Description:

The 'Subject' and 'Description' entry fields appear above the Note Listing View for the Risk, Issues or Change Request Notes tab (itl.notes).

The end-user does not have Risk, Issue, Change Request - Create/Edit rights ; just View rights. It is not expected that the end-user can add a note. The two entry fields appear and the 'Add' button is not shown. It is expected that the entry fields should not be shown on the page.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Login to Clarity as a Project Manager with Create/Edit rights to add a Risk, Issue, and Change Request

  2. Create a Risk, Issue and Change Request on a Project

  3. Login to Clarity as a end-user with access to the Project and has only the 'Project - Risk, Issue, change Request - View - All' access right

  4. Navigate to the Project -> Risks/Issues/Changes tab -> Risks
  5. Open the Risk and navigate to the 'Notes' tab

    Expected: List of Risk Notes should only appear
    Actual: Above the list of Risk Notes, the 'Subject' and 'Description' entry fields appear (serves no purpose because end-user cannot 'Add' the entry)

  6. Navigate to the Project -> Risks/Issues/Changes tab -> Issues

  7. Open the Issue and navigate to the 'Notes' tab

    Expected: List of Issue Notes should only appear
    Actual: Above the list of Issue Notes, the 'Subject' and 'Description' entry fields appear (serves no purpose because end-user cannot 'Add' the entry)

    Expected: List of Change Request Notes should only appear
