Hide users from other users
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I am trying to open up access of my phabricator site to my clients. With project level restriction, and spaces restriction.

However due to the nature of a large number of my clients in a particular industry i am serving, they are no stranger to scraping each other companies email addresses, names, company structure and poaching one another. To other shady things.

As such i have taken steps to prevent them from such users "discovering" other users. Such as hiding the subscriber, and assigned to field.

However as pointed out. This is not an actual solution, it simply makes it less "obvious". As anyone can go to the comments segment, and start searching using the @mention option.

I do notice that this is actually in place on this site (perhaps not intentionally). As such this may simply be an existing, but not easily found configuration. Or a side effect of using alternative identity providers.

@avivey (this is me testing it again) : Or perhaps the search is just taking .... forever .... XD
