Edit by peterdd: renamed task summary

Affected versions: at least Flyspray 0.9.9(.7/*?) up to Flyspray 1.0 RC1

Original report: Title ‘Problem regarding 0.9.7 (1.0) to 1.0 RC-1 update’

I tried to update BT from modified version (database in original state) 0.9.7 to 1.0 RC-1 but I got strange error.

PHP is 5.6.

I try to use:
Precompiled with 3rd party libs for PHP5.6

and was doing as was written on upgrade procedure.

Strange is that “D:\SShopBT\includes\class.flyspray.php” there are errors regarding writtable path... Because the path is correct and all other Joomla and Wordpress web sites are working correctly..

After upgrade web site do not work att all. Login not working - just get error. So I must reverse (use backup) database and files.

Server is Windows Server and IIS (Internet Information Services)..

Complete error was (also seen in screenshot):

Warning: is_writable(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(C:\PHP-temp) is not within the allowed path(s): (D:\) in D:\SShopBT\includes\class.flyspray.php on line 1162

1.1 devel412.03.201519.09.2015 Task Description

When I scroll down the page to see more of the task list and then click on one of the column headings to sot by this heading, the answer page doesn't scroll down to the table.

I think there are 2 technical solutions for that:

1. set an name/id a-anchor on top of the table and on each column heading link add for example '#tasklist'.

2. add a js-sorter with complete extra search and sort ajax-backend with e.g. libs from http://datatables.net/ This requires aleso writing a server side handler for taking the ajax requests (respecting user permissions!) and is only usable if js in enabled in browser. So this second solution can only be a luxury comfort function.

1.1 devel412.03.201518.03.2019 Task Description

This task can maybe splitted into separate sub tasks.

Task properties

Current situation

  • Currently 8 multi select fields with height of 5.5 visible options.
  • For most of the selects you must scroll to make the right selections.
  • floating

Ideas

Multi select option styling

Some (not all, intentional!) browsers support CSS styling of option tags. For these who support it I think option styling is a good usability enhancement:

  • severity: We use background colors for styling in task list, so we should use the same colors for the select.
  • priority: maybe, but must be good distinguishable from severity styling. maybe not background, but maybe icons,borders,lines?
  • task type: This styling would be related to an other task, where I suggest icons/font icons for bugs, feature requests and TODO (see also themes/CleanFS/custom_example.css)
  • progress: maybe use the green %-bars as background styling
  • status: If for some status types very intuitive icons exists, they could be used for the options too.
  • due version: no idea yet, no option styling
  • reported version: no idea yet, no option styling

Update: CSS of option tags working in multi selects:

  • Firefox 64: yes
  • Safari 12: no
  • Google Chrome 71: no

So only Firefox. The intended styling could be also achieved by Javascript that renders alternative select boxes based on reading the original select boxes and their option attributes and show the user CSS styled div-tag or li-tag based constructs which do not have such restrictions.

Custom fields

  • challenge/doom level - doom faces: from easy/normal to bloody/angry face
  • os: logos like tux for linux, devil for bsd, window for ms, apple icon, osX icon, android, apple, iphone/smartphone icon, ipad/tablet icon, ..

But Consider: Different project may need different custom fields. Your gardening project may need no OS version selector.

  1. Make some intelligent positioning and sizing dependent on the count of options of the selects.

429.10.201506.11.2015 Task Description

While editing an existing task, there’s a “+” button you can click to add a comment as part of the edit. Unfortunately this is just a plaintext box instead of the HTML editor used everywhere else, so it’s impossible to get proper line/paragraph breaks if a comment is entered with this UI.

This problem makes it necessary to edit a task and add a comment as two separate steps, whereas in 0.9.9.6 it was possible to do them together in one step.

Note that this is the case with syntax_plugin=”none”. I don’t know if it’s also a problem when using other values for that setting.

417.10.201606.11.2016 Task Description

Hello again,

I was wondering (again :-) ) if the following scenario is possible for this bug tracking solution:

Our company uses this bug tracker mainly for helpdesk issues. However, our main users (except IT department) don’t seem to easily understand how to change the status of a ticket, they aren’t interested in doing that also.

So I would like to know if there is a way that we can develop some automatisation in changing the status automatically after customer replies to a message.

Let’s see the following scenario:

  1. user A posts a new task
  2. user B assigns himself (or other) to that specific task - the status automatically is changed to Assigned
  3. user B replies to task by adding a comment - as a result of adding the new comment the task status should change automatically to Waiting for customer - without the need that user B to change the status
  4. user A checks the comment from user B and decides to comment back to him. After pressing the Add comment button, the status should change automatically to Waiting for assignee

If the task is needed to have another status, the users can change them manually, but the automated part should be the waiting for customer and assignee.

On a basic algorithm it shouldn’t be hard (if user is logged in and is task owner, then after comment, task detail - status changing to id 4-5 from task-statuses table on mysql; if user is logged in and assigned to task, after adding comment change status 4-5 from task-statuses table).

I saw this thing on an otrs platform and it is quite ok for a simple user like ours.

Is there any way that we can personalise the flyspray in this way?

If yes, please give us an elaborate answer with what I should do for this to work.

Thanks in advance.

402.02.201716.02.2017 Task Description
  • Flyspray 1.0 includes 1 default theme CleanFS. That decision was made to reduce maintainance effort and the old blue theme was dropped. Also the CleanFS contains UI-logic implemented in HTML/CSS and tries to be usable even for the people who turned off javascript in their web browsers for security reasons. (and reduces spam on many other websites too without an adblocker)
  • Current Flyspray source and the theme CleanFS provides several methods to customize the layout without touching the .tpl files. These are:
    1. custom_*.css files that extend or overwrite properties of CleanFS/theme.css
    2. 2 fields in admin area where to put code
      ?do=admin&area=prefs#lookandfeel

      For instance a corporate footer menu or something like that.

Advantages of CleanFS instead running your own

  • Theme is maintained with Flyspray source. Detected security issues related with themes are fixed with Flyspray releases.
  • Added features or capabilities are implemented for the default theme.

‘Subtheme’ can be a compromise: Theme CleanFS is always uptodate in sync with Flyspray. Subthemer only needs to check changes required for own subtheme .tpl files.

I do not want complete stop people from writing their whole new template, it allows new ideas implemented or alternative usability. For them, it is probably better to create a Github project for that theme.

This is just raw info from me and can be discussed. Something should be finally written on https://www.flyspray.org in the documentation area.

2522Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowemail vs username login issuesResearching

431.10.201802.11.2018 Task Description

So, I’ve been away from Flyspray for more than a few years. When I tried to login to the Flyspray here, I was unable to login, because I don’t remember my username, and I was unable to retrieve my username, because there’s no function for that. I was *also* unable to re-register the same email address. SO, having an account system that requires both unique usernames and unique email addresses, but has no way of retrieving one from the other, doesn’t work out so well.

Suggestion: either use email as username, or add a function to retrieve username (perhaps along with password retrieval . . password retrieval would then have to take username -or- email, probably)

However, you cannot select a new value (from the target list) for the properties in question.

1988Installer and UpgraderBug ReportMediumPassword Field for AdminUnconfirmed
50%
302.04.201512.05.2015 Task Description

The installer requests a password for the admin account, and provides a default one.

Because this field is not type=”password”, the browser caches this data for any field named “admin_password”

This also applies to future installations of the software.

I have marked this as critical as this can pose a security hazard. A different implementation would be allowing entry of password, or in the case of wanting to provide a default one, have two password fields prepopulated, and a text one prepopulated so that it can be viewed by the end user.

Problem: https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/pull/552

The button ‘My assigned tasks’ should search only by userid, not in username or realname with the LIKE ‘%...%’ operator.

Currently the button is using the same as doing an advanced search filling the ‘Assigned To’ input field. (currently ‘dev’ param) But that search param searches in userid, username and realname.

Edit: Implemented simpler solution: if param is digitsonly, then search by userid, otherwise by username and realname if that param exists.

1236User InterfaceFeature RequestLowMark Issue As Verified or UnverifiableUnconfirmed

3409.04.200718.07.2016 Task Description

Currently, the Vote functionality provides users a way to say "this issue is important to me". In addition to that functionality, it would be great for users to have a "Verify" ability on open issues; it would provide users a way to say "yes, this happens to me as well".

A "Verified" label would fit nicely right under "Votes", to the right of the label would be "Yes | No", each option being a link. After clicking Yes or No, or if unable to specify (lack of permissions), the text would display "Yes - # | No - # (% verification)" where '%' is the result of ((Yes/(Yes+No))*100).

This feature should not show up on all issues, though. It does not make sense to "verify" a feature request or todo item, for example. When defining task types, the administrator would specify if a type was "Verifiable" by checking a box in a column next to "Show".

If implemented, two great, mini extra features would be:

  1. The ability for the administrator to set the number of "Yes" verifications an issue would need before it was elevated to the next priority, severity, or both (specified by the administrator).
  2. The ability for the administrator to set the number of "No" verifications an issue would need before it was lowered to the previous priority, severity, or both (specified by the administrator).

Both settings should have an option to be incremental (priority / status increased every x verifications) or not (increases once, no matter how many verifications are received); an "Incremental" checkbox would do nicely. Also, a little "Enabled" checkbox next to both settings would be clearer than having zero act as the disable mechanism.

As with voting, a permission should exist to enable or disable this option for a user group. For larger projects, moderators tasked with verifying bugs could be given the permission whereas smaller projects may leave verifications up to the community.

Lastly, a way to send a notification once the number of "Yes" verifications reached a certain value would also be a great addition.

1.1 devel301.05.201220.03.2015 Task Description

We need to have a better way to do user rights, group rights and manage users.

Here is what I am thinking, global administration can go to a ACL tab. Click on it and you have a simple way to add a new user / group. Two tabs on top are User Rights and Group Rights. These are global so each project will inherit the global setting for user / group.

Clicking on User Rights tab will lists users with a table to grant user rights. Specific to that user, it would be the same for group rights tab.

You can also search by a user name. This will make things faster to find that specific user.
