Defect #10071

Redmine Administrator is limited by roles, memberships and workflows

User leaves company. All their issues that are open and ones that were closed in last 2 weeks need to be reassigned with a custom status. As administrator I try to change status and I am told I don't have permissions. Now I have to add myself to project, only to change status, and then remove myself from project. And I have to do that many times from many different projects.


For Redmine administrators allow all actions, give warning if they do something that is outside of typical use (like changing status outside of typical workflow).

Kind regards

#1 Updated by Alex Shulgin over 10 years ago

This bugs me as well.

Not sure about workflows, but it is very reasonable that admin users should be able to act on projects regardless of the membership.

#2 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 10 years ago

  • Category set to Issues workflow
  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Resolution set to Duplicate

Same as #2323, which has just been fixed.
