5.43. Issues visibility

By default, all issues are visible to any user within a project. To limit the visibility of issues there are several mechanisms.

5.43.1. Public/Private view status

A view status flag can be set, for an issue, to be either public or private. Private issues are accesible by the user who created it, and by those users that meet a threshold defined in $g_private_bug_threshold.
Refer to the following configuration options related to issue view status configurations:
$g_default_bug_view_status
The default viewing status for the new bug (VS_PUBLIC or VS_PRIVATE). The default is VS_PUBLIC.
$g_private_bug_threshold
The threshold for a user to be able to view any private issue within a project.
$g_set_view_status_threshold
The threshold for a user to be able to set an issue to Private/Public.
$g_change_view_status_threshold
The threshold for a user to be able to update the view status while updating an issue.
