Is there currently any way to have 'private users' within Redmine?

By this I mean there could be a user assigned to a project who works as eg a developer, but that developer's name not be visible to an external customer. The users name would not appear in the pull down 'assign to' list for the external customer, and a mask could be set by the administrator to show something other than the users name to external users 'eg project developer'.

The users name would not appear in the list of project members to anyone who does not have access to the 'private users' option.

Any internal user would still be able to see the users name as is the case now.

Many thanks - Steve

Isn't it duplicated with #2653 ?

I can see that it bears some similarities to that item, but that's more specifically about the ability to view or not view raised items, whereas in this example external users would be able to see items raised or updated by the 'private user', just not who that user is..

i think this is for the use case of limiting exposure to a sub contractor to your client?
