Private issues (#7414).

History

#1 Updated by Damien Couderc over 3 years ago

Shouldn't issue #337 be linked or closed in favor of this new issue ?

#2 Updated by Dalibor Filus over 3 years ago

I'm singing up for this feature too...

I would suggest (if I can :) ) if it would be user group-based?

details:
For example, we have group Clients (which are in each project different set of people),
and in one project, we have issues that are only for group Developers...
Client MUSTN'T see them, because they contain confidental information (tickets shared with other dev group)...

I'm up for group-based permission per-ticket...
I don't know what you mean by permission-based privileges (haven't read the whole ticket #337, it's so damn long) :)

#3 Updated by Ryan Cross over 3 years ago

Why not use the same interface paradigm as the notifications?

I would also like to add groups to that though too.

#12 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 3 years ago

  • File private_issue.png added
  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Resolution set to Fixed

Feature added in r5466.

Two new permissions are now available:

  • Set issues public or private => will let the user set/change the private flag on issues that he creates or edits
  • Set own issues public or private => will let the user set/change the private flag on his own issues

A new issue visibility level is available on roles:

  • All non private issues => user will see all non private issues and private issues that were created by him or are assigned to him

#13 Updated by Vlad Vlad over 3 years ago

May I set the Private status on a Comment level? This I could have a public Issue with a private and public comunication at one place.

This is the subject of #1554.

#15 Updated by Frank Helk about 3 years ago

Question on that:

May I customize the privacy state of newly created tickets, i.e. in project config ? I not, I would recommend that as useful extension of that feature.

#16 Updated by Roman E. about 3 years ago

Can anyone tell if it is possible to reverse the feature. Meaning this:

We have a private project for administrative issues but sometimes people from other projects may need to access this single issue. In Bugzilla that we were used to, it was achievable via CC - by adding an individual to CC gives him access to to the specific issue.

It was discussed on #7412, but the way we suggested there to accomplish that was not the best. I just created a feature request to this, as suggested by Jean-Phillipe: #8488

#18 Updated by Martin G about 3 years ago

Watchers of an issue are not able to see private issues. Is this wanted so?

Watcher mechanism don't affect the issue visibility. To further info, please read #7412 / #8488.

#20 Updated by Pavel Konstantinov about 3 years ago

Can I predefine initial state of Private flag for new issues? I need it to be checked by default

I need the same, but didn't realize how to do it. I guess we'll need a patch...
Maybe it is a good idea create a separate issue for that.
