The last version of Flyspray is simply amazing! it works like a charm :)

This is a small bug report in the eventlog page, that shows this message:

Notice: unserialize(): Error at offset 237 of 808 bytes in /home/elivebugs/bugs.elivecd.org/themes/CleanFS/templates/reports.tpl on line 88 Notice: unserialize(): Error at offset 229 of 796 bytes in /home/elivebugs/bugs.elivecd.org/themes/CleanFS/templates/reports.tpl on line 88

2440Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowOption to disable tag featureNew
0%
15.09.201715.09.2017 Task Description

There is a wish on the Flyspray mailing list:

Is there a way of hiding the TAGS input field from the Add New Task form?
Alan

If it is just hiding on that form, there are several options to achieve this (from simple to complex)

A) Hide by CSS

Add that rule to themes/CleanFS/theme.css CSS file:

#edit_tags{display:none;}

B) Hide by CSS (better)

Add a rule to a custom_*.css, for instance themes/CleanFS/custom_mytheme.css

#edit_tags{display:none;}

and choose custom_mytheme.css in your project settings.

D) Edit themes/CleanFS/templates/newtask.tpl directly

and remove the whole div-tag with id=”edit_tags” (all between ‘<div id=”edit_tags>”’ and its closing ‘</div>’ (not recommended)

E) Use a custom template

  1. Create a folder in themes/, for instances themes/mynotagtheme/
  2. Only copy themes/CleanFS/templates/newtask.tpl to themes/mynotagtheme/templates/newtask.tpl
  3. Make the changes to that newtask.tpl like in B) (custom theme not overwritten by Flyspray Updates if you keep or backup your themes/mynotagtheme/ folders, but requires review if something has changed within themes/CleanFS/templates/newtask.tpl between version updates)
  4. Choose your mynotagtheme as project theme. All other files fall back to default themes/CleanFS/

(not tested, but thats the way it should work with current Flyspray 1.0-rc5)

D) Nag or caress someone

to finish tag feature for Flyspray with options/permissions to turn it off per project or project group or something like that.

This would effect not only that newtask form but all places where that options should kick in (listing tags in tasklist, tasklist filters etc)

2441Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumrefactor dokuwiki image tagsNew

15.09.201715.09.2017 Task Description
I’ve tried inserting an image in the intro message but it doesn’t show. Is there something broken in the formattext.inc file? Seems unlikley because it’s so old but can’t work out why nothing shows.
Alan

I had to disable some parts last year within dokuwiki quickly due sever reported security issues in that area.

As tradeoff embedding images currently don’t work within dokuwiki textareas in Flyspray.

As I too wish that feature reappear working for my projects, this is on my personal list. But requires focused free time because must be made secure.

Maybe instead of using fetch.php of dokuwiki, we can use Flypsray’s ?getfile=id , which also checks permissions.
But must check also securly file types and maybe resize images to fit into the desired page (thumbnails).

1858Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowClone Tasks and ProjectsMaybe
0%
2.0102.04.201315.09.2017 Task Description

My workplace is piloting Flyspray for an internal project and one feature that my boss was asking about was the ability to clone tasks and projects.

We have reoccurring simultaneous projects that contain a large number of testing tasks, and tasks dependent on other tasks, which makes starting up a new project very tedious. If it was possible to clone the contents of a task, or an entire project, we could create template tasks/projects that would really speed up the workflow.

2439Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowClone a ProjectNew

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

2436Backend/CoreBug ReportLowdokuwiki renderer creates nonunique html-id for h1,h2,h...New
0%
202.08.201702.08.2017 Task Description

The dokuwiki renderer automatic creates for each h(1-6) tag an html id attribute, but doesn’t ensure that this:

  • is not used by Flyspray templates
  • is unique across all tasks (tasklist summary/description mouseover!), id must be unique on a webpage.

Example: id=”footer” and id=”title” are used by the default CleanFS template for example.

id=”footer”

title

id=”title”

title

id=”title1”

title

id=”title2”

The original intention I think is to make dokuwiki content each h-section linkable, for instance by a “table of contents” at top of a wiki content page.
This is currently not used by the dokuwiki integrated in Flyspray, but could be in future.

Possible solution

Add the task_id to the generated id h(1-6) tags, for instance “d1234_footer” “d1234_title”

d - like description

(t1234 used for tags/labels id currently)

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.

2429Backend/CoreInformationLowMy tasks URLUnconfirmed

109.03.201720.03.2017 Task Description

Hey peterdd,

I was wondering: is there a standard URL for “My tasks”? I have an internal website and I would like to create a menu with a few submenus (Add task and My tasks) that link to FlySpray. However if I place the URL for My Tasks (being logged in with my user account), and copy this link to the menu, all others that click the submenu My Tasks, are seeing the tasks that where opened by me or where I am assigned, not that user that is connected on Flyspray with his account on his PC.

So that’s why I am asking for a generic URL of My Tasks, so I can place it on this middle-site?

Thanks

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”.

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.

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.

21.11.201621.11.2016 Task Description

When filing a task, it’s possible to submit the task without any information at all being added to the main body of the ticket. This leads to reports that are of no value because the user can simply add some vague title, hit submit, and then wonder why nothing happens other than someone closing it later as invalid.

The main body of the ticket should be considered a required field and should throw an error if nothing is in the box.

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.

2214Backend/CoreInformationLowChanging status of task automaticallyUnconfirmed
0%
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.
