Category:Custom fields
Target version:3.4.4
Resolution: Affected version:3.4.2


Even if my user account has all available roles (and is also an administrator), i am not able to download custom field file, unless custom field is configured as visible to any users.

I am getting a "403 - You are not authorized to access this page." error page when i am trying to download file (either from issue or custom query).

It does not occur when i add file as issue attachment.

My (bitnami) environment is :

  Redmine version                3.4.2.stable
  Ruby version                   2.3.4-p301 (2017-03-30) [x86_64-linux]
  Rails version                  4.2.8
  Environment                    production
  Database adapter               Mysql2
  Subversion                     1.9.5
  Cvs                            1.12.13
  Git                            2.7.4

  redmine_contacts               4.1.1
  redmine_issue_templates        0.1.7

The production.log file :

  • Status changed from New to Confirmed

I confirmed the problem.

This is due to source:tags/3.4.2/app/models/custom_value.rb#L46. attachments_visible? method checks the return value of IssueCustomField#visible. But it always returns false by design when "Visible" setting of the custom field is other than "to any users".

  def attachments_visible?(user)
    visible? && customized && customized.visible?(user)
