Repository permissions are strange

Added by Eduardo Yáñez Parareda over 11 years ago

Hello again. I want Developer role has permission to view project's activity, but not Repository tab, because I don't want every developer could stall the server when they click on that tab.

Server gets stalled because the project is based on CVS. I have written another question about that.

Thanks.

Look at permissions. The option is there.

No, these are the options:

-Manage repository
-Browse repository
-View changesets
-Commit access

If I only mark 'View changesets', I expect people can view the Project's Activity but can't access Repository tab, but that is not how it works.
So if I schedule to fetch repository several times a day, I don't want developers could access Repository tab to get the server stalled.

I think I'll put a javascript popup when somebody click Repository tab which ask the user whether she's sure to do that because the server will
be stalled for several minutes.

Isn't Browse repository what you're looking for? That's what controls access to the Repository tab, I believe.

No, because I have only checked 'View changesets' for Developer role, but developers can access that tab, the other three options are unchecked.
So what I want is that developers could view in Activity the repository's changesets, but can't access Repository tab.

I think I'll have to do it making a patch to the source code.
