|Summary||0022303: When trying to add an attachement note status V_PRIVATE has effect (hide the attachment section)|
I'm trying to migrate from 1.2.19 to 2.1.0.
My proposal: attachement section will work as in 1.2.x
|Tags||No tags attached.|
The reason for disabling attachments section for private notes is that we support private notes, but not private attachments. Hence, if a user adds a private note with attachment, unexpectedly, the attachment will be disclosed. Support for private attachments is tracked via 0009802.
I understand that you want to provide private attachment and it's ok, but the point IMHO is that implemented this way transition from 1.2.x to 2.x.x it's very hard and confusing for <b>normal users</b> i.e. people that do not understand mantis inner working.
May be it will be a good thing to have the chance to add attachment without note (1.2.x flavor) and this 'button has to be always (1.2.x flavor) <b>plus</b> attachment to note ( a great thing not fully implemented yet) (2.x flavor), and a must will be chance to configure it
Thanks again for this great product.
I can try to provide merge request for implementation I've suggested on 55459 if you want.
Hi, I was thinking about this and IMHO there is a minor mistake in implementation.
Talking about how 1.2.x works on notes management and I suppose 2.x works same way, then:
Then if private attachment state depends of note state, this controls visibility of existent notes and attachments, but can not control the chance to attach or not, if I've the right access level.
I hope that this description now will made (potential) issue clear.
