permissions if not admin
You probably already know this, but just in case....
If a user is not an administrator and they attempt to click on a project where they are a member (in any role, manager,
developer, reporter, etc.), there is an unexpected result:
Filter chain halted as [authorize] returned false
Completed in 0.00010 (10000 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.00000 (0%) | DB: 0.00000 (0%) | 403
I believe this is the relevant code in the application.rb:
- admin is always authorized
return true if self.logged_in_user.admin?
- if not admin, check membership permission
@user_membership ||= Member.find(:first, :conditions => ["user_id=? and project_id=?",
if @user_membership and Permission.allowed_to_role( "%s/%s" % [ ctrl, action ], @user_membership.role_id
render :nothing => true, :status => 403
Put another way- create a non-admin user, add this user to a project in any role (manager, developer, etc.) and then
login as this new user. when you click on the project, you receive a blank page
Thoughts? Let me know if you want any help on this or if I'm doing something strange?
Commit messages are now scanned for referenced or fixed issue IDs.
Keywords and the status to apply to fixed issues can be defined in Admin -> Settings.
- for referencing issues: refs, references, IssueID
- for fixing issues: fixes,closes
There's no default status defined for fixed issue. You'll have to specify it if you want to enable auto closure of issues.

Hi, You're right. There is a big problem for members of non public
projects. Public actions (projects/show, ...) should be implicitly
authorized to any role. For the moment, i'll fix it this way
(0.4.0 should be released soon).
In 0.5.0, many changes should be done on permissions management,
I'll do my best to answer your needs.
Thanks for your submission.

I have solution working for me and it also solves feature
request id: 6535. Maybe it will be helpful for you?
On the roles page (new or edit), we could include all
permissions including public. This way, we can control
things like projects/show, projects/list_issues, etc.
In addition, we can control whether or not certain modules
will even appear for certain groups (see feature request id:
6535). For example, if a group does not have "List"
permission for Documents module, the Documents link will not
I will upload three patch files to this ticket for your review:

I think the problem is two parts
1) default data load should include 100 in default
permissions (I'll attach patch file to this ticket)
2) When creating a new Role, we need to add a permission id
of 1. What is the best way to do this? hidden form field?
update the "method" in roles_controller to include
