My version of PHP still shows deprecation warnings with flyspray.

Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /var/www/flyspray.itiab.co.nz/htdocs/adodb/drivers/adodb-mysql.inc.php on line 353

Have all mysql.connect instances been removed? The connect will be removed from PHP soon and will cause problems.

Ability to click field to edit ticket

TODO: return handler if request ok or fail.

TODO: also clicks on label should trigger show form.

Maybe the whole “click to active for editing this field” to one click too much.
So if the user has the rights to edit the value the form input or action button should be shown when viewing a task.
All other people just see the value if they have the right to view the value.

Hi,I would like to see a enhancement, where you can submit/edit and assign it to multiple components, as it needs work from multiple sides.

For example: A user asks for a new object to be visualized. This includes work of the GUI designers and altering internal core structures. For internal management, I would like to label this for both teams.

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
2058Backend/CoreBug ReportLowClosing of github.com 'Issues' featureNew
0%
24.09.201524.09.2015 Task Description

As discussed with the team some time ago, a consolidation of places where issues are discussed is wanted.

One of the results was, that we do not want people post issues to github.com Issues and instead use our own bugs.flyspray.org
and to prefer "to eat our own dogfood" and a have central place to handle tasks.

As a result we tried to reduce the open issueas on github.com. I was in the process of moving 2 of still 7 open issues there to bugs.flyspray.org when suddenly the Issues on github.com were closed. :-( Now the last 5 issues there are lost at the moment for me and the audience, which where mostly informations to interested users, not bugs.

I think just closing it without an easy accessible alternative is not the best solution.

At least we should wait until the oauth2 authentication for github users should be implemented and setup on bugs.flyspray.org , so people browsing github.com, finding Flyspray project just can
"Login with github"-feature on bugs.flyspray.org.

The blocker to do this: Currently there is missing an option to "connect" an oauth "Login with github"- Login with an existend flyspray userlogin.

So that one userid in flyspray can:

  • login with username and password
  • login with one or more of his social accounts (github, facebook, microsoft, g+) if they are enabled (would it restrict to github.com accounts for bugs.flyspray.org)
2057Backend/CoreBug ReportLowDo not resubmit forms on browser reload button or F5New
0%
122.09.201523.09.2015 Task Description

On some forms, when the user presses the reload button of this browser, the POST submit can be resubmitted.

Browsers can warn about this (Chromium, Firefox, Konqueror tested and they show a warning dialog) before executing the second POST.
But people on Flyspray mailing list wrote they experienced double comments.

Simple solution is just HTTP GET redirects after a successful POST. (HTTP 303 or HTTP 302)
But maybe there is a better method than a second roundtrip always needed?

Success, Error, or Warn-messages to the user are stored in the $_SESSION variable for displaying on the second GET request.
But I think that this is a bit ... mmh... not perfect.

For example, I would like to have in the direct response at which position in a form an input error is, not just the message bar in the top center as it is currently that just dissappear after a few seconds.

Also take care the browser back button still works as expected for the user.

2048Backend/CoreBug ReportLowerror when adding data containing national charactersUnconfirmed
0%
09.09.201509.09.2015 Task Description

this one is somehow tricky, it doesn't happens always but sometimes when fields or filenames contain national characters (I'm in Spain) flyspray returns an error looking like this one:

Query {INSERT INTO `flyspray_attachments` ( task_id, comment_id, file_name, file_type, file_size, orig_name, added_by, date_added) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?)} with params {189,711,189_9c5d837bb10b7e0989a3c8be8d,application/pdf; charset=binary,736986,Guia de aplicación medidas difusicón y publicidad.pdf,4,1441827828} Failed! (Incorrect string value: '\xCC\x81n me...' for column 'orig_name' at row 1)

here we have a pdf named "Guia de aplicación medidas difusicón y publicidad.pdf" but I had this error also with titles or descriptions containing spanish letters...

2038Backend/CoreBug ReportLowJscalendar must be replaced with something elseNew
0%
223.08.201524.08.2015 Task Description

It's old. There has been a newer version 2.0. Even that one is not supported anymore, although some documents still remain available. The calendar component relies on its language translations files to be complete, or it breaks. Unfortunately, as I found out a few weeks ago, they are not, after switching the default language from english to my native one. Without having a good replacement for it, some of the translations for flyspray itself we've been getting lately are half-way unusable. Not for an ordinary user, but for anyone actually having to edit a task and its due date.

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)

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.

2007Backend/CoreBug ReportLowtime on project overview activity timelinesNew
0%
18.07.201518.07.2015 Task Description

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)

2005Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowone account, several authenticationsNew
0%
1.1 devel18.07.201518.07.2015 Task Description

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.

1836Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowNeed permission option to view only own tasksPlanned
80%
1.1 devel727.02.201322.04.2015 Task Description

In global permissions there is 'View tasks'. This makes it so a user can view all tasks. Need a way instead that they can view only their own tasks, for example a permission called 'View own tasks'.

If 'View own tasks' is checked for a user, in the project list we should only show projects which contain tickets that that user is a part of. Within a given project we should then only show tickets that the user is a part of if they have that permission set.

So for example if 'View tasks' is set, show user all tasks. 'View tasks' is not set, but 'View own tasks' is set then show them only their own tasks and projects.
