Resolution: Affected version:2.3.2



In our Redmine installation, non-members have this set of rights :
  • See and create tickets. Add notes (modify their own) and save requests (see 01.PNG)
  • Must fill description and category fields for "New" tickets (status) (see 02.PNG)

If someone creates a ticket and the ticket remains to "New", then when a non-member tries to add a note to this ticket, there is an error message saying the field category has to be filled up (see 03.PNG) .. It looks like the previous form does not take into account the previously set category for the ticket and it is still looking for it. The non-member issue update form only shows a description field (+ attach file button).

I will need some help on this because it looks like there is no way for non-members to update an issue.
