The "Roles and permissions" screen has many options. But if I restrict access to certain types of information, those items still show up in the "Activity" tab when that user is logged in.

For example: I created a role "Customer" that has no access to the repository. However, users with that role can still see revision commit activity from subversion in the Activity tab. They can also see issues they don't have access to.

Where is the use case for this?
The user could still get the information.

But another idea could be the permission "view activity". Maybe I could provide a patch after my hospital visit.
I mark this on my watch list.

My use case is I want to give a customer access to specific items without them having visibility into all of the ongoing activities. Thanks!

Sounds like this is the same request just different described #13512?

The items shown in activity view and Atom feed are all filtered according to the current user's visibility, so that only activity whoch is actually visible to the user elsewhere is included there.

When checking the feeds, make sure to use the right atom key in the URL, i.e. the one of the checked user, not the one from an admin as the atom key identifies the user whose permissions are checked.

If you still observe items in the feed which should not be visible to a user, please re-open this issue and provide more information to allow us to reproduce this issue in a clean Redmine.
