2021-04-23: Flyspray 1.0-rc10 released See

If you are upgrading from older version, please wait for 1.0-rc11.

ID Category Task Type Severity Summary Status Progress Assigned To  desc Due In Version Opened Last Edited
2040Installer and UpgraderInformationMediumFS1.0 Release buildsConfirmed
1.0523.08.201517.04.2019 Task Description
  • Use github releases for the release? peterdd: Yes, currently only source releases without 3rd party vendors.

The Flyspray 1.0alpha1 .zip file release unzips directly to the current directory.

.zip files from github unzip to it’s own directory ( unzips to flyspray-master/ ). This is a bit safer, because you cannot accidently mess your directory structure with it.

  • The release should contain the binary fontawesome files instead of linking to the external CDN. Removes one dependency/singlepointoffailure. How this can be configured for automation? included in Flyspray source now. :-)
  • document how a release is exactly created. (consistency, reliability, automation, knowledge sharing for maintainers see below :-) )
  • Get in contact with os distributions, that could add Flyspray releases to their repositories (*BSD, Linux distributions, ..) This repositories could add the dependencies like ADODB within the packages (.rpm, .deb,..)
  • Get in contact with web hosting providers who provide integreated 1-click installs of software for their web hossting customers.
  • Get in contact with container builders (docker, ..)

Steps how to do a Flyspray release (since Flyspray 1.0 RC)

  1. Edit includes/class.flyspray.php on and set the correct version for the release there (remove the ' dev’ from the version string), commit as new branch e.g. 1.0-rc1
  2. Prepare a new release on , write a summary of changes since last release, choose the branch you created in the previous step, save as “draft”.
  3. “Release” the Flyspray source on github when satisfied with layout
  4. Run buildscripts for different php versions (see comments at FS#2040)
  5. Upload the created .zip and .tgz files to
  6. Upload the created .zip and .tgz files to stored since 1.0-rc2 only on to avoid redundancy
  7. Test the created blobs on different servers too.
  8. Edit the and link the source and packaged .zip and .tgz files
  9. Write a new article with a summary of highlights of changes since last release for the frontpage on
  10. Send an email to the Flyspray mailing list
  11. Important: If all is nice and shiny: Update the version string on so admins of flyspray get informed a new Flyspray release is available now. For instance change from 1.0-rc to 1.0-rc1 if you are releasing Flyspray 1.0 RC1. Must be the exact version you set in includes/class.flyspray.php .

Maybe we can use this sequence as template on for releases? :-)

2089Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumadding same taskid as subtask or related task should be...New
1.0207.11.201518.11.2016 Task Description

Both is a bit illogical, but both is currently possible! ;-)

1 ←- 1

So when setting the parent task id checked for creating loops is needed:

Loop with 2 tasks: 1 ←- 2 ←- 1

Loop with 3 tasks: 1 ←- 2 ←- 3 ←- 1
Loop with n tasks: 1 ←- ... ←- n < – 1

As I think there are currently no recursive reads that could lead to an endless loop, but should be kept in mind when someone wants to programm rendering a gantt chart.
E.g. by limiting the depth of subtasks for example.

2121Backend/CoreBug ReportMedium'my assigned tasks' uses like %?% search instead of use...Confirmed
1.0319.04.201603.02.2018 Task Description


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.

2453Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumvalidate category before storing a new taskNew
0% Task Description

Currently the category_id is not checked if the value is legal for the project when a new task is created.

  • must be unsigned int
  • must be an active category_id of the project or global category.
  • setting a category_id must be allowed - see project settings.

If invalid category_id is sent, deny creating task and show error message and show filled form again.

If no category_id is sent (or empty string) and category select is enabled:

  • either choose a default category


  • implement feature request FS#2451 and show that user should select a category.
2491Backend/CoreBug ReportLowgroup member links if project manager but not adminNew
0% Task Description

When a user has project manager permissions, but not admin permissions, then on the ‘edit group’ pages like index.php?do=pm&area=editgroup&id=8
the links in the list of users of that group are


instead of linking to the users page


and a redirect follows with Error #4: You don’t have administrative rights.

2635User InterfaceFeature RequestMediumimprove usability of add/remove tags to/from tasksPlanned
70% Task Description

Integrate the selectpure javascript to the new task and edit task form.

By default there is a text field where tag names are separated by ‘;’ character.

Selectpure could instead show the tags with their visual layout with a little ‘x’ inside on the right side for removing a tag and autocomplete when typing a tag name to show existing tags from the flyspray_list_tag-table as possible selections.

Instead implemented a CSS and raw javascript solution with a single taghelper.js without any dependancies.

A button beside the tag input text field toggles a list of available tags for the current task, depending on the project and settings.

Still TODO

  • styling of added tags
  • highlight tags that would be removed when the task will be saved.
  • highlight tags that would be added when the task will be saved.
  • highlight tags that are attached to the task in the available taglist.
  • highlight tags that are added to the task in the available taglist.
  • optimize layout for this feature.
1222Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumWorkflow engine / Role-based State Transition Rules Eng...Unconfirmed
11625.03.200705.05.2019 Task Description

I have been working with Eventum ( for quite sometime now and in contrast, I like Flyspray for its simplicity and practicality. But one thing I badly miss (and something that Eventum scores high) is a Workflow Engine. If not a sophisticated W.E., I (as an Admin / Manager) should be able define role-based state transition rules of the tasks reported in a particular project. For example, I should be able to implement the following scenario:

  1. For a “Developer”, the subsequent tasks from various states. Likewise for other roles
  2. “Developer” should not be able close out the bug reports. He/she can only flag them as implemented. The “Reporter” of the bugs or the “Manager” alone should be able to close out issues
  3. ..
  4. .. it will go on like that ;-)

This feature, in my opinion, is very crucial for corporate organizations to give a serious consideration to Flyspray.

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.

This information is already stored in the table "reminders" in field "last_sent". It might be helpful in some situations, if this date/time would be visible to the user on the reminder list, too.

1521Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowAssignees should be able to see and create reminders fo...Unconfirmed
22.11.200818.04.2009 Task Description

In version (unfortunately I couldn't select this version in the dropdown list on the left), reminders can only be created and edited by Admins and Project Managers. I recommend to give Assignees the permission to create reminders for themselves. To minimize any programming impact, his may be done as part of the "edit own tasks" permission.

This topic has been reported by Engie as part of Bug #713 for version 0.9.8 as well: "Also it would be useful if a user could create reminder for himself." Although that bug is already closed ("fixed in devel"), this part is not yet solved in the current version.

1749User InterfaceBug ReportLowSubmit form buttons on lower rightUnconfirmed
117.06.201224.09.2015 Task Description

Any form should have its submit button directly below and to the right of the form.

This is most egregious on the New Task page where you have to scroll back up to the top right to submit.

1791Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumAbility to merge version, OS, etcSuspended
1112.12.201212.01.2017 Task Description

For example, say I no longer want 1.1,, 1.0.0, etc. So want to merge them all into one version 1.0. Same goes for OS, and others

1856Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumWrong timezonesResearching
1327.03.201306.03.2015 Task Description

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.
