I am operating Discourse as a closed intranet for an organization. I use groups and category permission settings to create private sections for different groups of users.
But the admin user is still able to access topics from any category, and users are bound to figure this out. The users do not want the forum admin to have access to their private discussions
I am looking for a way to restrict the admin’s access to a category. The ideal feature would be one that obfuscates the contents of a topic while leaving the topic history and stats intact, so the administrator can see the amount of activity, but not the contents.
This setting could be called ‘Hide topic contents from admin’ on the security tab of the edit category modal.
Has such a feature ever been considered?
