Customizing the "New Issue" screen + dealing with time tracking

I'm reviewing YouTrack's abilities and have a couple of questions.

Q1.

Let's say our company has deployed a software installation for a particular customer.

We want the customer to be able to login into YouTrack and create issues.

I don't want the customer to be able to set- or even see for example: assignee, fix version, next build etc.

I want to dumb down his options so that he can only set if the bug is critical, add descriptions, screenshots etc.

I still want a developer to have all these options, but not the customer?

Can YouTrack be customized in this way?

Q2.

Can I brand the YouTrack installation with our logo etc.?

Q3.

How can YouTrack help us report time worked on specific issues?

Multiple people may work on a single issue at different times and we need to store a record of that so that we can bill the customer for support time.

Best regards

Johan Lund

Hello Johan,

Thank you for your interest in YouTrack.

Please find the answers below.

A1.

You can declare a 'sensitive' field as private and do not grant an external user permissions to read or update issue private fields in a specific project.

A2.

You can replace YouTrack logo on login screen with the one of your own. Please be aware that this is not possible in a free version of YouTrack.

A3.

Comprehensive time tracking will be implemented in YouTrack 4.0. Follow http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/JT-1138 to stay updated.

Meanwhile, you can leverage a field of integer type to keep track of time spent while working on an issue.

Best regards,

  Alexander Volfman

A1. Ok this seems to work but I still have a problem.

I want to hide the "Assign to" "Link" etc. menus for customers using the system.

These seem to come back whenever I toggle the permissons for "Update Issue" and "Comment".

That turning on the ability to make a comment also turns on the menu that allows you to reassing the issue doesn't make any sense to me.

Am I missing some permission somewhere or is this a bug?
