peterdd712.05.202113.06.2021 Task Description

My project has 37 pending requests. Each has a set of Accept / Deny buttons next to it.

If I click on Deny, a textbox pops up for me to enter “Reason for denial” but the entire page immediately regreshes/reloads back to the task list before I have a chance to enter the reason and submit it.

I can always “Accept” the request implicitly by going to the appropriate task and closing/re-opening it, but there’s no way to “deny” something without going through this UI path.

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?

There are not http → https redirections.

Only one example:
- http://www.flyspray.org/docs/download/ is not redirected to https://www.flyspray.org/docs/download/

Note: It is better to have the main website in https://flyspray.org/.

http://www.flyspray.org/ + https://www.flyspray.org/ + http://www.flyspray.org/ must be redirected to https://flyspray.org/

peterdd1.0-rc11729.04.202105.05.2021 Task Description

I administer a small personal (<1K ticket) 1.0-rc9 instance running on a Fedora 32 host (php 7.4.16, postgresql 12.6) Following the upgrade instructions (ie transfer attachments, avatars, flyspray.conf.php) the setup/upgrade tool loads, and prompts me to upgrade.

Unfortunately, the upgrade fails spectacularly, with a reported SQL error that belies what’s actually wrong. Here’s a snippet from the postgresql logs where the upgrade is failing:

2021-04-28 10:33:07.190 EDT [2032049] ERROR: column “attachment_id” of relation “flyspray_attachments” already exists
2021-04-28 10:33:07.190 EDT [2032049] STATEMENT: ALTER TABLE flyspray_attachments ADD COLUMN attachment_id SERIAL
2021-04-28 10:33:07.194 EDT [2032049] ERROR: current transaction is aborted, commands ignored until end of transaction block
2021-04-28 10:33:07.194 EDT [2032049] STATEMENT: ALTER TABLE flyspray_attachments ADD COLUMN task_id INTEGER
[…and everything else fails because the transaction aborted…]

It appears that the upgrade script is blindly trying to create columns that already exist in the -rc9 database, and postgresql is treating this as a failure. Because the entire upgrade happens within one transaction, this means the entire upgrade fails at the outset and won’t ever succeed.

The way past this specific problem is to make these ALTER TABLE operations conditional (eg “ALTER TABLE flyspray_attachments ADD COLUMN IF NOT EXISTS task_id INTEGER”).

peterdd1.0-rc11729.04.202123.07.2021 Task Description

I administer a moderate-sized (~14K ticket) 1.0-rc9 instance running on a Fedora 32 host (php 7.4.16, mariadb 10.4.18) Following the upgrade instructions (ie transfer attachments, avatars, flyspray.conf.php) the setup/upgrade tool loads, and prompts me to upgrade.

It churns a while before refreshing the screen, claiming a successful 1.0-rc10 upgrade. However, the upgrade seems to not actually “stick”, because clicking on the “return” button I’m dropped back into the upgrader, which is once again claiming I’m running 1.0-rc9 and prompting me to perform the -rc10 upgrade.

According to Flyspray’s admin ‘checks’ tab:

* PHP 7.4.16
* MariaDB 10.4.18
* default_charset: utf8mb4
* default_collation: utf8mb4_unicode_ci
* All tables are ‘InnoDB’

There are no errors logged that I can find, but the upgrade is clearly not working. If I revert to the -rc9 php files, everything continues along as if nothing was done.

Any suggestions?

Add a system where people can donate towards a specific task. For example, I want to donate $10 if someone implements gravatars. The money sits in a pool, and then when someone claims that task and it is marked as completed by the admin, they get the bounty (less some commission that goes towards the project).

11.03.201511.03.2015 Task Description

This is a parent task for all small helping or explaining tooltips that can be maybe added where approriate.

Many people don't like reading external documentations, which sometimes often is also not up to date with the current used version.

If you are doing something in Flyspray and you don't know exactly how it works or have to be done rigth and you must look at documentation, it breaks your workflow.

The best case is if its all perfect intuitive and you don't have to read any help texts. But in the case of more complex operations or things that do many things behind the scene a helping tooltip or explanation can give you a mental map and more trust into what the tool is doing.

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.

I find it irritating to have the oldest activity on the right side and newest activity on the left side of the small activity bars.

There is also no time scale description. This could be added by showin it on :hover to keep the simple appearance.

A complete new feature would be to replace the image generation by rendering the bars in the html in the same request, e.g by inline svg or canvas element. This would enable adding some interactivity with the activity bars..
A related feature request is FS#1991 (project progress)

1.1 devel23.07.201523.07.2015 Task Description

We should change the document logic a bit here. For public projects search engines like well structured pages more then others. And we get a consistent structure too in future for Flyspray.

This I have in mind

Project area name ("All Projects" or "Project name")

  • Currently: h1-tag
  • My wish: not a h1-tag anymore here

Admin setting / Project setting pages, title of the sub pages

  • Currently: h3-tag!
  • My wish: h1 tag

Section names in these pages

  • Currently: h4-tags
  • My wish: h2 tags, subsubs then h3,...

Task view page

Task name=summary

  • Currently: h2 tag
  • My wish: h1 tag

Task descriptions then can use structuring their task description starting as h2,h3,h4 (done by dokuwiki renderer for example)

Toplevel project overview /dashboard

  • Currently: h2 for each project name
  • My wish:
  • * keep h2 for each project name
  • * h1 for the page heading (maybe hidden by css)

New Task page

  • Currently: h2 for summary and tags. Wrong logical nesting!
  • My wish: drop the h2 for form field labels

Reports page

  • Currently: h3 tag
  • My wish: h1 tag

Roadmap page

  • Currently: h3 tag for each milestone
  • My wish:
  • * h2 tag for each milestone,
  • * h1 tag for heading (maybe hidden by css)

MyProfile page

  • Currently: h3 tag for each section
  • My wish:
  • * h2 tag for each section
  • *h1 tag for heading (maybe hidden by css)

(Sure the theme.css must be adapted to this change.)

2023NotificationsFeature RequestLowInform users if reminder is disabled in system settingsNew
0%
04.08.201504.08.2015 Task Description

There are 5 possible cases that IMHO should be handled more user friendly:

  1. There is no cronjob for the reminder (schedule.php) setup → Reminders are never sent
  2. Reminding is disabled in the global settings → Reminders are never sent
  3. Reminder setting 'email' only → Reminders are only sent to users who set their notification setting to 'email' or 'both' and setup an email address
  4. Reminder setting 'jabber' only → Reminders are only sent to users who set their notification setting to 'jabber' or 'both' and setup a jabber address
  5. Project notification setting not set → ??? (research...)
  • If notification is disabled (1. or 2.), the notification tab on 'task details page' should adapt to that I think. (by css style or message or tooltip)
  • If notification is restricted to only one notification channel, the current user should be informed on notification tab on 'task details page' if he would receive notifications with his current notification settings.

Thomasz wrote:
The other thing that I cannot find how to make the text to be visible in the whole column (as with the summary I get the ... at some point of the text).

The root of this is found in scripts/index.php in function tpl_draw_cell():

case 'summary':
            $value = tpl_tasklink($task, utf8_substr($task['item_summary'], 0, 55));
            if (utf8_strlen($task['item_summary']) > 55) {
                $value .= '...';
            }
            break;

We live in a world now, where the view port ranges from 320 pixel width mobile screens up to 4k+ wide tv screens, the amount of columns is configurable from minimal to all available fields of a task. We currently let the browser automatic decide how wide he renders each column depending on table content and available window size.

Well, that ellipsis problem can be handled at different levels:

  • motivate the task creators to use short task summary if possible (e.g. show a hint/tooltip when typing the summary gets over a limit, in our case the hardcoded limit is 55. ). Short task topic/summaries are easier to read/scan for the users.
  • replace the hard ellipsis by a pure css solution, that adapts to users browserwindow size/space in in the columns for summary
  • drop the ellipsis thing complete, task summary always shown full length, table rows adapt in height automatically.

Possible CSS solution:

1960Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumforeign key relations between versions and tasksNew
0%
209.03.201513.08.2015 Task Description

It seem that when deleting a version entry in a project, that tasks that have this version assigned are still connected to this deleted version. For example FS#1222 (on 2015-03-09).

There are several options to solve such things:

  • Deny deletion of version as long as tasks assigned to this project version.
    • Either by doing a testing SQL query to check this case coded in PHP. Take care to keep this centralized, must also be respected by an eventually later added Flyspray API (XMLRPC or whatever).
    • add SQL foreign key constraints with ON DELETE RESTRICT
      • Pro: some business logic can be directly enforced by SQL.
      • Cons: higher requirements for hosting, if using mysql innodb tables must be available on the hosting
  • Move the tasks of this version to a default fallback version before deleting the version tag.
    • Either doing one transaction doing : 1. move the tasks to its fallback version, 2. delete the version
    • add SQL foreing key constraint with ON DELETE SET $fallbackversionid. Some pros & cons like on the the denying option.

The same for other assignments for tasks.

This issue is similiar to the massop issue: (https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/issues/130)

If a project has no versions defined yet and there are also no 'global' versions defined,
there is not need for displaying the version selects.

Same for categories. If no categories in project and no global categories then no need for displaying a cat select.

Maybe a tooltip/hint in the extended search form to inform the user that the fields were hidden for that reason.
