Yes, definitely a request by lot of people on the forum. I support this feature request as well.

I just want to add my voice. It would be handy to have a role between project-manager and admin. Something like "redmine-manager", who could create new projects, new users, manage roles and workflow, but who could not change system settings.

We have chosen redmine because it works easy with huge amount of small projects. In our organization project managers write letters to admin for new project creation. It is not very usable. I mean, that redmine needs for form for admin project approvement. Or smth like this.

I'd really like to see this in redmine too.
But it looks like it won't be there anytime soon, this "issue" is over a half year old now..?

My team just installed redmine, we like it so far but this is one of the missed features. The new proposed role of "redmine-manager" is something I agree fully with. Added to watched tickets.

I did not see this in the changelog. Did this feature make it into .8.0?

We are rolling out redmine on our university campus and in our environment any authenticated user can create a project. With a little tweaking I managed to modify the code to fit our needs so any authenticated user can create a new project (and the person that creates the project becomes the admin. I am guessing that someone can modify it a little more to accept any authenticated user that is member of a specific group can create projects. At any rate, here are the patch files in case they are of use to someone. The version we are currently using is 0.8.3.

index.rhtml is found in redmine/app/views/projects/
projects_controller.rb is found under redmine/app/controllers

Sorry, maybe there's a point I'm missing, but how can a user get the role without being member of an existing project.
AFAIK the roles can only be given per project. So, is there any way to give this permission to a user that is not member of any project ?

yes, i find it weird too.

I'm using it here. What I do is that some people are managers on some projects. And the manager role has this permission set to 'yes'. As such, those people do indeed have access to 'create a new project' on the /projects page. I guess it is not possible for a new user who has no role yet to have such possibility.

In my case, I don't want those user to be on an existing project since they are not concerned by it...
An option is to create a fack project to give this permission but I think it's as stupid as it sounds...

A nice alternative would be to provide this option directly at users level (like admin) or to think about global roles...

Hi Steve Cundy and Others

I use Redmine 0.8.7 and applied Steve's patch to let all authenticated users to create a new project.
After, when I login as a normal user and try to add a new project, I get:

You are not authorized to access this page.

Can you please help to understand the reason.

Updated by Balaji K over 14 years ago

It works as expected after some time.
I am not sure but few changes work either after a restart of the webrick or some time of inactivity.
Thanks Steve for a quick patch, I did not have to upgrade my version.
