[rt-users] ChangeOwner right

To be able to assign an owner you have to have the "ModifyTicket" right and
to be on the list as a possible owner, you have to have the "OwnTicket"
right. You haven't described how you have distributed these rights, so it's
gonna be pretty hard to advise you on this one.

It would also be good to keep in mind that the best way to handle rights is
to NOT use the shotgun approach, passing out rights globally to all
privileged, roles, etc. It's much better to put users into specific groups
with "like" access needs and then grant the necessary rights to specific
Queues to these groups. WAY better approach.

However, your situation seems a little untenable. Once you have the ability
to Modify a Ticket, who you give it to can only be limited by the
"OwnTicket" right. I may be wrong on this, but I don't think so.

Hope this helps.
