8.2.stable

yes this is the right behaviour.
An Administrator must be able to clean out values from some fields, even if he don't know what the right value for this fields is.
The normal behaviour is, that only a few persons has admin privileges. In the best case on separate user accounts.
Admins will bypass every restriction.
