Resolution:Fixed Affected version:1.2.1


When there's more than 100 users in redmine, it is possible that some users won't be listed in the "New member" box in project settings for adding new members.

I think the bug is introduced in:

On line 54:

<% principals =, :limit => 100, :order => 'type, login, lastname ASC') - @project.principals %>

:limit=>100 is hardcoded. So users that are ordered outside the first 100 entries will never be shown.

When the first 100 users in the sorted order are added to the project, the "New member" box will always show empty results.

Adds pagination to users list when adding project or group members (#9549).


#1 Updated by Mischa The Evil almost 9 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Resolution set to Invalid

This is the intended behavior as implemented initially by r2638 for issue #2993, which introduced the limit of 300 users:

Adds a user search field with autocompleter on project members screen.

User selection with checkboxes is disabled if there are more than 300 users available (#2993).

and secondly as changed by r2869 for issue #1018, which set the current limit to 100 users. If you have 100+ users in your Redmine instance you should use the auto-completer instead. It's especially meant for such purpose.

Note: if you want to discuss the actual limit and/or want to suggest another value, feel free to open a new feature-request dedicated to such containing a detailed use-case supporting a proposed change.
