Granting access to a client

I would like to give a client read-only access to a project so he can see the list of open cases, etc.  I am using version 4.0.  To do this, will I need to purchase another named user license or is there a way I can grant the access to my client while not making the project publicly available?

Hi Kirby,

If you want a client to be able to log in and have read only access to a project, the client will need a license and a FogBugz account.  If you simply wanted them to submit cases, they would not need an account, but to view cases they do.

I thought I would need another named user license, which makes sense.  However, FogBugz's RSS support gave me a great idea.

I have an extranet that my client has access to.  It's used to download release bits, document library, and so on.  I can create a set of filters specific to the client and display the list of cases on the extranet via the filter's RSS feed.  And since the RSS feed will be consumed on the server-side, I do not have to worry about the client seeing my FogBugz credential. 

Having RSS support is a great idea.  Thanks for including it.

Have you gotten this working successfully?

I'm an independent developer and I have about a dozen clients.  I can't afford to use this system and pay for an individual license for each client but really need to have a way for them to simply view the list of open cases that are theirs. 

I've tried setting up a saved filter which works correctly within FB but when I try to aggregate the feed (I'm adding a valid User & pass to the URL), it loads all open cases when the filter is specific to a client.

It seems like FB is taking the user info into consideration when building the filter.

Anyone?  Any thoughts?
