2536Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumstore session in Flyspray databaseNew
0%
221.01.201915.03.2019 Task Description

Currently the sessions are stored by the webservers default settings.

Having this sessions under control by Flyspray by storing it in the database has following advantages:

  1. Allows handling of all sessions of a user by Flyspray.
  2. Providing a session management for each user. The user can see on which devices he is currently logged in and could also force a logout on selective devices.
  3. A forced logoff of all or some user sessions is easy implementable for admins.
  4. Statistics about how many users and who is logged in. (user status: hide always, online, offline, do not disturb, ..)
  5. Could make onpage-notifications easier to implement.
  6. .. ?

Disadvantages:

  1. A potential unknown security bug in Flyspray that could lead to reading a session db table could leak informations like who is currently online/active and make further attacks more focused or makes session takeover easier.
  2. .. ?

peterdd29.07.201929.07.2019 Task Description

Closing a task with selected close reason duplicate should warn when there is no comment or FS # id is given in the close comment text field.

The task is closed as duplicate without any further notice. The information to which task it is duplicate or a description (if the problem is logged/handled outside Flyspray) is lost.

Possible solutions

Frontend hints

  • variant F1 (soft): When duplicate as close reason is selected, a placeholder attribute in the close comment text field could be shown/updated. (maybe as ‘css only’ possible)
  • variant F2 (harder): Deny sending the form if duplicate selected, but comment text field is empty. and shows warning info. (javascript required, nojs browsers still send form.)
  • variant F3 (hard): Deny sending the form if duplicate selected and no task id detected in comment text field. and shows warning info. (javascript required)

Backend deny

  • variant B1 (soft): When request wants close a task with duplicate reason and (cleaned) comment string is empty, deny closing the task and give feedback to user why it was denied.
  • variant B2 (hard): It requires detecting a task id in the comment field and the first detected task id is taken for referencing as ‘is duplicate of’. Limitation of this is that the duplicate could be also a ticket or something of a complete other system.

2575Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowability to view and reset Flyspray default settingsNew
0%
19.09.201919.09.2019 Task Description

Motivation

Over the years the count of possible Flyspray configuration options has grown. Meanwhile there are ~60 global Flyspray settings stored in the prefs database table in contrast to only 14 entries of the 0.9.7 (not 0.9.9.7!) version from around 2005. But each configuration setting might add a little to the feeling of overwhelming when there are too much switches, buttons, checkboxes and probability of a misconfiguration raises due misunderstood or overseen settings.

But Flyspray still aims to be easy to use and work with while being accurate and customizable.

Proposal

Having a way to view the description and default value of each option would probably give people administrating a Flyspray installation a better understanding of each setting and confidence in making good decisions for their use case.

With the flyspray-install.xml file within the setup folder we yet have an elegant solution that is waiting to unlock its power!

Unfortunately the setup/ folder requires (until now at least) to be removed after install or upgrade. So we need a way to keep the flyspray-install.xml of the installed version. A trivial way would be to copy it to the include/ directory after any install or upgrade, but also other solutions could be.

Keeping the flyspray-install.xml could making following features easier:

  • Reading default value of prefs setting. That could be shown for example as css title attribute /tooltip for each setting in the matching admin forms.
  • Reading default value and field description of any table field using the descr feature of ADOdb xmlschema03.
  • Comparing the real database structure with the table structures in flyspray-install.xml . This could be useful if someone extended or fiddled with database/tables to compare with official Flyspray releases. Or for developers to compare if an database upgrade went well and as intended.
  • Having the description of a setting or database field contained within the flyspray-install.xml is good at one place and the information is not spread around like in an external manual/wiki that maybe get unmaintained, not in sync with the application or get even lost over the years.
  • Using the xml format makes a migration easier (in a broader context, to Flyspray or away from Flyspray)
  • Using the descr tag could be used to hold information which field(s) of a database table is/are foreign key field(s) pointing to primary key field(s) of another table, even if ADODB xmlschema03 does not support it yet. Would generating database schema diagram directly from flyspray-install.xml possible. (instead of manually painting it that gets outdated when structure changes)

Things to take care:

  • ADOdb and xmlschema03 does not handle table comments and field comments yet. The descr tag so is there only used when looking into the .xml file, but it does not appear in the real database schema. To make this happen, there is a good portion of contribution to the ADOdB project required (making pull request, but also get them reviewed, tested, accepted and released with a ADOdb stable release)
  • ADOdb xmlschema03 does not define or handle foreign key constraints. Adding that would require a substantial amount of constribution to get it working reliable for all supported databases that could use foreign key constraints.
  • limits of table comment length, field comment length depend on database type and database version

PHP 8.0 is now released (2020-11-26) and Flyspray should be made compatible with it.

  • Replace removed and deprecated functions with alternatives in our source code.
  • Upgrade used libraries or make used libraries compatible:

    • upgrade used dokuwiki or make changes in our integration (probably just review our as official dokuwiki project contains too much stuff we do not need and changed much)
    • review used geshi
    • upgrade our swiftmailer version to PHP8 compatible version
    • upgrade our oauth2-client stuff to PHP8 compatible version
  • The @ operator no longer silences fatal errors. Some checks in installer or other areas might not work anymore as expected when the @-operator was used as silencer for previous PHP versions.

08.07.202108.07.2021 Task Description

For users with administrative permissions, a moderation UI for spam tasks could be useful.

For other normal users a “mark as spam”-button (similiar to voting for a task) could help moderators to identify spam tasks.

  1. Modify the spam task: Move to a hidden “Trash” project, replace summary and description with a default spam summary text end empty description.
  2. The decision which kind of punishment of the account who created the spam depends on several things:
    • Is it a previously normal used account who got captured by a bad guy and suddenly started spamming?
    • Is it a fresh bot created account who tried creating many spam task to promote bad websites or do search ranking manipulation?
    • Is it a sneaky smart account who waits for the opportunity to offload spam in a subtile manner?

I think this is not so easy to automate without producing false positives, especially for a project without commercial interest and funding and no huge meta informations like Google or similiar data collecting corporation who have the ability to identify spam waves across the internet.

24.11.202124.11.2021 Task Description

When there is a link to the new task action from another site to a Flyspray installation and the user is not yet logged in, there is a redirect to the Flyspray start page losing the GET parameters.

Example:

https://bugs.flyspray.org/index.php?do=newtask&project=1&item_summary=blablabla%product_category=1

Or short example (nicer urls using .htaccess rules)

https://bugs.flyspray.org.de/newtask/proj1?item_summary=blablabla&product_category=1

After login the user should see the form with the original link parameters (if the user is allowed to and parameters are valid)

Currently the user must navigate to the correct project (if there are several) and the parameters from the origin link are lost.

peterdd7122.11.201629.07.2019 Task Description

I understand this is likely due to some sort of XSS CSRF protection, but the delay doesn’t appear to be long enough to be useful for a lengthy comment to be posted. I’ve now lost two detailed comments in our tracker because the software threw everything out and generated a meaningless error.

Further, attempting to do the normal thing and making the browser resubmit the page results in Flyspray throwing “Error #3” something something repeated action and causing a redirect to the homepage.

Surely there has to be a better way to handle this that doesn’t incur data loss?

1856Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumWrong timezonesResearching

1327.03.201306.03.2015 Task Description

Hello,
when selecting timezone in user profile, it only offers offset based timezones. It should offer timezones like "Europe/Prague", instead, because in summer it is UTC+2 and in the winter UTC+1. Also UTC is the same as GMT.

Using offsets will cause invalid future and past times when crossing daylight saving or when something other changes.

Adding daylight checkbox is not enough and will cause additional troubles. Just use names and store them as ENUM in database, not offset. This problem is pretty complicated and the only solution is to use names and let libraries to solve it for you.

Thank you.

Problem: By replacing just the project_id of the closed task it is possible the task then has invalid field values within the target project.

Possible scenarios:

  1. Ignore invalid values within the target project
    • Pro: Easy to do, an immidiatly revert back to the old project would “heal” the task properties.
    • Contra: may effect accuracy and reliability of other parts like searching, listing, statistic calculations
  2. Silent change task field values to valid field values of the target project if necessary
    • Pro: relative easy to do
    • Contra: a bit loss of information, little side effects
  3. allow user to modify the fields that must be changed so that every field of the task has valid values within the target project
    • Pro: accuracy
    • Contra: a bit loss of information(fallback to default values) if there are no similiar field values selectable within the project
  4. allow user to modify the fields, fields or field select values that do not exists in target project will be automatically created.
    • Pro: accuracy
    • Contra: target project may be cluttered with too many fields/field values

0%
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)

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)..

1237Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumAllow Multiple Owners Per CategoryPlanned
0%
2.04709.04.200710.08.2015 Task Description

Currently, only one owner can be applied per category (at least, that's what the tooltip implies). The ability to add more than one user, a user group, or a mix of the two to a category would be ideal.

Often times, more than one programmer will work on and maintain a feature that cannot be divided into subcategories with the various programmers dispersed accordingly. In such cases, setting all such programmers as owners of the category is beneficial in that they will all receive notifications.

Also, having a parent category's owner receive alerts if no owners are specified for a sub-category benefits from this ability. I may have a "User Interface" group that has all of my UI developers in it; assigning the group to the "User Interface" root category means all relevant developers find out about a new issue that was not directed elsewhere.

One potential conflict does arise with another Flyspray feature. If "Auto-assign a task to the category owner" is enabled, care must be taken to assign no users or the first user to the task; personally, I would prefer no one being assigned and seeing the wording changed to "Auto-assign a task to sole category owners". Worst case scenario would be another option asking if no one or the first user would be assigned to a task in that instance; if a group is specified, the first user in the group would be chosen.

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.

A very useful feature would be to be able to manage a list of custom fields by project, and to be able to add and fill any of these fields to any task.
So we could be able to search on the presence and content of a field.
We could be able to sort the tasks by this field when they are displayed in a list.

A use example is when you create a bug by reference to another external list. It can be very useful to have a field that references a line in the external list.
