Assign list contains users without permission

We have 70+ users, divided into groups. When assigning a case, you will see all users in the drop-down list, even those with no permissions for that case. Why is that? It is very annoying.

Hi Ulrik,

The users you see in the "Assign to" dropdown box will be determined by your permissions.  If you share a permission group (Admin -> Groups) with another user, you'll be able to see them (and they'll be able to see you). 

Also, if you're a Site Admin or a Group Admin, you'll be able to see all users.  We're working on a fix for the latter case since Group Admins shouldn't be able to see everyone else.

OK, good. I still think it should be fixed so that only users with permissions on the actual project is shown. The user list should be rebuilt when project is changed, compare to milestones.

We tried to rebuild the user list dynamically based on the project dropdown, but the complexity of doing so was more than we anticipated. We'd still like to do something like this in the future.
