|0002344||TestLink||Test Project Management||public||2009-04-07 12:15||2010-10-09 08:00|
|Fixed in Version||1.9 RC 1|
|Summary||0002344: Private test project|
|Description||We had a use case wherein the QA engineer needs a new private site for feeding testcases for his own projects, and wants to keep control about who browse and execute his testcases. So he creates a new testlink project, marking it as Private, and providing access only to himself, a coworker and his manager. Since there are two modules for executing, he assign himself to one and left the other to his coworker.|
An option should be present on the Project Page , i.e a new option to choose a project to be private or Public.
|Additional Information||Implementation strategy as i found out|
A new column in TestProjects table wherein the column say option_private is to be created.
and in Projectedit.php make an option so that the project unless it is made public is not available to anyone except the admin/owner of the project.
a function which hides the private project by not inserting a value to user_projects_role.
Just similar to the below public/private option in Mantis issue reporter.

I can accept different (cheaper) approach with the same result:
Projects are not listed in top combo-box menu in the case that user has "no rights" project right.
Note, that you can setup default role from guest to no_right (for auto-create feature).
Is it ok for you? Explain if not. Thanks.
Ya its Ok for me
And i accept your approach to be a better one
|Acknowledged (target could be 1.9)|
are you sure that this has not impact on Permission system based on roles ?
Ask Andreas before doing any implementation or better assign this to him (he knows very well roles system)
|Hi i think fman is right, why dont we do it by doing it with roles system as i earlier suggested? by overriding the default testlink by inserting a <no rights> role to each private project in table User_testproject_role|
|To semplify massive role assigned, bulk feature has been added => 1.9|
What if a new user account is created? It receives guest role for such private project automatically then. It means that you must develop another level of checking.
Regarding performance: list of available projects should be given one time during login and stored in session data for all work. So performance will be improved :-)

Humm, may be a solution is to change how we are manage test project roles, then when creating a new account we will automatically add with <no right> on every existent test project.
But when you create a new test project what to do ?
Again add an option to set all user to <no rights>
really this solution start to smell bad.
Think better thing to do is:
a) accept this as workaround, not a bad one
b) ask Andreas to understand how this new attribute for test project, and then for test plan also, can have impact on role logic and code.
Meanwhile this is VERY LOW priority, IMHO.

who has talked about performance ?
what and where are these performance problems ?
I disagree with new attribute for rights limitation. The current system is consistent and able to care about the problem.
1. performance: rights are nearly all page part and additional minor dependence is not wanted
2. Administrator must see also private projects and plans. It means that you must exception for exception
3. Bad for maintenance - try to write UML diagram for your proposal - it' far from simple approach
I'm going to reassign this issue to Andreas to make a decision. Andreas, could you look at? Thanks.
|Discussion no longer necessary, as code already committed|
>>The same should apply to test plans. But the combination TestProject Private >>TestPlan public doesn't make sense. So if a Testproject with existing plans >>goes from public to private all PLan also should go from public to private. >>For the reverse transition the user should be asked
I will check ODT but I think I've written something similar
