User Groups Functionality - clarification

Added by Darryl Winder about 12 years ago

Hi All

I'm setting up groups as an easier way of managing permissions with largish lists of users . What happens when a user is a member of two (or more) groups which are assigned to a project with different permissions ? eg an 'all users' group with contributor privileges and a 'project leads' group with manager privileges. From the behaviour I see I'm guessing the user will get the union of all the individual rights. Is this the case ?

thanks
Darryl

It does seem to work that way for me (privileges union) in Redmine 0.9.2

AFAIK all privileges are unions, i.e. you have every permission you have in any of your roles or that a group you are in has.
