Description

Currently it would be nice to be able to forbid viewing project forums to anonymous users.
A "Can view forums" checkbox in role permissions would suffice.

This would solve several use-cases I think. Some quotes from #8618 (duplicating issue):

Most of the Permission do have a View XXXX checkbox, but not the forum. In my case i wanted to give a customer access to our redmine. In fact he is able to see our discussion forum which is not ment to be public. Its definetly a missing thing.

I've got the same problem. Work-around was to move the forum to another private project, but this is less than ideal, as it really should all be in the same project. Causes confusion and extra clicks.

The attached patch makes the "view messages" permission configurable, similar to #7068#note-5. This patch does not include translations as those are already present.

  • Target version set to Candidate for next major release

Felix, thank you for the patch. It works fine but breaks some tests on my environment. Could you take a look?

ruby test/functional/boards_controller_test.rb

ruby test/functional/messages_controller_test.rb

You are correct, the tests make the assumption that this permission is public. I have added the permission to the test fixtures and they work now.

  • Target version changed from Candidate for next major release to 3.4.0

The patch works fine and passed all tests.
I think that delivering this feature along with #7068 makes permission control system of Redmine more consistent. Setting target version to 3.4.0.
