This plugin allows you to share an issue with other users, using readonly or editable permissions. When shared and on issue modification, the shared users will be notified via email.

The permissions works this way:
  • The readonly permission is like a watcher, but the issue is visible for him in the listings.
  • The editable permission is like assigning the issue to him, the user has visibility and he can modify the issue.

This is my humble attempt to extend the issue assignment to many users (also adding management of visibility, notification and permissions).

Please feel free to propose fixes, changes and improvements.

First clone from repository (or download pack and extract in plugins folder)

Then, update the database from the root of your Redmine directory:

cd ..
rake redmine:plugins:migrate RAILS_ENV=production
