Defect #21075

User without role in project is not shown as a selection option in Author filter (Issues tab)

  1. User submits an issue
  2. Issue is moved from an area where they do have access to one where they do not
  3. Dev goes to search for all tickets authored by the user in a project where the author does not have permission (or even at the global level)
  4. User is not in the list of Authors that can be applied via a filter


  1. Add user to project as reporter
  2. User is now selectable in the Authors filter

All of our installations are at version 3.1.1, so I'm unsure when this first occurred.

Duplicates Redmine - Feature #1875: Issue filtering on author only uses members of project New 2008-09-09

Another Scenario goes in the same direction:

  • user A creates a issue
  • issue were assigned to user B
  • admin deactivate user A
    • other scenario: admin only removes A from project
  • user B is available to assigne issue to A

There are two point for discussion:

  • is it ok, that an issue is still longer assigned to an user who were removed?
    • maybe: yes...
  • is it ok, that an issue can be assigned to a user who is still removed from the project or still deactivated?
    • in my opinion: nope.

(seen this fail in version 3.1.2 and 3.2.0)
