Custom fields, users, and states

Post by ivoras » Sep 30, 2011 5:02 am

Does Mantis allow for certain custom (or any) fields to be filled in ONLY by certain users, and / or that certain fields "appear" to users with correct privileges only if the issue is in certain state(s)?

If not, does anyone know a BT / issue tracker which can do that?

That is an easy question with a short answer: No
Currently there is no (custom) field based authorisation nor user based authorisation.

Can't you write your own validator in custom_functions.php to mimic some of this functionality? For example, write your own "custom_function_override_issue_update_validate()" to update that field only occurs if user is a manager. or "custom_function_override_get_columns_to_view()" and select a few based on access level...
