Custom Form for Reporter role

Post by joarobles » Mar 07, 2012 8:19 am

Is there a way to show less fields in the "Report Bug" form if the user role is "reporter"?
I would only like to show the required fields, such as "Category", "Subject" and "Description"..
Thanks in advance

You have to modify the source code to do this.

Idea of a (maybe not acceptable) workaround without changing source code.

Use page Manage > Manage Configuration > Configuration Report to set bug_report_page_fields for all users to a limited collection of fields
Now the bad part:
Use n-times page Manage > Manage Configuration > Configuration Report to set bug_report_page_fields for all other users (which means for every single other user)

This might be an acceptable approach if there are hundreds of reporters, five developers, one manager and one administrator.
