I am looking for an issue tracker/bug tracker where I can decide access control on a per-issue basis. Issue trackers I've seen (Trac, Redmine, JIRA) each do that on a level of project, so I'd have to make a project for every subset of people allowed to see given issue and this is prohibitive in my use case.

  • Exactly what I wrote: I want to decide who can see and who can modify each ticket.

Bugzilla allows the bug submitter to designate individual bugs as security bugs or otherwise confidential. In that case they will only be seen by a previously designated list of staff, and will not be public.

  • Is there only a single "security" group, or maybe I can create multiple such groups?
