Question on whether or not this is possible

Hi folks

We are using RT internally for issue tracking, and starting to use it
for more workflow type things.

At the same time, I am thinking we might want to use it for customer
facing interfaces to bugs (ala web page). But we want to keep the
customer bits and the internal workflow bits separate. Is it possible
to create users that can only see some things on specific queues, but
have no rights to other queues?

So if user joe@xyz.com wants to query the database, they can do it,
only for the support queue, but not for the other queues?

Or do we need to set up a separate RT system for the non-support
workflow bits, and not provide customer access to the workflow system?

Thanks!

Yes, you want to grant rights at the queue-level rather than the global
system level. Go to Configuration > Queues > [Select a queue] > Modify
Group/User Rights.

Joe,

Actually, you might want to grant some rights globally that you want all to
do and wouldn’t affect Queue access, like “ReplyToTicket” and loading/saving
searches.
I have a guideline for rights that we use for just such a thing. If you’re
interested, I’ll send it to you.
