Resolution:Invalid Affected version:2.4.2


I have created a customer specific role & user and edited their permissions (role and workflow) to hide time related fields.

The correct behaviour is exhibited for this user under this role creating/updating issues - no time related fields are shown.

However when viewing the issue as this user the start date, due date, % done and estimated time is visible, as is the history related to this.

Please refer to the attached screen shot.

#1 Updated by Richard Gunn over 8 years ago

Additionally, the role constraints do not flow through under issues -> options -> columns list: the due date, estimated time and % done are visible, can be selected & added as columns onto the issue list although the user's role disables all time tracking

#2 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 8 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Resolution set to Invalid

Disabling time tracking permissions for a role does not prevent this role from viewing start/due dates and estimates.
For now, there's no way to hide these standard fields to certain roles.
