Quota usage viewing should be possible for standard users

Currently a user cannot see a detail view of their disk usage. The home view shows a summary of the used disk space. We tried to play around with the permissions system to enable a standard user to get access to the detail view available through Administrate -> Disk usage tabs. We could not find a proper credential setting.

I suggest that in the home view in the disk usage pane we add a view details link similar to the one available in Administrate -> Disk usage tab per user but with the user pre-selected, i.e. a user should not see anything else than his own information.

The permission you are looking for is "Disk usage". This is the 10th permission in the "Permissions" tab when editing a role.

Yes but ... Of course the permission allows the user to accomplish detail view of his disk usage. However, the user will also get a view of everyone else quota (at least everyone who is in the same groups as the user). So, yes it can be accomplished but with a cost.

The permission fix does not rule out a shot cut from the home view to disk usage details, it fits naturally to the overview presentation.

What I am looking for is a way to allow a user to list his disk usage without seeing other users disk usage.

It should be possible to link from the overview information on 'Home' page to the current implementation that shows the details. May have to hide some buttons/links if the user doesn't have the generic 'READ:DISKUSAGE' permission.
