Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 451902
Global views can contain fields not viewable by external users
Last modified: 2008-06-17 21:35:27 EDT
Description of problem:
When altering the view of a group under Issues > Alter display for: (group
name), it's possible to select non-employee viewable items and then save the
view as the global default. This results in the standard default view for
non-employees, not the customized one created by the RH employee. The system
should parse the available columns and refuse to save a global default view
(this is global default, not global employee default) if any columns have been
selected that cannot be viewed by customers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to IT as a RH employee
2. Go to Issues > Alter display for: (group name)
3. Add columns like "Pri" or "PS" and save as global default view
4. Non-RH users will see the standard default instead of the newly customized
view, as it contains columns they have no access to.
The system allows saving of non-customer viewable columns as the global default.
Customers don't get the custom view created by the RH employee because of this.
The system should reject attempts to save global default views that contain
non-customer viewable fields. Perhaps we should color code the items or "*" them
to let people know they're internal only fields?
