Approver security

Hi Antonella,

During the testing of this plugin we got some audit questions regarding security.

In our example:

  • There is a change which moves to an approval status which need to be approved by an approval group.
  • If the reporter of the change is part of the approval group he can just approve it without any other review done. So no other eyes looked at the change.

Is it possible to put some logic in your plugin that the reporter of a ticket cannot give approval as well for the ticket (Group Approval) as he is part of the approval group? A warning message should popup like (Reporter cannot be the approver).

I assume that more customers will ask for this feature if they will be audited.

Many thanks,
