1971Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowa field like challenge level or doom levelNew
0%
12.03.201512.03.2015 Task Description

We have severity field.
We have priority field.
We have estimated effort field.

But we don't have a fíeld to see how hard a task is to solve. Something like in doom 3d shooter a face from normal/easy to angry/bloody/very hard.

Imaging you have some people in a company, some base educated, some high educated, some are experts in their field, some do repeating easy tasks.

By adding the ability to set a 'doom level' on tasks this can complete the view over a project in addition to severity,priority,effort.

Edit by peterdd: Topic was discussed earlier on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/issues/130 (edit:It seems Jordan turned “issues” on github.com off in favor of bugs.flyspray.org)

The feature still exists but it is turned off until finished in a secure way. The possibility of sub and parent tasks requires many checks.

21.03.201521.03.2015 Task Description

It's a little like "text version". So you could use this exported changelog within a new release.

I think good was:

  • Only resolved tasks ordered by date (but of course without displaying the date) and only public accessible tasks
  • Without task number ("FS#...")
  • A download function via button

Currently it seems a user needs two accounts
to login by normal user-password and oauth2 login with facebook,g+ etc.

Better would be if a normal username-password registered user could connect a oauth2-login with his existing login.

Tags can only be added on the “new task” page, not managed on the “edit task”-page. done

  • The information when a tag is added or removed and by whom logged through flyspray_history table is still TODO.
  • The information when a tag is added by whom is visible when hovering over it in the task details view
  • Tags are now also searched by the submitted search string when doing a task search.
  • In addition to the project level ‘free tagging’ which allows users create new tag names there exists also a use_tags permission per project. This is currently only used on some of the appropriate locations.

This could be done by a textarea field (like comment text or task description) on the myprofile page and stored in a new field (of type text for instance) in the user table.

This allows the user to introduce himself to the other users.

Should be restrictive, for instance only simple text allowed, no html or tags.

2059Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowusage of github automated/webhook notificationsNew
0%
24.09.201524.09.2015 Task Description

We have no API yet for Flyspray.

But someone could write a simple php-file that can be called by a github.com auto notification, whenever:

  • a commit on github.com for Flyspray/flyspray is made

Github.com provides the configuration of such notification for a possible target like

https://bugs.flyspray.org/api/github.php

or

https://bugs.flyspray.org/api/github.php?project=1

in the settings of a project.

What the file needs:

  • import some of the existing Flyspray classes from includes/
  • config or load the secrets that are provided by github.com in the setup for the automatic notification
  • check that secrets and more for authentication and authorization of requests coming from github.com
  • parse the messages for Flyspray identifiers like ' FS#1234 ' or 'fix  FS#1234 ' or 'related to  FS#1234 '
  • take actions on the results of that message parsing like making adding comment or modifying a task status

06.08.201606.08.2016 Task Description

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

315.01.201717.01.2017 Task Description

We have some private Tasks in our FS-bugtracker to hide them from normal reporters. But we also have some external beta-testers in a betatesters-group and they should be able to see (and check) the private tasks without giving them a project manager status. So it would be good, if there is a switch in the group option to give specific groups the right to see private tasks.

2346Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowCustom css inheritanceUnconfirmed
0%
220.02.201723.02.2017 Task Description

If i set up a custom css in the main FS settings the style doesn’t get applied to all nested projects. I have to set the css to all projects explicitly to get the stylings work on all project pages.
Wouldn’t it be a good idea to first load the css set in the main dialog and after that load an additional css specified in the sub project? Then it would be possible to specify general stylings for all projects and project based stylings also.

2427Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowallow hotlinking (direct links) to uploaded filesUnconfirmed
0%
207.03.201709.03.2017 Task Description

Currently all attached files get renamed (like “screenshot331.png” → “attachments/14_72a4ca580abcdef69f60b1f”) and they could be downloaded only throught the php script (”/index.php?getfile=1234”) which requires that user must be logged in to view the file.
It is not very convenient when you need to show a file to some person who is on mobile phone at the moment or using not a work computer. Also sometimes you might need to share a file with anyone without having them to register at your bug tracker.

I suggest you to add a checkbox like “create a direct link” when uploading a file, which will save the file with original name and extension but adding some random generated prefix (like “screenshot331.png” → “attachments/14_72a4ca580abcdef69f60b1f.screenshot331.png”).

However this poses a high security risk so there should be a list of allowed file extensions (e.g. “jpg,png,txt,pdf,doc,zip”) - only these files could be saved with the original extension. This list should be accessible by the main administrator only, thus the safest option would be storing it inside the “flyspray.conf.php”.

2430Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowUser dependency on projectUnconfirmed
0%
216.03.201720.03.2017 Task Description

So, there would be great option if we can set permission to users to see and post only in specific opened projects in bug tracker.

Idea is, that user has all right to all projects, but in some cases we want that user can see only projects which is allowed and also to publish new tasks to only allowed projects.

In that case tasks overiew is locked and user must be logged in to see opened tasks.

2439Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowClone a ProjectNew
0%
15.09.201715.09.2017 Task Description

There is a request for cloning a project on Flyspray mailing list:

Would be a very welcome features to have Project Templates for repetitive workflow. Any idea if its in the pipeline?
Thanks

Well, not yet.

The question is, how exactly you want that project clone.

Do you want just a rough copy of the project table entry?
Thats quite easy and can even be done without programming or writing a line of SQL just by using PHPMyAdmin (or similiar Tools for PostgreSQL) and copy a row of the project table for example.
See yellow marked project table on the right of the attached dbschema screenshot.

The other extreme is copying every project depending list table entries to new ones.
This sure requires some programming, but not too hard to add this to Flyspray. (all yellow marked tables in the attached dbschema screenshot.

I attach a rough form mockup how could this could look like.

Possible solution

  1. add a new file scripts/ folder for instance copyproject.php (check admin permission)
  2. add a template file to themes/CleanFS/templates/copyproject.tpl
  3. Set a link to that clone form page somewhere, for example on the toplevel page of a project (see screenshot)
  4. Handle the adminuser (or add a clonepermission for that project manager usergroup) submitted form careful and savely either by includes/modify.inc.php (or like scripts/copyproject.php to keep it seperate from core)

The link to the clone form looks then ?project=123&do=copyproject

2447Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumAllow notifications when a new task is createdUnconfirmed
0%
226.10.201729.10.2017 Task Description

The only (only!) feature that I have missing in Flyspray is an option to receive email notifications when a new task is created

I think that this could be in the profile of the user, and/or in the main configurations as “send a notification to the -group- (admins?) when a new task is created”

Thanks a lot! flyspray r00lz after all these years, never failed, no bugs, no hacks, fast and efficient! :)

A Happy user.

2451Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowMod: blank Category - user must chose before pressing A...Confirmed

208.12.201714.12.2017 Task Description

Hello Peter,

I am interested in making the following mod:

When posting a new task, category should be blank by default, in order for the user that opens a new task to select that specific category.
If he doesn’t select any task, when pressing Add this task button, FlySpray should display an error message saying that the Category hasn’t been specified.

Do you think this mod can be made with the current version?
If so, do you mind if you help me a bit with the things that need to be modified?

Thanks!

2522Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowemail vs username login issuesResearching
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)
