Redmine setup:
Project A and B are not public projects, with several common members.

Added #visible? to Journal and Comment (#2329)


#1 Updated by Robert Roth over 9 years ago

I had to implement a workaround, so I have found the attached patch to be working. A bit slow, but at least no privacy issues anymore.
If you have a better way, feel free to suggest anything, I would be happy to implement it.

Looks like, this applies only to journals (not to issues themselves).

I fixed this issue (I believe) by implementing visible? for Journal and Comment (in r83). If visible? is not implemented for a mentioned object, such mention is always shown. So, implementing proper visible? solves the issue.

However, I’m not sure, that all such cases are fixed (I made search and found only Journal and Comment, but I could miss something). That’s the reason, why I leave this bug open.

P.S. The fix by Robert is more universal, but it’s generally not correct (non-members can have access to the project too). Besides, as it was mentioned, it’s slower (according to Robert – I did not test this).
