Hide standard fields based on role

Added by Bence Balazs 10 months ago

Hello there,

I tried the latest version of Redmine, but I miss the feature that hides the standard fields based on roles. I want to select which standard fields to hide for each role.

In the older version I used "Issue Field Visibility Plugin", which was an easy checkbox plugin to hide standard fields. But it's compatible only with Redmine 4.0.x.
https://www.redmine.org/plugins/redmine_issue_field_visibility

I tried to manage visibility on page Administration\Workflow\Fields permissions\, but only edit/read-only/required options are avaiable. In case of setting "Read-only" the field is only unvisible during the creation of the ticket, but after it the field becomes visible on the home page of the ticket. Interesting, visibility can be easily set for a custom field.

Is there any other plugin to manage this, or is there a build-in feature in Redmine? Do you have any advice to solve the problem? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you and best regards,
Ben

Hi Bence

If you've been getting value from RedMine in the past, and the plugin was helpful at your company- are you able to give back to the community at the same time as solving your problem?

Ie -the plugin you like, needs work to be usable in redmine 4.x - can you do some project management, to get that work done? ie ask your boss - can we pay some money to solve this problem for our users?
and then
i) contact Jens and offer to pay for the work to his plugin
OR ii) yourself find a technical Ruby person in your company, / online to improve the plugin?

Or solve it yourself - I may be wrong, but it seems only 1 or 2 hundred lines of code in the whole plugin- and maybe only a few need changing for Redmine > 4.0
