Implement sharing for individual boards #185

I'm planning on re-using the space sharing interface for this, but in the spaces_users/spaces_invites tables, going to have object_type/object_id fields (ie board/4444, and possibly eventually note/1234).

On the client side, it would be really weird to have a space for each individual board shared, so it might make sense to have a Shared with me space that's automatic and can't be edited/removed. It would list all the individual boards shared with the user. It would not allow adding/removing boards directly (just the "leave" action).

Eventually it would be nice to be able to move these shared boards into spaces in the sharee's own data, however that is a fairly large change with a lot of strange complexities with regard to the syncing system so would have to be v2 of this feature and would be a separate ticket.


  • Tracking individual shared boards so the system knows they aren't a full space with a set of boards, but rather a single board share
  • Permissions. They are enforced at the space level, not the individual object level. Permissions checking might need to be expanded everywhere.
  • Keep sharing individual notes in mind while building this.

Actually regarding moving shared boards into local spaces, there might be an easyish workaround. If locally (in the core) the boards had a field called virtual_space_id and the search system did something like WHERE space_id = {{space_id}} OR virtual_space_id = {{space_id}} for the space search, the boards could appear that they were in the space they were "moved" to but would actually still be in their original space.
